Seton is one of the very finest Montessori schools, and I have been in several. Doing Montessori right means offering an environment, staff and an attitude--where everything is what is best for the children, not what is most convenient for the adults. And yet they offer many different programs, before and after care, along with many opportunities to educate yourself as the parent of a young future peaceful and productive member of society.

Disappointing at best-that is all that I can say after witnessing first hand my child's lack of progress or nurtured growth in one year of attendance. Poor communication on behalf of teachers and administration re children's programming, growth and development. The only real communication is fundraising based-every week there is a request for SOMETHING either to be donated, volunteered or written a check for. The school is too instutional, rigid and downright unfriendly for young minds and hearts.

This is a terrific school my daughter and son attended for 4 years and then we had to unfortunately move to another state. The teachers are fantastic with excellent communication with the students and parents and truly know and care for each child. The Director is a very commited to a top notch true Montessori expereince and is open to parent communication and involvement. The montessori materials are abundant and of excellent quality. The variety of outdoor space is unique, beautiful, and varied..including woods, sand boxes, swimming pool, tree house, sledding hill, etc. The elementary program is top notch, as good as if not better than the other private schools in the area when comparing the actual cirriculum. The children developed a love of love learning, & learned a lot of advanced materials without the pressure or burden of lots of homework. There is a true respect for children's ability to learn any material despite their age. Both of my kids were doing work in all subjects that was being taught 2-3 grades later in public school. We truly miss this school & recommend it highly for anyone seeking an exceptional education with a family like caring, nuturing environment.

Despite the fact that there are closer Montessori schools (and other fine preschool programs) in our home town, my wife and I drive 20 mins each day out of our way to take our children to Seton. There are numerous reasons why - the facilities are top-notch, the outside space is exceptional, the hours are good, they have a wholesome hot lunch program, etc. - other schools have these amenities as well. The real reason is the staff; they are an outstanding group of professionals who care for children and help them grow into productive members of society. If you want your child to grow into a good, caring, and productive adult, there is no better place for them to get their start than Seton. I only wish every child had the start that these children get - we would all be living in a much better world.
