We only had a year at this wonderful school, but we're so grateful for the time our son spent in Ms. Rupali's class. He grew and blossomed in his academic skills and in his seriousness about school work (as well as in manners and other interpersonal skills). The community is warm and caring, and you can tell that it is a happy place every time you walk in the building for pick up or drop off!

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
CMS doesn't issue homework unless requested by the parents. Student's shouldn't be doing homework until a later age to keep them interested in school.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
All of the students and families are treated fairly and with respect by the staff members at CMS.

My child has been at CMS since September 2015 and she absolutely loves it. The teachers are great and anytime I or my wife has a concern they address it in a timely fashion. Highly recommend this school!

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

The teachers at this school are loving and warm , especially Ms Aisha. But the classrooms are overcrowded, and different age kids are crowded together in the same classroom.My daughter went to preschool there and sadly couldn't learn a thing. Her foundation for Kindergarten was so bad; that she will have to go a long way before she can start reading. Preschool here is just a crowded day care.

Teachers are great; but class sizes are way too big. And I don't understand the mixed ages .. how will the teacher know how to divide her time between the kids?

I love CMS. My daughter studied there when she was 4-5 years old. My daughter enjoyed to go to her school everyday. By the end of kindergarten she was reading fluently and had develop reading passion, problem solving and social skills. The staff is welcoming, very professional and caring. I highly recommend CMS!

Community Montessori School. Before enrolling our daughter back in Pre-school in 2010, we were looking at various preschools within Reston Area. One of our family friend's recommended CMS because his son went to the same school and they very much liked it. So, we thought of visiting the facility and talked to Mrs.Bonnie Redmond. Our first impression of the school was great -- the school premises was clean and the staff were very friendly....and we felt safe and secure. Fast forward three years, our daughter got graduated from Pre-school in 2013. During this 3 year period, there are countless ways on how great the teachers were in terms of developing our child's language, social, intellectual abilities. Our daughter was in Mrs.Rupali and Ms.Sepideh class (we call them "patience" in motion) and we are extremely pleased in how they added the fun part in helping the kids learn and discover letters, numbers, science, and hands-on activities. The cool part is celebrating festivals across the world, which in turn enforces kids to respect cultures across the world. Not to mention enforcing discipline. A BIG HIGH FIVE..overall....and will miss everyone at CMS.

My twin daughters attended CMS for two years as students in Ms. Rupali and Sepideh's class. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school. During their time at CME, my children flourished both academically and socially and they adored their teachers and their peers. This school does a very good job of instilling good manners/social skills, a respect for others, a natural curiosity about the world around them and how it works, and very strong academic skills all while providing children with a nurturing and loving environment. If I could keep them there forever, I would.

We started this school for our child when child was two and half. My child learned eating, routine, being with other children and above all going there to play with other kids. Teachers are caring and loving. My child made so many friends. It became part of family for him. I give immense credit to Mrs. Rupali and Sepideh's. This is a great preschool for young children. I have recommend to my friends and would continue to do so.
