Takes every conceivable holiday off and then some, including no school on otherwise fun holidays for kids such as Halloween and Valentines Day (more work for the school to do something special?). Doesn't welcome parent involvement in the classroom or foster community. "Operates as a non-profit" but is not one - rather there is no accounting for funds raised at fund-raising events. Overall, okay, but not great.

The beauty of a Montessori school is that it sets every child up for success, whether that lesson is in trinomial cubes or in washing their own napkins, a Montessori child comes away with a beautiful sense of self. Gardenview fulfills a parent's wish for their children to succeed in every possible capacity.

Gardenview has the most competent staff and best facilities of any of the schools I have had my children involved in. I am pleased every day with the new life skills my daughter is learning and her love of school. The academics are well balanced for the age group.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
