My son has been going to Spokane Montessori North for 4 years, and he is just finishing kindergarten. It has been the most rewarding and fulfilling experience to watch my son grow, mature and become a leader in his school. His twin sisters joined him 2 years ago as 2 1/2 year olds. The experience has been unique but equally enjoyable for each of them. The teachers have the ability to see each child as an individual, guiding them as they learn in their own ways. I am so blessed to have found Spokane Montessori North, to participate as a parent, and to know my children are in a safe, loving and nurturing environment daily. I am confident that as my son starts first grade next year, he is more than prepared academically and socially. And I look forward to the next two years my girls will spend at Spokane Montessori North.

As older parents of an only child, my wife and I needed a preschool that provided a safe, diverse environment that would allow our child to grow socially and academically. Spokane Montessori School North has surpassed our expectations in every way. The staff is knowledgeable, experienced and caring. We have benefited as parents from their observations and advice. We have watched our son grow into a confident and caring boy who loves his classmates and has been challenged and inspired by them. He has developed a strong academic foundation and more importantly, a genuine love of learning. Our family has been truly blessed by this experience.

I would highly recommend Spokane Montessori North School to any parent looking for a strong foundation to academic education, while fostering independence and developing a critical thinking mind. Both of my children attend this school. My son began at age 3 and my daughter at age 2 . Both have benefited well from attending this school; however, the earlier you start, the more beneficial it is. So much happens with your child at this early age; language development, psycho sensory motor development, practical life (care of self, others, environment), grace and courtesy. In addition, they are introduced to math, reading and writing. My now 4 old can do simple math problems, write her name and is learning to read. My now Kindergartener is an avid reader and wants a Kindle! I truly believe in the Montessori method. Both of my children will be continuing this method of learning throughout their elementary school years. I am very happy with this school and so excited for their future.

My son has been attending this school for just over a year now and we love it! The school fosters an environment for learning that encourages children to learn through discovery. The Montessori methods that are used make learning fun and exciting and help children to "think outside the box". The teachers actively engage with the children and truly care about their development and about them as individuals. The school also provides parents with many resources and learning tools to help foster the Montessori methods of learning outside of the classroom. I feel blessed that my son is able to attend this school and I recommend it to all my friends and family with pre-school age children.

My daughter started here this school year, she loves it and so do we. The school provides a Montessori approach that is creative, while friendly and warm. The teachers are intelligent and loving and have great communication with parents. I know she is really cared for- she comes home happy, she goes to school happy! I am a happy parent.

I was quite disappointed with the teacher/student relationship (very cold/clinical), poor supervision, negative discipline tactics. The staff also lacked interest in parent concerns. The Montessori method is outstanding, and I do give this particular school 1 star for its use of that. Unfortunately I would not recommend this facility.

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.
