27 Parent Reviews for River Montessori Elementary Charter School

Over the 9 years my kids have been in the elementary education system we were always happy, but it wasn't until moving to River that we realized how much we were missing! School was fine before, but it's great now! I really wish we had made the change years ago!

My son is in TK at River and he absolutely loves it. He had Montessori preschool and feels very "at home" with the classroom and environment. He loves his teachers and friends. And I love that he is showing clear progress in language and math, and he is having a great time doing it. Some of his favorite ...  Read more

We have a second grader in his second year at River. We came from a Montessori preschool and are familiar with Montessori (why we chose the school). I think we have a phenomenal teacher, at times she appears gruff with the parents (a complaint I have heard from many), it is because she puts 100% of her ...  Read more

From the first day that my son started at this school(1st grade), his interested in learning sky-rocketed. He actually had an answer to, "What'd you learn at school today?" He would answer, "I learned about polygons, and geometry," "I learned how the earth was formed," "I studied the map of South ...  Read more

We are so happy with River! Our son is happy, engaged, challenged and excited to go to school! We've been very pleased with the academics, even though our son struggled with the academics when he first transferred. He had been at the top of his class at his previous school, but his previous school had ...  Read more

I am the parent of a son that began school at River their founding year. The first year was a little rough for all involved (they had a different principal at the time that didn't seem to connect with the River community). I am so happy we stuck it out. My son learned so much and thrived at River. ...  Read more

I am leaving River, and in doing so I decided to research before I chose-which is how I found these 2 reviews of River Montessori this school year within months of each other! They echo EXACTLY why I am pulling my child! I feel so validated right now I am not the only one who has experienced the lack ...  Read more

We love River! Our 2 kids are happy, engaged, challenged and excited to go to school. They have a voice and feel safe and respected. I am around River students, lower and upper, at least 2x/week, and have not witnessed bullying/disrespect on a regular basis. Montessori encourages kids to peacefully mediate ...  Read more

So much energy in the name of love went in to getting this school off the ground, and later on, getting accepted into the Old Adobe SD. It seems as though the reality of what this school is--and ISN'T-- has set in. Many of the original families have left, or are considering leaving. As stated below, ...  Read more
