As a parent, I always ask myself "What I am expecting from the teacher and school?" Now, I am 100% sure that I found all answers here at SFMS. First of all, I want my daughter healthy and happy!

There is a great tool available when researching a school. Anyone can call the San Diego County Licensing board at (619) 767-2200 and request a background check of the school over the phone. It is quick and easy, and anonymous. The agency can give you the last few years of operations and safety information ...  Read more

I am extremely happy with my experience at SFM. My son attended this school and I was very happy with how much he grew in so many different ways.

While it is true that the Head of School and Board of Directors have changed in the past year, the backbone of the school - its well educated and highly trained teachers and staff - remain mostly the same. The upper elementary classroom will reopen this year, taught by a male teacher with 9 years experience ...  Read more

The school buildings are run down. Mold is a concern. It is difficult to bring in new ideas for parent involvement and program enrichment with the leadership entrenched in "the way it's always been done".

Every organization has it's ups and downs. This is an excellent Montessori school and has been around for 40 years to prove my point. All politics aside, change can be both difficult and inspiring.
