In the 8th year of being open and a great school of choice in the Roaring Fork Valley, Ross is getting better and better. Our daughter entered Ross in Upper Elementary and is moving to the middle school programming which is more traditional and high school prep this fall. She is happy, loves going to ...  Read more

I have to respond to the previous post from "a parent" posted on April 22, 2013. It sounds as if this person has a serious grudge or chip on his/her shoulder. Ross Montessori is NOT a terrible school, where the children run rampant. Observe any classroom during their work cycle, and you will see children ...  Read more

This school is terrible. The teachers do not teach, merely let the kids run the show. It also obvious that there are an inordinate amount of troubled/disruptive kids who end up here after being removed from other schools. Do not be fooled by parents glowing reviews. MANY local teachers say that ...  Read more

My children have attended Ross Montessori for 6 and 7 years. Not once have they said they do not want to go to school. The manipulatives and real life learning tools used in the montessori setting make for meaningful learning in all subjects. Learning becomes interesting at our school. The teachers ...  Read more

It's future goals include all aspects of a child's educational as well as developmental needs. My children are way beyond happy there as well as ...  Read more

Ross is making great strides every year as still a very new school. A school is only as good as its teachers, and the pre-k, kindergarten, lower and upper elementary school teachers are awesome. Their reading test scores are going through the roof for the lower elementary grades(preliminary results ...  Read more

Quality leadership is lacking, training seems lacking, and morale seems low. I'll be surprised if this school is still around in 5 years without a significant change in both board and administration.

This school has some very dedicated parents and staff, yet in general the teachers seem overwhelmed with the Montessori method and test scores and the leadership lacks integrity and excellence to help this get sorted out.
