14 Parent Reviews for Old School Montessori

All staff is wonderful my child was doing great but had to pull her out. However the administration has lost all my respect. They're rude to the parents. They're mean to children they don't like. Staff always quit and diverce people are always hired in their place. Not that there is anything wrong with ...  Read more

A Montessori education gives the children the opportunity to learn at their own pace, choose their own work, and work independently, while ensuring that they get the critical academic, social and leadership skills necessary to succeed in the modern world.

My daughter had been attending OSM since she was 15 months old (shes 2 1/2 now) and is growing into a very thoughtful, inquisitive and polite girl with their guidance. She is nurtured on every level by the teachers in her class and loves her friends there. I have been kept updated and included in all ...  Read more

OSM goes above and beyond the education of the chldren. The staff is nurturing, professional and sees each child as an individual. Concerns or questions are addressed in a positive way and as a parent, I always felt part of the educational team. I have one child who completed 6th grade at OSM and ...  Read more

The "directoress" and the "administrator" have no clue as to how to relate to pre-school children nor do they ...  Read more

I was informed of this during a parent teacher meeting! I cannot believe someone leave alone a teacher would treat such small ...  Read more

As a parent of OSM kid in Kinder garden, I find that these guys are not flexible at all. They run their school at their own will...Parents have no say whether about frequent updates or any sort of requests are rejected on face. I have never seen such disrespectful asst directress. They apply the policy ...  Read more

As an educator at a public school who is putting both my children through Montesorri education, I would highly recommend this type of education for your child. OSM taps into the child's independence, making them responsible human beings who grow up appreciating the act of learning. Their curiosity ...  Read more

I do highly recommend this place to everyone ...  Read more

Beware! My son came home one day and told me he had eaten meat. I was a little unsettled by this as we had filled out many forms indicating our dietary preference and that did not include meat. I had gone in to talk to the teacher about this and brought it up hoping she would say that she didn t know ...  Read more
