12 Parent Reviews for Montessori School Of Lake Forest

We spent 3.5 years at this school, and have since moved. We have moved to a much larger metropolitan area and cannot find a school to compare. While there were some rough years with a terrible director and one bad teacher (who are both gone), the teachers are fantastic and committed to the students. ...  Read more

I am a former teacher and founder of an accredited school - so a very tough customer. I actually had tears of joy when I first visited here for my toddler. A calm toddler classroom? It was in my school and it is here which you don't see often. She had been in 2 "schools" previously which turned out ...  Read more

I am updating a previous review of mine. I disagree with someone's negative post and do not think this is a 1 star school - that is an overreaction. I believe it is well worth the investment. We have been part of the MSLF community for 5+ years now. When my son was 4 and doing addition and subtraction ...  Read more

My daughter is 4 years old and has been at MOTL since she was 16 months and I have the highest praise for the school and the teachers. Our daugther's teacher and her assistant are creative and challenge the kids to be their best. They have several interactive events that involve the parents. They ...  Read more

My son has attended MSLF since he was two years. I knew the day I toured the school that MSLF provided the learning environment I wanted him to experience growing up. Ten years later, he attends the Adolescent Program. As his grandmother says, his face lights up when he talks about his school. His ...  Read more

My wife and I chose this beautiful Montessori school three years ago for its unique Adolescent Program on the recommendations of another highly-regarded area Montessori school we loved. It truly is a great 7th-9th year academic program combined with farmwork and 9th year trip to Rome to see Maria Montessori's ...  Read more

I have two children at MSLF who have been members of the community for six years. This is the second Montessori school they have attended. The teachers are extraordinary. Their commitment to the students and each other is commendable. The children have an environment ripe for learning. While ...  Read more

This Montessori school leaves a lot to be desired. There is so much politics that affect its decision-making & sometimes, to the detriment of the children & their families. Would not recommend to most families concerned about getting a strong, positive, thoughtful Montessori program.

The teachers are great, the method is great, the surroundings are beautiful, the staff is supportive and the other families there, generally have the same outlook, it is the love or learning that is important.

This school has faculty that are truly committed to the children they teach. My children have been taught by a woman who has been teaching at the school for nearly 30 years. Unfortunately the new school director is not perfect, but her flaws do not detract from the wondeful things that take place inside ...  Read more
