The teacher quality is excellent. They don't just "teach" they involve the students minds and they care, a LOT! It isn't just math that is taught, it is math concepts. Students are eager to learn in such a wonderful peaceful environment. My first grader was welcomed with open arms. In her prior ...  Read more

The Principal (Queen Jones) is awful, she is mean and rude and not friendly. The sec retary (ms harris) has an amazing personality and really fits in well.

I've been in the Montessori program for 6 years now, and I cannot imagine being in any other school.

I really wish that people could see ...  Read more

My children love to learn, and they learned to learn at this school. The test scores do not show the number of children who excel above average.

I have three children that have attended this school. It is a great learning environment, and if your child is a fast learner, they can excel even quicker in this classroom. Having older students in the class is a positive learning experience for everyone. The children are excited to go!
