I'm not a MCHD parent. I'm not a MCHD staff member. I'm a MCHD alum who is now in college. MCHD was the greatest form of education I've ever experienced. My high school years after MCHD, as well as Montessori middle school elsewhere, pale in comparison to my experience as a MCHD student. Even with ...  Read more

Montessori Children's House of Durham (MCHD) is a FANTASTIC school. We ve been blown away by just how wonderful the teachers are and equally impressed by the whole school. They ve built an environment in which children genuinely flourish. Our brief experience with other schools makes clear what a ...  Read more

Our family has been at this school for 9 years, Preschool - through elementary. We could not be more satisfied with the education our children are receiving. Our children are becoming real thinkers and problem solvers and work well with others and independently. The teachers are experienced and dedicated ...  Read more

We regret starting our children at this school. Getting out is much more difficult than getting in. This is more of the "church of Montessori" than it is a school. Everything is secondary to the school's misguided interpretations of the montessori method. The head of school and some of the staff ...  Read more

Our last child to attend this school will be finishing this year. Sadly, this school is not what it was 3 or 4 years ago. The move to the new campus went horribly wrong. The school administration is completely out of touch with the lack of harmony among the children, as they are primarily focused ...  Read more

If you want to see an example of what our future leaders look like, visit MCHD and sit in during a class meeting in which the children discuss and solve class issues, watch a second year student confidently recite a poem in front of a whole roomful of parents, observe a knowledgeable third year student ...  Read more

Not clear to me any of these reviews present a balanced view of this school, which is where my son and daughter both went. Our experience with MCHD was that there is real magic that happens in the classrooms with the teachers, especially with the younger children. However, the school struggles with ...  Read more

I am a former teacher at this school. Many of the teachers at the school are dedicated professionals, focused on bringing out the best in the children and helping them to explore understanding who they are. Unfortunately, the teaching level is quite uneven between classrooms and the head of school ...  Read more
