This is my second year as a classroom teacher at Montessori of the Rio Grande Charter school. Ms Bonnie is the best! She is always putting the children first making sure that they are on target to do their very best academicaly and socially. I could not ask for a better partner in education.

My daughter is in 5th grade and has been going there since the first year it became a charter school. I am extremly disappointed in the school system.
