I am a grandmother of three girls that attend Sandia Montessori School starting in the 2 year old room to the Elementary room. I have been very thorough about ensuring that their health and safety is met on a daily basis and have only great things to say about my experience here. The classrooms, bathrooms,

However, as a grandmother I feel it is inappropriate for me to investigate the boys bathroom! The girls bathroom has never had feces on the wall or been as filthy as previously posted. I do have a concern however that a male is entering the girls bathrooms. I addressed this with the staff and appropriate measures have been taken. Read less

My children were transferred into this school mid school year and the school was very accommodating. We like Mrs. Debra the elementary teacher very much. However, the bathrooms are filthy! The girls bathroom had feces on the wall and the boys floor had pee that had been there for a long time. I advised

After being assured they were cleaned routinely, I walked the staff member to the bathroom for a show and tell. I got down on the floor with wet paper towels and scrub the pee off the floor. I was called by the director and ensured the cleaning staff would fix the problem immediately. Four days later I did another inspection. Again, the bathrooms were not cleaned. I just could not allow my children to stay at a school with filthy restroom any longer. Read less

I have recently had a terrible experience with this school. After months of working with the staff of the school and a therapy group to assist with my son's delays, my son continued to not meet their standards to move to the next class. My son is autistic. They were aware of his delays. They had

We had hope that they would assist us in potty training (as purported to on their website), however they were "too busy" with two other kids who were potty training. I was furious. After bringing up potty training to the lead teacher of the 2-year old classroom, I was blindsided with a meeting in which they informed me that they didn't think they could handle my son. The next day (a Thursday) I was informed that they had decided to disenroll him, though he could stay for one last week...yet they had already packed up all his stuff for me. I was distraught. We did not stay the week. I took my son home. For weeks, I had to reassure him that he was a good boy and that it wasn't his fault that he could no longer go play with his friends. He had been at this school for over 9 months. Read less
