22 Parent Reviews for Brooklyn Heights Montessori School

My oldest child spent eight years in the school, and her three younger siblings also attended. All four of them flourished there with all their different personalities, abilities, and interests. BHMS is a small school that allows every child to have their time to shine. The school remains true to ...  Read more

We absolutely adore this school. We have a child in both the Upper Elementary division and one in pre-K and we have been blown away by the balance of structure and freedom afforded our children. The environment seems remarkably "safe," or free from cliques and overly-competitive families. There are very ...  Read more

This school disappoints both academically and socially. While they talk a good game, the classes are too big and the teachers too checked out to really nurture small children. My child responded to the classroom structure academically but we were shocked to find so little "guiding" done in our class. ...  Read more

BHMS is a wonderful school. My children have been at this school since preschool and are now in the elementary grades. They are very happy at school and have developed close relationships with their teachers and peers. The children stay with the same teachers for 3 years which allows for these relationships ...  Read more

I couldn't be happier with BHMS. My two children, who are quite different both adore this school and so do we. The Montessori Method was new to us - mixed age classes child centered, emphasis on community and courtesy - but after four years I am completely sold and feel lucky they are a part of this ...  Read more

Honestly this school should lose its green medallion or at least be re evaluated for its current state of education teaching etc.

My children have attended the school for 5 years now and we have been very happy with the school. One of my sons had difficulty at first being in a mixed age class. He has sensory issues, adjusting to older children, the fact that they bring the younger kids to their level as opposed to the other way ...  Read more

We had a terrible experience at this school. My daughter, who entered in kindergarten, was constantly bullied in her class, as the other children, who had been in the same class for 3 years, did not want to accept the "new girls". When I complained to the teacher, she minimized the situation. When ...  Read more

Don't get me wrong, I think this is a fantastic school from Pre-School to 3rd grade. I attended BHMS for 11 years and I was very happy with the school until 4th grade. Then things started turning sour, where theories like "independence" and "self-motivated learning" translated into a lack of discipline ...  Read more

Many positives here, but a few negatives - Students with behavioral issues are not always counseled out, I'm concerned fundraising plays a part in this. Teacher feedback in PT conferences is very often lacking, many teachers are severely unprepared for the conference and look for the parents to take ...  Read more
