White Rock Montessori is a poor example of what a Montessori school should be. After taking a tour with the school director, I was less than impressed.

Don't waste your money or one year of your child's education at this school. The director is cold and unwilling to listen to concerns reguarding bullying issues.

After reading the various reviews on WRMS, I felt the need to address a few comments. Saying this school does not measure up academically and is basically for 'gifted' children is totally not true. I have two daughters than attended this school (from age 3 through 8th grade). They have both excelled

This is truly an exceptional school. The teachers are so warm and loving. It's about as close to home school as you can get. We love the fact that the school is also on a beautiful creek lot which encourages the children to be in nature. We are so happy that our children are allowed this wonderful experience.

Our daughter is entering her final year at White Rock Montessori. She has been enrolled there since age 3, she will be leaving the 8th grade this year; 2009-2010.

It has been outstanding and will continue to be so for those that get involved in the educational process of their child. If you are looking for an opportunity to give you child a safe, warm and friendly place to learn and grow, I doubt you ll do any better than WRM. Read less

My daughter attended WRMS for two years. Whether or not WRMS works for you completely depends on your unique situation. If you have a gifted child who is in need of social development, by all means WRMS would be a great place. I agree with what many have said about weak academics, emphasis on kindness

I would not recommend this school for most kids, as I feel most kids thrive from the sense of satisfaction they get from achieving goals that have been clearly set out for them. They will not get this at WRMS. Read less

There is a strong emphasis on the natural world and ensuring that the kids really understand what they are learning. My daughter attends a daycare/preschool in the afternoons, and consequently,
