My son has been at GOMM almost three years now and we are extremely pleased with the school. I realize the style of learning is not for everyone, and it's important for parents to look into Montessori before enrolling their child in this school. However, my child has excelled since enrolling here. His ...  Read more

Totally misleading. Rude office staff. Some of the parents have an highly inflated perception of themselves and the GO community. Teaching (in my daughter's class) was minimal. Classroom management was horrible. My daughter came home every day talking about how noisy the classroom was and how other kids ...  Read more

My school is amazing! It was a Magnet Schools of America school of Distinction. Always something happening to support families and children. Happy children who love learning - more than just test scores!

My two granddaughter have attended this school since PreK. They are now in grades 6 and 3. We have been very impressed with the curriculum and the incredible support they teceive from their teachers. It has a caring and family atmosphere. Go Garden Oaks.

There have been some comments on here about the school's test scores. All of my children attend Garden Oaks and I am not the least bit concerned about the school's test scores. A Montessori program focuses on the whole child and on so many more factors than can be measured by a standardized test. ...  Read more

Great school. Lots of parent involvement and friendly environment. This is not a traditional kind of education. Do your research on montessori education before enrolling your child. It might not fit with your children's personality or learning capabilities.

As an educator I have very high standards for my children. Garden Oaks Montessori has met those standards. After reading many comments here I do see that some parents may not agree with the Montessori method for their child. That is what is great about education- there are choices! We have been at GOMM ...  Read more
