12 Parent Reviews for St. Catherines Montessori

This was once a great school, but has significantly declined due to a serious lack of leadership by the Head of School. This person came into the position with no administrative experience whatsoever. She lacks professionalism, passion, basic business acumen, and more fundamentally, leadership skills. ...  Read more

I think the school is wonderful for the young child (through third grade or so), mainly because the primary and lower el guides and assistants are wonderful and are true and faithful Christians (though not necessarily Catholic) .

At an AMI school, the child is expected to engage in the materials by themselves with the teacher acting as the observer. The materials are considered inviting and, as such, should attract the attention of the child. If however, the child is not engaged in the material, redirection (verbal) is given. ...  Read more

Preaching the need for diversity and actually accepting diversity in the student population are two different things. The schools teaching population lacks significant diveresity. The treatment received by diverse students is questionable at best at this time. Leadership is lacking in this area. ...  Read more

I love this school and more importantly, my daughter loves it. The teachers, administration and staff genuinely care about the students and their success.
