31 Parent Reviews for Rogers Park Montessori School

My children attended from preschool into elementary. I think the preschool is fine but the elementary is lacking. After wonderful reviews in preschool, my children got into elementary and the struggles began. We would have meetings on what to do and the follow through was weak at best. We were constantly ...  Read more

We joined RPMS last year in mid stream for Montessori and my daughter will be entering 1st grade next year. We have found the staff to be absolutely the best and she loves her teachers and the classrooms. We have made some incredible friends at the school both from the teacher side and and the parents. ...  Read more

We have been at this school for years and all our children attend. We are consistently surprised by not only the academic level at which our children are working but also their social skills. We've recommended this school to everyone we meet.

This is a fantastic school. The parents are involved, the teachers patient, caring and smart, and the facility is fantastic. The student body is thoughtful, articulate and caring. And the academics rock (once you get used to the less traditional format, which can be unnerving for some, it was for ...  Read more

Excellent school with wonderful staff who's strenghts lie in their ability to individualize instruction while adhering to a true Montessori model. My children have blossomed at this school.

I loved this school, and though it seemed very easy compared to public school, the transfer was surprisingly easy and the methods of hands-on learning when I was younger helped me understand more when I was forced into textbook learning. I must say from a first person point of view, it was amazing.

MEDIOCRE. the early childhood program was nice, but grade school is underwhelming, esp. given tuition. Leadership and governance was already weak and poor, (note early posts). Mismanagement and recent missteps further impaired leadership's ability to run a school. There are much better alternatives, ...  Read more

Excellent school, model Montessori classrooms. Low student staff ratio allows teachers to individualize instruction to suit each child. The teachers we have encountered are outstanding, I could not ask for a better environment for my children. Parent participation strongly encouraged. RPMS is warm, welcoming ...  Read more
