The Montessori School Ratings & Reviews

This school was a complete disaster when I pulled my child out last fall. From talking to parents who left their child(ren) in longer and subsequently pulled them out and those who are still there, this school is in grave danger of imploding on itself. It has a lot of potential and if managed correctly it could be a good school. As of right now though, with a board that has been afraid of each other and very little teaching staff, this school is not a good choice. Communication with the students and the parents is key in a good school and TMS does not exhibit this characteristic. Find another school if you are looking at this one.

I have had all 3 of my children at this school, and am so greatful that my children have been able to experience this type of education that can be found nowhere else in Montgomery. This experience has given my children an amazing confidence in themselves and there abilities by allowing them to excell in areas in which they have interest and aptitude and allowing them the time to acquire skills in areas in which take more time for them, all the while instilling a strong sense of accomplishment. This would never have been able to happen in the public school system or the private schools in Montgomery which model themselves after the public schools. While there may have been some staff and administrative difficulties, things have settled into a calm nurturing environment with more than capapable teachers. I am overwhelmed by the sense of commitment currently evident in all the staff at the school to provide the children with a quality experience.

As I read through the less-than-stellar reviews of The Montessori School (TMS) from the past few months, I can only shake my head and say that they completely reflect our own unsatisfactory experience with this school. The toddler classroom directress recently left the school, the second lead teacher this year to depart unexpectedly. When I say "unexpectedly," I mean just that: there one day and gone the next, with no opportunity for their students to transition or even say goodbye. This school is in such a state of leadership and personnel discord that it spills over into the classrooms and ultimately affects the children. And when one of this school's directresses opts to pull her own children out of TMS and enroll them in a competing Montessori school across town, that should speak volumes about the state of affairs at TMS. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

My children went to this school during good times and through recent challenging times. The school has recently been through an (unnecessary) re-invention to change the school name, the staff mix, and the website, but not focusing on areas that really need attention. While the intentions of the (volunteer) board seemed good, it appears the board has lost their way and continue to make bad operating decisions without admitting to or learning from past mistakes. This has decimated the community. I removed my children when the board failed to respond to concerns of employee issues (employees arguing angrily with each other at work) and when they showed a lack of stability in my children's learning environment (teachers leaving suddenly, teachers being asked to leave suddenly.) They've consistently hired good teachers but can't or won't keep them. No one from the school contacted me when I notified them I was removing my children. This school had a good history in past years but in recent times it has not lived up to its potential. At this time, I would not recommend this school. Beware recent rosy reviews, evaluate the school for yourself if you are considering it.

Teachers, parents and administration collective efforts help to grow any school. Now TMS is growing very well. I like all teachers working hard and they are committed to Montessori Method. We are lucky to have AMI trained teachers. My children love their school and their teachers. They are learning. School is providing safe, loving,caring and healthy environment.
