Forest Bluff School Ratings & Reviews

Forest Bluff Montessori school is defined by their fidelity to the Montessori method, a relationship based administration model, and family centered school culture. Our boys, ages 2, 6 & 9 are delighted to be attending school for the first time this year. Our transition from homeschooling for nearly a decade, to Montessori school, has been just the right fit. What a wonderful time they have had getting to know their classmates and teachers. We look forward to hearing stories about all they are learning and experiencing at Forest Bluff every evening. Our children’s hearts are full and their spirits fed! The wisdom and experience of their teachers in tandem with the Montessori approach, inspires daily investigations that sparks desire, creativity, and awe. Their capacity to wonder, followed by a desire to research and share their findings, has been a joy to witness. Our homeschooling years were a treasure for which I am grateful, but one big change has taken place since we started at Forest Bluff. Our middle son is smiling every day. He has a light in his eyes that I was yearning to help him share. I am so thankful that he has gained confidence and really started to let his light shine. The administration and staff at Forest Bluff recognize the importance of family time and create a school culture that support the parent & child relationship through Montessori From the Start classes, timely book discussions, and an invaluable series of parenting lectures. These opportunities help parents develop connected relationships with their children, with a multitude of resources and support built right into the school environment. Forest Bluff Montessori is AMAZING!

We have three children who attended Forest Bluff and are now college students, and one a junior in high school. They are remarkably productive people focused on making an impact in the world. Forest Bluff developed a foundation in them of genuine goodness and genuine interest in all people.At Forest Bluff the classroom was a place where learning was interesting and was the focal point. The relationships of the children were centered around solving a math problem together, researching a painter, or putting sentences together in the appropriate way. They bonded over the learning and the satisfaction in getting something right. There was no focus on one’s clothing, where one was coming from in the morning, or whether they would be included in a weekend event. They were equals in their own world of learning, and their bonds were deep. When our children left that beautiful world, they sought out other students who were curious learners and contributors. When one of my children was asked by her college counselor what type of college she wanted to attend, she thought for a moment and then said, “I really just want to go to a college where other students enjoy learning—a school that is the college version of my Montessori school.” In the graduates you will find so many interesting professions—researchers, doctors, authors, and bankers. They are happy, contributors, and wonderful to be around. Our children’s experience and education at Forest Bluff was a gift.

"My wife and I often comment to each other how fortunate we are to have found Forest Bluff when our oldest child was still a toddler. Being a part of the Forest Bluff community for the past seven years has been invaluable with regard to how it has shaped our parenting philosophy. Our children are happy, well-adjusted, and kind. They know their school is ""different"" and—even at their relatively young ages—appreciate that their learning is primarily self-driven and motivated by their own curiosities and passions, rather than a pre-determined sequence of topics. For anyone who may question the efficacy of the Montessori approach in preparing children for later schooling, both of our children are reading above grade level, have a strong foundation of mathematical concepts, and are writing (in cursive) and presenting multi-page reports on topics of their choice. In short, my kids are fully engaged at school; they are not on iPads, they are not doing worksheets, they are not spending endless hours on standardized assessments. Montessori is definitely a paradigm shift from current trends in education, one that I believe is better preparing children to be adaptable and innovative--skills they will most definitely need as they enter the ever-changing workforce."

Forest Bluff has been a wonderful place for all three of my children to grow and learn. My older two are full time students, while my infant has benefitted from attending the parent-child series with me. I especially like the support the school offers to parents through optional seminars, book discussions, and a lending library of books and Montessori materials.

"Our 3 yo daughter just began in the primary program at Forest Bluff. I discovered the school after reading ""Montessori from the Start: The Child at Home, from Birth to Age Three"" by Paula Polk Lillard and Lynn Lillard Jessen. When I realized that these experts where so close to my home I had to schedule a tour. It started with a phone call, which lasted for 45 minutes with Lynn Jessen (one of the authors of the aforementioned book). Other Montessori schools spent 5 minutes answering my questions and concerns. I toured four other Montessori schools in the area, and they did spend way more than 5 minutes on the tour, however this was the purest following of Maria Montessori's work that I could find. The school not only educates the students, but the parents too. I have attended book groups and talks on applying Montessori principals into your home, which have been so helpful. The staff were so thoughtful about gradually introducing my daughter to school, starting with just an hour, then the next day 90 minutes, and they built it up to the 3 hours as she was ready. Also the staff are ready to help when your child is melting down. On day four of starting school my daughter didn't want to go into the classroom and Lynn saw me struggling and she quietly coached me to get her into the room quickly and walk away. My daughter was fine the minute she steeped into the classroom. But my prolonging things didn't help her, which I couldn't see in the thick of it. Finally, I have found that this school is also helpful in finding other consciously minded parents. I have discovered parents who are thoughtful about limiting or totally eliminating screen time to their children, especially their young children. So far the parents have been inclusive and polite. Plus, I love the fact that it is diverse in ethnicity and culture, as I hear many different accents from around the world from many of the parents. Basically, from staff to parents, this school feels like the type of community that I want my child to learn and grow into a conscious, worldly and thoughtful woman."
