The Montessori School Ratings & Reviews

The staff and teachers care deeply about every student. The focus is on character development, but a strong education and passion for learning is clearly evident

Very business and money-making oriented. A want-to-be-non-profit.o he leadership of the school doesn't have the children's best interest in mind (although they pretend that they do). Every child has a dollar amount attached to it.

My wife and I bumbled dumbly into The Montessori School and its system. We’ve since been thoroughly schooled, and absolutely won over.Our son spent 3 years at Richland, and we were thrilled with the little person his teachers — though they call themselves “guides” — enabled him to become. The worst thing about Richland is that the school ends after kindergarten.We’re north of Bedford, 45 minutes from the Kalamazoo campus, in decent weather. Making that drive roundtrip — five days a week, twice a day — seemed bonkers. We anguished over the decision. We talked to everyone. We visited schools. We debated giving our son up for adoption — kidding. We would never.The school, back in 2015, was in transition. Ok, tumult is nearer the truth. The longstanding head-of-school retired. Succession sucks for any organization, and especially for small ones. But the Board was steady and — after some trial, some error — they got all the pieces in place the summer we were finalizing our choice. Namely, they hired the amazing Ann(e)s: Ann Pilzner, Head-of-School; and Anne Thomas Wester, Lead Guide for lower elementary.That was nearly 3 years ago. In that time, the school — and our son’s experience of it — has been little short of stellar. So much so, we don’t begrudge making that drive. A number of studies show that few things are as critical to student achievement as an outstanding teacher. Or guide. All else — curricula, class size, funding, family and community involvement — pales.We have a wonderful dialogue with our son's teacher, the outstanding Anne Wester, and we’re in awe of her. Anne’s bright, funny, and disciplined without ever coming across as overbearing or uncaring. (I think it helps that she’s tall.) She gives the confident impression she’s doing exactly what she loves: encouraging your child to be better, and to do better, in a beautiful, difficult world.And while Anne’s constantly nudging your kid along an individual course, and safely, she does so with an appreciation — a love, really — of who your kid already is, never mind who or what they promise to become. In short, Anne Wester is a treasure. She makes all the difference. Your kid would be lucky to have her. When our son moves on from her class, after three full years in her close company, she will be dearly — but we hope not desperately — missed.

"Our daughter Amelia is entering her second year at the Richland Campus of The Montessori School. She loved her first year there (2014-2015), quietly absorbing new things every day. As with most kids it was very difficult to extract her daily school activities out of her, but we soon noticed how easily she took on new challenges and applied school lessons (activities) to situations she ran across at home. Evan at times advising us on ""This is how we do it at Montessori.""It is very difficult to put into words what a wonderful learning environment The Montessori School Provides. Observing a classroom at work is quite the treat. Small groups of kids helping each other, moving about the 'classroom' free to choose any activity or lesson they have been exposed to by their teacher. There is a quiet but strong energy that comes from the kids while working, just amazing. I really can't envision a better School to introduce our daughter that learning can be fun and cool."

Excellent approach to learning and discovering new experiences. The teachers are dedicated to adapting to every students needs. We have had only the best experience and look forward to the future as well.
