Washington Montessori Ratings & Reviews

WMPCS is both good and bad. The GOOD: Teachers and staff are generally very caring and it is a kind, safe little community. It is small enough that most of the students know one another and the kids grow up together. Teachers do a very good job of teaching reading throughout most grades (just look at their EOG scores). The classrooms in the upper and lower elementary building are very nice. Perhaps most importantly, they teach students to be empathetic, kind, and courteous. The BAD: The 'No Violence Policy', while good in theory, places permanent marks on their student's state school record frequently for minor infractions that could best be dealt with by teachers during the school day. For instance, if your kindergartner and his friend push each other in line, even a little and without malicious intent, he/she will be automatically suspended for the remainder of that day and the next if you do not pick them up by 11:45. There is no in-school suspension option/after school detention/principals office. It is an automatic suspension with mark on the child's permanent record (regardless of age). This includes if the incident is not observed by a teacher but rather reported by another student, which is problematic in its own right. By its very nature, this policy is almost discriminatory towards young boys (5-7 years old) who are energetic and almost always the ones who receive suspensions. A student who was verbally cruel to another would likely disciplined, but doubtfully suspended despite actually doing something more malicious than common boy horseplay. Also, this school seems to almost teach 'tattle telling'. There is a big difference between tattle telling and reporting. The school's math and science EOG scores are, frankly, terrible. The school attests that the EOG math scores do not reflect their student's actual math understanding. I have yet to fully buy into this. They are currently focusing heavily on math throughout the grades trying to correct this. Hopefully, the scores will improve. I do think there is some value into the conceptual way that they teach math. There is also a lack of racial diversity at this school and students tend to be of a similar 'type'.The mixed age classrooms are both good or bad, depending on the child. They may learn things from older children earlier than you anticipated.

Great school! Students are taught character education along with math, reading, science, cultural studies, geography, music and many subjects my child did not have at local schools. Information on this site is outdated - they opened a high school 3 years ago. I cannot wait until my child reaches high school here!

I think this is an exceptional school especially compared to most of the public schools in this area. The kids are taught not just how to read, write, etc but life skills. I wouldn't want my children anywhere else :)

The atmosphere of this school was awesome through the 2013-2014 school year. After that new dual administration took over and they have been pushing a strong Christian agenda. There are kids who are from different religious backgrounds as well as homosexual kids/teens that are held to stricter rules and harsher punishments than their "Christian" peers simply because they don't meet the administration's standards. They have teachers who push the Christian religion in class and talk down other beliefs. This is not the way a PUBLIC Charter School should behave.

I love this school. I have three children here at three different levels. The administration and staff are passionate about teaching Montessori. The schools academics are rich. My children are becoming independent learners and thinkers. My children's emotional and social needs are nurtured. They are becoming problem solvers.They are gaining a sense of community and world awareness. This school teaches the whole child.
