Mountain View Montessori School Ratings & Reviews

We are so grateful for the dedication of the teachers and staff at this school. If you're a parent that wants to provide the best possible education and opportunity for your child(ren) to excel not just mentally, but emotionally and physically you should take the time to consider a Montessori education. However, this is not a school that you can expect to raise your children for you or eliminate any possible hardship. This is not a private school for the sake of private school. As a parent enrolling your child(ren) there is a clear expectation that you are willing to participate in their education, their development, and their emotional growth. The school goes above and beyond in providing opportunities for parents to learn about the Montessori method and even provides parent education courses on positive discipline; educating parents on how to best handle their child's planes of development. It is a non-profit school and therefore they make consistent effort to raise funds for the financial aid program, school improvements and continuing education for their staff. That effort also helps to keep tuition costs down. The children work within their classrooms to raise funds for special projects and trips. This work also builds their character and provides financial education; budgeting, costs/expenses of materials, net vs. gross profit etc. We initially enrolled our child in the primary program and at that time, decided we would reevaluate our decision prior to committing to the lower elementary program. We attended the positive discipline for primary parents education course, taught by the head of the school. We attended the Montessori Education workshop and participated in as many school events as possible. Then we attended Journey & Discovery - that sealed the deal! Interacting with the materials and witnessing the math and science lessons essentially blew my husband's mind. We both walked away from that experience confident that a Montessori education, and especially one from Mountain View Montessori, would be the very best option for our child. The countless hours that the administration, staff and faculty spend helping the students and their families is awe inspiring. Maria Montessori believed that a child is an individual, who must not be shaped but who must shape himself. Such a basic idea but also truly revolutionary.

This school is exceptional. Everyday we are thankful that we brought both our children here starting at age 3. Our children are confident, kind, compassionate and mannerly. They are able to speak in front of others easily. My son is now in high school and has a 4.0 and is enrolled in several AP classes and in the STEM program. My daughter is in 8th grade, her final year at Mountain View and is completely engaged in learning.

My son has been at this school since he was 4, it's the best decision we made for his education and personal development. This school is much more than a school, it is a community that supports my child and my family. They offer many opportunities for parent education. I have learned so much myself and am grateful for the support. The more involved I become with the school, the more respect I have for it and the important work they do at MVM. This school has done an amazing job of giving my son a well rounded education, preparing him for success in high school, and developing his character.

At least 5 other parents of students confided in me that they will not be attending the school next year due to the school's overemphasis on the parents' overarching responsibility in their child's school performance. The school's AMA accreditation is the only attractive thing about the school, but parents will be disenchanted once they realize that the benefits of a Montessori education are null and void if they don't have a compassionate group of adults caring for their kids. The head of the school seems like a nice, but proud woman. Unfortunately, pride prevents people from making any necessary improvements they need to keep their business competitive. Keeping the status quo, will only ensure more parents don't return, and then the school will really need to focus on their finances.

There is a cultish environment in this school. The head of the school is a bully and unwilling to hear any critique at all. My son was shamed by his novice teacher. My son is enthusiastic about learning and school until he has to deal with the punishing authoritarian culture. I blame the head of school.
