We love Geiger. Both of our children are thriving here.

I wish I could start all over and never subject my child to this horrible school environment. I have never seen so much bullying in my entire life. Bullying is a regular activity at this school. I thought there was suppose to be zero tolerance for bullying, however it seems that bullying is accepted to the point that they might as well praise it. It breaks my heart to see the kind of treatment that is accepted in this school. I was so excited for my child to go to this school, however it is nothing of what I expected. There is a high number of bullying incidences daily. However, the school will usually turn a blind eye at the situations. Also, I feel that there are certain clicks among the adults that are bullies to other parents, but excuse themselves and act like they are superior if you do not fit into their mold. These particular adults are close with the Principal. My child's self esteem is lowered everyday, because of the experiences at this school. Most days my child is scared to go to school, because of the constant stress of mistreatment in this environment. This Principal is the worst that I have every seen. This man does very well at pretending to care, however only truly cares if it fits his agenda. You may be fooled at first by his smile and and calmness. However, the more you get to know him, he says smart remarks, talks down at people who disagree with him, and intentionally will try to antagonize people while doing it in a calm condescending manner. There are some wonderful teachers at this school, however my child has a teacher who is rude and confrontational. If I could give advice about this school, it would to RUN!! (unless you are one of the kind of people that loves clicks and you act like you are better than everyone else, in that case then this is the school for you!)

The Montessori Method works so well for an active boy! The multi-age classroom and student directed "work cycle" has allowed our son to excel. He is challenged to stretch in areas that come easily and is supported in areas where he struggles. We are so thankful for this school and the Montessori program.

We absolutely LOVE this school! After two years, I really think my daughter is getting a fantastic education there. The Montessori method has allowed her to soar ahead at her pace and beautifully supports her individual academic needs. The teachers, staff, and parental community have a total hands-on approach. The principal, Paula Bond, is very involved and works tirelessly on continual improvements. We are so fortunate to have this Montessori school in our Tacoma public school system. I only wish and hope and pray that a Montessori option for middle school (and HS) will be available by the time my daughter needs it. Even without it, I think this style of learning, that promotes independent, motivated students, will have given her an edge that will translate over into a traditional classroom. Lastly, the newly constructed building is just the icing on this wonderful cake. What a gorgeous facility that seems to have been truly designed with Montessori learning in mind! I'd give this school a hundred stars, if I could.

Geiger is a fantastic option for famlies looking for more freedom and creativity in the classroom. We have had a terrific experience for over 3 grades and have experienced a superior teacher. I also really like the multi-age classroom. It has taught my son how to be a good leader and help his peer group out. The principle, Ms. Pond has a zero tolerance for bullying and it shows!!! I only hope my daughter will have a spot in two years.
