This school is what TRUE Montessori is all about! Montessori Country Day School provides an environment like no other. I am so impressed with the loyalty of the teachers and the extremely low teacher to children ratios. The children truly get the individual attention that is needed, as do the parents! Parents receive emails and updates from the teachers on how their child/ children are doing and how they can be more involved. The owners are so friendly and willing to be flexible in any way they can. You can not find that kind of attention ANYWHERE else. Trust me, I have looked! This private school has a wonderful Mommy Montessori Program, and they provide a twos program all the way up to fifth grade. They also have the best enrichment activities such as spanish, art, drama, yoga, sports, dance, music, and so much more! Anyone who would pass up the opportunity to visit this beautiful school would be passing up an opportunity for their child to have a brighter future.
Pros: Teachers (average 7 years tenure), Curriculum, Enrichment activities, Owners, Environment, low student-teacher ratios, 99% of students reading above grade level, Individualized Academic Instruction, Flexibility, for all ages, amazing parent involvement, and a true closeness and friendship with staff as well as parents that is hard to come across!
Cons: I wish this school didn't stop at fifth grade and they could continue through high school.
