Raintree is a haven for children and their families. The staff are very educated, compassionate and always eager to help. The head of the school is one of those, very rare, people who is always striving to make a difference. When you enter Raintree - you are part of a family. more

@Gracefully Patrician: Wow, I'm really 6/4/2012

@Gracefully Patrician: Wow, I'm really sorry for the bad experiences you & your friends have had! My son just finished primary and his teacher was AMI certified. She was great & my son is confident & well-rounded. Also his older siblings have very fond memories of their AMI & AMS certified teachers. Don't be afraid to talk with the staff about your food, diversity, & policy concerns because they are very personable. The great thing about an intimate private school is that the staff is more willing to work with you if any changes need to be made. Show the staff some love & respect. Let them know that they have your support. Do what's best for your children!!!!!!! Pros: null Cons: null more

Maria Montessori is spinning in her grave 3/13/2012

Even though they won't admit it, this school caters to special needs Caucasian children and their families. Shamefully not all teachers are certified in Montessori and only one has training in Special Education. The terrible food is prepared by a severely overweight person who obviously has no training or certification in the dietary needs of children. He plans the menu like a weed-smoker: heavy plates loaded with cheese constantly...YUCK! I bet the children & staff throw it away by the truckload! I feel so sorry for the teachers: they are overworked, underpaid and look so exhausted whenever I see them. Teaching assistants quit every year and are replaced by people who don't care to invest in the 3-year program. I have heard horrible things around town about teachers who lose assistants ever year, so it's not entirely fault of the assistant who quits! OMG...don't get me started on the summer camp...an absolute waste of money and time. Many of us pulled out our children early this past summer and will NOT return! One thing about this small town is that people "talk," there are no secrets. Pros: null Cons: null more
