Compass Montessori - Wheat Ridge Charter School Reviews

Worst decision we ever made

By a Parent on

Sending our children here.  The teachers are smug and condescending and since they have three grades together, our second grader was so bored doing "the same work as last year" we pulled her out!  This school caters towards the helicopter parent so if you are insanely involved in ever aspect of your child's life, it will be a good fit but while they learn how to go bowling and do yoga, the instruction in math, reading and writing will be limited.

My children attend Compass Montesorri, and we LOVE this school. Love see my children take charge of their own education. 5 stars all the way.
