My son has been attending Montessori Prep since Pre-K. Like all schools, there are great teachers and not so great. Overall it's clear that the teachers care and there is consistency. My only complaint is the minimal technology they have.
Kindergarten class is too big. The teachers were not able to address every child’s needs; therefore many kids were not prepared for the first grade and the news that your child is not ready for the first grade the parents learn just before the graduation date. I send my child to the first grade to Pride Elementary were they just confirm that he is not on the level were he supposed to be. We have another student from Montessori Prep in my son’s class with the same problem. In my opinion, kindergarten in a public school will prepare your child much better to the first grade then Montessori Prep due to much smaller class and common core activities that address requirements and child ability.
