Community Montessori School Reviews
Love it here!
Being at Community Montessori School for many years, I absolutely love it! My child has excelled greatly over the years here and is not only doing fantastic, but loves it as well! I couldn't be more pleased with the school and staff. A few months back, a teacher was fired from the school and it is unbelievable how much better the environment has become now that the teacher and all of those negative parents (followers) who wanted to associate with him, who seem to think it's only about them and their opinions, are gone. Our family couldn't be happier at CMS!
Love this place!
Love this school! They started more than 40 years ago and are still going strong. My family absolutely loves it here and would recommend it to everyone! If you really want to learn more about this wonderful place, just go and visit and you can see for yourself
I am sad to post this negative review of Community Montessori School. Unfortunately, my child not only did NOT progress at CMS, but scores on the CATs test and qualitative measures indicate she has actually regressed in language arts, mathematics, and social studies over a 2-year period. In 4th grade, when she entered CMS, her math score was in the 70th percentile (the 6.4 grade level). At the end of 6th grade, the score was in the 39th (the 6.2 grade level). Similar drops were evident in language arts and social studies. Standardized measures don't capture a child's entire educational experience, but they DO measure attainment of basic skills. These drops are horrifying.
Her current 7th-grade teachers can tell she missed huge chunks of 6th-grade material. Her social studies teacher asked me today if she had social studies at her previous school. While enrolled, CMS gave only positive comments and the best exemplars of what I thought was her independent work. In the end, my child’s teacher could not tell me what skills she had, was missing, or what she had done to teach. Please do research before making the mistake I did. Talk to people who have been at this school or the dozens who left. Do not listen to the rhetoric on teaching "the whole child." Those words should never be used as an excuse to dismiss a child's development of critical skills.
