Bowie Montessori Childrens House Reviews
The family environment, accessibility of teachers, and small class sizes has given my son self-esteem and the support he needed to feel a part of a whole community that thinks outside the box just as he does.
We are committed to the Montessori philosophy. We transferred our daughter to Bowie three years ago when our daughter's former Montessori school ended at 3rd grade. She is in 6th grade now. We travel from Montgomery County to go to Bowie and are impressed with Bowie. She has a late birthday and is always one of the youngest students in her class. At Bowie, she receives one on one reading and math intervention. Her teacher is very qualified and imaginative. She has phy ed, art, and drama. Bowie just added a science lab for the upper elementary class. Bowie does optional academic and speech assessments in the fall and regular standardized testing in the spring. The upper elementary school receives SAT prep. We plan to keep our daughter at Bowie through middle school.
Bowie has great after school programs including a STEM club, drama lessons, and instrumental music lessons. There are opportunities for parent involvement ie., chaperoning field trips and parent seminars. Teachers and administrators are available for parent conferences. While there was some teacher turn over in the lower grades last year, my daughter has had the same teacher for the past three years.
