Primary Montessori Day School Reviews
Ugh! It looks like even after 2 more years in business, they still don't have a clue! The administration is terrible! It is a family-owned and family-operated business, so know where all your hard earned dollars are going. We got the sales pitch that montessori schooling might help my child advance in school. I was so surprised when my son tested below grade average in public schools! You'd think I'd get a heads up or something! Sniff around on the local boards and online reviews. Talk to former and current parents. You'll be stunned by the responses, I'm sure.
Beware! Our child attended Primary Montessori Day School and entered into public school a full year behind in reading, writing and math. On top of paying Primary's hefty tuition, we ended up having to pay for private tutoring! We thought that the small class size would mean that the teachers worked with the children individually. It was quite a surprise to learn from the tutor and her public school teachers that she lacked exposure to basics. Some kids may leave this school academically ahead but in our case our child graduated from Primary Montessori's first grade program without being able to read.
