professionalmama: The teachers we had were excellent, the facilities were average, and the communication between the parents and school staff left much to be desired (and often bordered on hostile). The head of school gets along just fine with the parents until they ask the wrong questions, then you see what happens when a school believes they have no competition.
The year we spent there was stressful, full of drama and quite unpleasant. The head of school does not help the situation by treating some of the parents with disrespect, and taking absolutely no responsibility for things under the school's control. Parents that had the unfortunate luck to end up on her "black list" ( of which there were quite a few) ended up paying a lot of money to be treated like dirt, needless to say we were only 1 of MANY families that did not return to the school the next year.
They are not accredited or affiliated with any major Montessori organization such as AMI or AMS, this information is available on their websites. This should have been a big red flag to us, shame on us for ignoring it.
