Beddow School - Waldorf Campus Reviews

By , a Parent on

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.

If you are reading these reviews about The Beddow School, please be aware that a former parent or former teacher has been engaged in a smear campaign against this school for the past two years that borders on cyber bullying.  The statements in these reviews are patently false and defamatory in nature.  The writer of these reviews has had no contact with the school for the past two years.  The nature of these attacks appears to be intended to retaliate against the school to negatively affect the continued operation of the school and deprive future students of the opportunity to have an excellent education.  The totality of the remarks against the school appears to meet the legal definition of defamation.  As a parent of two students at this school, I highly recommend you go see the school for yourself.  The staff, children, and parents at this school form a warm community which fosters growth and development in the children.  My children thrive in this nurturing environment.  The Montessori curriculum at The Beddow School provides a foundation to last a lifetime, which is a nice alternative to other daycare programs.

The teachers at Beddow School 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 has no competition and think they are "the only game in town".  

Fortunately that is no longer the case, and we had the pleasure of attending another Montessori school not too far away that had none of the issues Beddow has.

Things have taken a nosedive at this school, and the year we spent there was stressful and 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.

The teachers at Beddow School are ok but administration is not courteous, in fact very rude.

By a Parent on

I had the opportunity of having the asst. administrator speak curtly to me for no apparent reason after I had to wait a very long time to be let in to pick up my child recently. It's a shame b/c the teachers at Beddow School are great and very personable.
