The Spring School Reviews

Needs a lot of work

By a Parent on

This school needs a lot of work. Class sizes are too big for only two teachers. They give children highly processed snacks which does not go with the Montessori philosophy at all. Steppingstones teachers are wonderful and my older kids are learning a lot. That is probably the only reason that my kids are still there. There is not enough communication with parents, and a friend of mind told me the administration did not like it when she walked into the school one day.  

By a Parent on

This school's mission/philosophy is phony.  They do not let your child learn at his/her own pace unless they are slower than his own age group.  The curriculum is stiffling and not challenging to any average-bright child.  Any feedback to the Teachers/Principal falls on deaf ears.  Teachers are unfriendly and superficial.  They will not provide warmth or security to your child.  There are many better schools in Bergen County than Spring that's more "bang for your buck".  I am very disappointed that my child wasted one year at this school.  

By a Parent on

I would not recommend this school to any parent for any reason. My child is not attending this year because of the lack of parent input and collaboration and very poor communication that exists with the Principal/Director/Owner.  There are many wonderful preschools in Bergen County that provide an excellent education. Go elsewhere!

Great School. Faculty and especially the director are  really dedicated to helping their students. Academic standards are very high but they make it easy for the student to follow.
Environment is comfortable it is absolutely A+ education.
Any thing to improve, yes --it looks a bit disorganized --but I can see why --they are so busy organizing the important things such as class curriculum, content and providing feedback to students.  I am delighted to choose this school. Thank you Ms. Debbie.
