Childrens Meeting House Reviews
Terrific school in a great environment
I have three children at Children's Meeting House (CMH) ranging from pre-school to 5th grade, and I can't imagine a better environment for young children to learn and grow academically, socially and emotionally. The teachers are fantastic at applying the Montesorri method to deliver core educational lessons while building independence and confidence in the students. They are also very good at tailoring "works" to keep all students challenged and progressing at appropriate levels.
I've been most impressed by the standardized testing scores CMH students regularly achieve. CMH students test many grades above their level in essentially every subject.
CMH students also benefit from a rural setting that allows for a level of outdoor exploration and learning that is hard to find at other schools.
I know I made (and continue to make!) the right choice for my children with CMH!
A school that inspires a joy for learning
This gem of a school truly fosters a passion for learning. We have been part of the CMH community for five years and couldn’t be more pleased with the education our daughters are receiving, As a parent it thrills me when my daughters tell me what an “awesome” day they had at school. Whether it’s introducing a new math work or looking for fossils on a creek walk, the teachers at CMH know how to nurture, inspire and challenge each student to reach their full potential. I’ve enjoyed watching my children gain the self-confidence and critical thinking skills they’ll need to become true independent thinkers.
Amazing School, Exceptional Teachers and Setting
Children's Meeting House is a wonderful school. The teachers are exceptional and genuinely attentive to each child, and the Montessori philosophy practiced here ensures our children are prepared to be active, capable, autonomous, empathetic adults. Our children also enjoy the natural setting of the school, which allows for weekly nature hikes, bird watching, recess under the trees, and science experiments in the wild.
This school is academically inept. My 2d grader, who is an advanced reader had spelling words of fly, cry, sky. When I asked the teacher if these words were too easy via email, neither teacher responded. When asked again in person, one teacher responded that she only could respond to emails on Sunday and the other teacher said she asked my daughter to tell her if *she* thought the words are too easy. So much for the value of having a teacher, more like having a maladjusted babysitter.
This school has such communication challenges it's not even funny. Do not consider sending your kids to it unless you enjoy dealing with depressed kids.
