Discovery Depot Montessori Reviews
Discovery Depot is a great school. My son is very happy here and cant wait to go to school everyday. We went on vacation and he cried when I told him we weren't going to school. I have also spent over 100 hours volunteering in this school. Every single staff member and teacher treats all students with respect.
My child attended this school for 2 years. They seemed very nice, great school. However, one day by accident I walked in on one of the teachers yelling at a couple of kids (3/4 year olds), my son was repeatly kicked, punched, and told to kill himself from a fellow student. That student was apparently being treated that way by his brother and taking it out on my son. When he tried to tell the teachers, they told him to stop being a tattle-tale. I called in advance for a doctor's appointment and because I had witnessed the teacher yelling at the 2 children, and said something about it, they didn't want me "dropping in" anymore. Which, again, I gave them notice... it shouldn't have been a problem. Then when I showed them that it was in their own book (about the open door policy), they said the rules had changed for the new book/year. Obviously, when my 4 year-old child is talking about suicide, that was enough for me.. I ripped him out right away. We never got to report anything officially on record because when I called to find out about making a report, I was told it wouldn't really hold much weight because I didn't have enough proof... So, just be careful. Like I said, it took us 2 years to stumble upon this by accident and the more we started probing the more we found out. Just because there doesn't seem to be anythings negative about this school doesn't mean nothing has happened! Be wary of this place!
