About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Montessori Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Montessori Charter School had 17 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Wisconsin average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Montessori Charter School Reviews
We found, after sending two children to CV Montessori school that every child learns very differently. This school is not suited for teaching every child, nor are the teachers willing to discuss the possibility that children learn various ways. Some children are able to learn through traditional teaching methods easier than learning at their own pace. Some children advance at their own pace and other's stay behind at their own pace. We found the teachers and principal to be extremely unresponsive to our concerns and the low state test results, and have moved our children to another school.
The Montessori teaching method offers the opportunity for all students to advance at their own pace, giving students the initiate to WANT to learn; get the next "presentation" and move ahead. They learn respect (for one another and for their surrounding), responsibility, and to work independently. This is a wonderful learning atmosphere and experience for them. Learning the basics of geometry from the git-go, along with other subjects they will face in later years, prepares them well for middle and high school years and beyond.
