Why Parents Love Our School
Our family has had many positive experiences with Monticello. Each child is shown kindness and respect, I think the teachers are devoted, the special education programs have been very competent, and the administrator and staff are amazing. I am so grateful our daughter has had the opportunity to go to this school.
Our child‘s teacher has shown much interest in our child and has allowed her to perform her dance routine for the class. She is very observant and watches to see what is best for each child.
I just love that the admistitrator is so involved, always out there with the kids when they get out of school.
Because the Montessori method is the best way for my child to learn and he has progressed in maturity and wants to be at school where he did not want to go to the other school. He receives all the help that is required and necessary.
Good teacher/student ratio, small family like environment, administrator, non-traditional teaching philosophy, children are treated with respect.
I knew my kids needed something different than the standard public education. I had heard great things from a friend about Montessori so when I learned about a free charter school using Montessori method, I jumped at the chance to enroll them. We aren’t rich enough for a private school and homeschooling would have been my only other option.
There was an opening and now it’s turned into so much more.
When we first started at the school, we were impressed by the teachers we met, and by the way the classrooms were more “free” to explore. We liked the hands on approach to lessons, and the cooking, and that the kids were expected to have a job in the classroom that they were responsible for.
I love the Montessori platform and have always known that it would be the best fit for my child and their learning style as well as their personality. It is a hands on approach to learning that will allow a child to go at their pace and thrive as well as give them the ability to critically think of ways to improve. I have seen this in my child‘s time at Monticello and look forward to seeing more of these positive improvements throughout the time my child is at this school.
