    "I wish I could give it a zero. Waste of time and money. My girl is thriving only now, after leaving, they took all the joy of learning out of her. Passive-aggressive teachers and staff will let you know what type of tutoring your child needs, but will not admit that they may be the problem to begin with. Teachers put a lot of pressure, materials learned do not fit the level of the students. Teachers yelled and shut the lights off if kids dared to speak during class (says my daughter), no clarity and visibility into the materials and levels of math and reading learned and required we had no idea where she is and where she should be. Terrible communication. They will accept many foreign students that arrive for a limited period of time without required testing, and many kids are disruptive they will not say anything if you donate money to the school (they do a good job soliciting you to do so.) My child was asked in her current school to name her favorite street in NYC and least favorite street. She wrote: My least favorite street is 85th Street . I asked why, she said because this is where MMS is. We are so glad that we pulled her out, some friends pulled out as well."

    "We are thrilled with this school! It is academically challenging while still being warm and nurturing. Our children are excited to go to school each day and ask if they can do and learn more. There are always complaints about schools but I cannot think of a better preschool/elementary school In New York City. This school is small so you feel like your voice is heard and your children will too. The Montessori curriculum (which we did not know about before stumbling upon this school) teaches kids to love learning. I could go on and on. This school is a gem."

    "I honestly cannot say enough about this wonderful little school because I feel as though our family stumbled upon the hidden jewel of the Upper West Side. The academics, focus on the arts and teaching staff are all impressive. I am amazed that my 7 year old is studying geometry that I didn't learn until high school and that when she was 3 she stopped in her tracks upon hearing music from The Nutcracker to say: "Peter Tchaikovsky wrote this". I could sing the academic praises from the rooftops, but really, the exmissions speak for themselves. Most of the graduating class ends up in top-tier middle and high schools. I find the parent community welcoming and close, something that has only enriched our experience and endeared the school to us even more. The retention rate of the staff is high, which is a great indicator of the competency of the administration. Bottom line is that this is a very special place, not one where my husband and I are seen as dollar signs but parents who are part of a very focused academic organization that cares about our child's future. I cannot say the same of the other schools that we are involved in in the city. I highly recommend MMS."

    "They could do better in selecting parents to talk to applying families. The parent the school put me in contact with told me it took months for her child to settle in and they were considering pulling the child out. That was not what one wants to hear when applying and totally put me off the school."

    "We feel very lucky to have landed at this school. My kids love it, the academics are excellent, and the families we have met are wonderful. While the curriculum presents plenty of challenge, there is also plenty of support and communication to help the kids continually grow and thrive. There is a true interest in social and emotional development as well as the hard skills. I am perplexed by some of the reviews here that talk about disruptive children... this is something that we have not encountered. In fact seeing the highly focused and engaged children in the classrooms is what drew us most to the school. Because of the Montessori philosophy, kids work in small groups at their own pace, so there is plenty of individual attention. We have been very happy, I just wish it went beyond 6th grade. However from everything I have seen and heard, the exmissions really are outstanding."
