    "This is a great Montessori school. Students are more self-directed here and that will be a blessing and a curse. You might have to supplement the academics to keep on track, so I would budget some funds for that. Talk to your kid often, because they are still developing the school and your feedback is all they need to help your kid get ready for life. The diversity, safety and culture are really great. Everybody is having fun and has a love of learning. Anytime I have raised any concern with the school, the issue got resolved. They do have some growing pains, because they are doing something rare and evolving here, so be involved. This is a majority "disadvantaged kid" school and academic scores reflect that. But this is not a place where disadvantaged = troubled. These are great kids, teachers, administrators and parents who all care about your kid. Why would you want to go anywhere else?"

    "There are many teachers who are dedicated to their jobs and helping students succeed which is a great quality of this school. Although some administrators have a bad attitude the brilliant teachers make up for that which helps my plan to successfully graduate and move onto college."

    "My experience at Yonkers Montessori Academy has its Pros and Cons. One of the pros is has small community where everyone knows each other and it's like a family. There is no bullying which makes the school very comfortable. The Cons is the school added a high school which is good but it's lack science equipment and it's just really small in general. The teachers try their best and have a great relationship with the students which is great. Overall its a new school that has some flaws but over time it will become better"

    "The teachers are helpful and sweet but they don't play around when it comes to academics. I came to YMA in seventh grade and didn't have a very hard time making friends. Even though YMA was mark twain back then and had a really bad reputation they are making it better. Everyone just had a smooth transition into middle school or high school."

    "My experience is that the teachers are very hard working. They are knowledgeable and the teachers that accompanied my son on the trips took care of the students as if they were their own children. They are available during their lunch break for the most part."
