    "I attended this school 1st-8th grade. I can honestly say it was an absolutely terrible experience. My fellow classmates were cruel and relentless and the teachers and principal did nothing about it, even though it was brought to their attention several times. In fact, I had a few teachers repeatedly treat me terribly as well with comments and ridicule. Out of 8 teachers, I can only say something nice about 2 of them. If you want your child to be in a positive environment, do not send them here."

    "Ruffing Montessori is a good school but your experience will depend on what teacher you are assigned. My child attended this school and it was a nightmare. His teacher repeatedly made culturally insensitive remarks during our conferences and the class environment was very physical. I spoke to the teacher repeatedly about the physical culture of the class and she assured me it would get better but it never did. Also, my child told me she pointed her finger in his face and yelled at him. I sent her an email stating what my child told me and asked for clarification she did not respond. I withdrew my child out of the school. I am sure this is a good school but even good schools can have bad teachers. If you allow your child to attend a class directed by D. Liston you are doing him/her a disservice."

    "Excellent school! My daughter attended from 3 yrs old until 7th grade when we moved far east in Ohio. She now attends a public high school and has adapted wonderfully, academic and socially. As other reviews have stated, Ruffing teaches children what they need to know for the real world in addition to the academic studies. The studies let the child advance at their own pace and gifted children are not held back others that may need more attention. Although it was a bit of a financial strain for my family, I am so glad I made the decision and commitment for her to attend Ruffing."

    "I have two children at Ruffing and am extremely pleased. My younger child actually went there first in Pre-K and I loved it so much I moved my daughter there in the 4th grade. She is more challenged at Ruffing that at any other school she's been at. I love that she is learning to motivate herself and organize her time when doing her schoolwork. I also love the family atmosphere and the wonderful teachers. I highly recommend Ruffing Montessori!!"
