    "The grounds, the other families and children, and most of the teachers here are really wonderful, but that didn't make up for the problems we eventually had (and other families have had as well). My child was happy here the first few years so the very serious systemic problems were originally masked by those things. There are mysterious staff disappearances (firings?) without warning or explanation (and after they get your deposit money). I never thought much of this until something very troubling happened to my child there. The reaction from the administrator was not with concern to my child at all, but rather blame, finger-pointing at me and my child, and accusations of lying (after years with no complaints or issues to or about the school). I believe it may be like another poster said, a product of a family business that is too insular to realize huge flaws that hurt students in their approach."

    "Both of our children have attended Cedars since primary level. They are now in upper and lower elementary. We absolutely love Cedars and the education that our children are pursuing there. The physical environment is amazing and provides such a unique setting for learning and growth. The staff and administration are truly committed to the Montessori way and consciously create an environment that provides the right balance of structure and freedom. Both of our children have thrived in that environment, developing a genuine love for science, math and literature. The community of children is exceptional -- I've been amazed at the deep level of care and support that classmates demonstrate for each other."

    "While it is true that the school encourages the students to handle their conflicts privately, this is a predictable corollary to an environment where each child sets an accomplishes their works. My son's class is comprised of highly dissimilar individuals who are well on their way to developing the skills they will need to successfully identify and complete the studies that interest them most. The 'Lord of the Flies' analogy is apt, but my son's class seems far more intent on building something together rather than excluding anyone. The work is hard, the educational theory is solid, the staff is committed and the kids can look you in the eye and have a conversation. We are happy here."

    "Friendly school community, incredible outdoor environment-- my son is thriving here! In addition to solving cube root problems & writing his own novel, my 5th grader really enjoys planning the garden, planting & harvesting the vegetables & trying new recipes. Every day is an adventure in learning."

    "Hardly a Montessori environment. i agree with the previous review, it is more of a daycare, with a Lord of the Flies twist. The administration caters to a select group of 'in' parents; if you fall outside of that group expect your child to be treated unfairly and with little respect. Recess? Expect little supervision. Children are given few basic playground accessories to entertain themselves, so in the absence of having a ball to toss around, they choose to throw sticks and rocks. We made the mistake of trying to make things work, trying different classrooms and teachers, and it went from barely adequate to horrible the last year. No communication from the teacher - ZERO. No response to emails, no given phone number. No updates on progress. Our child did NOTHING for two months, and we were never notified, nor did the teacher address the issue. Every behavioral discussion, which were frequent given the horrible environment our child was subjected to, was handled at the director level. The one meeting that included the teacher resulted in said teacher walking out of the discussion. Apparently it's a privilege to pay tuition to this school. My only regret is not leaving sooner."
