    "Don't make the same mistake I did and overlook the clear examples of bullying I saw while visiting the school. I dismissed obvious cliques formed in preschool because of the reputation and school setting. In certain classes, mean girls rule. Moms at playdates actually tell their 5-year-old not to eat too much because they will get fat. Montessori education only works if the parents and teachers are onboard to treat each other kindly. This is just not the case here."

    "Probably the worst school this side of the lake. Long overdue for a new director, ineffective "teaching", and bullying by the teachers. The other students and parents are nice, it's the administration that is lacking. Be prepared to supplement your child's education with tutoring or having to hold him/her back once you get out in the academic world. This school scores terribly on standardized testing and doesn't seem to care. Blaming Montessori is not the real answer there are other montessoris that score well."

    "I am a former teacher from WhiteRock, who taught in the Pre-School for 4 years. After working in several Montessori schools in Dallas and North Carolina and England, I feel I need to comment. WhiteRock is the most professional school I have worked out, out of 20 years teaching experience. Contrary to several comments that the teachers training is lacking - I found that the teachers at WhiteRock had more prior academic training (degrees especially) and a great wealth of Montessori qualifications. Montessori is not patented, so many schools can say they are Montessori, but they are not - WhiteRock is an authentic Montessori environment. It is also the only Montessori school I have worked in where the Director observes the teachers regularly, assess them and is fully aware of what is going on in the classrooms and has a daily hand in situations that may occur. I had never witnessed any bullying - on the contrary, it was a most peaceful and exemplary school, always leading the children by example."

    "MY SCHOOL ROCKS!!!! I am currently an eighth grader at White Rock Montessori, and the school is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I have gone there for eleven years and my sister went for eleven years before me. I thoroughly enjoy going to school every day and love my teachers. There has never been any staffing issues, and the vast majority of the kids love their teachers. Not only do we have amazing programs (just one example: BBBS- where the older kids get a preschool buddy and get to play with them once a month) we have amazing assignments. I have never said I don't want to go to school in the morning except when I feel bad. Do not listen to those people who say our school is bad- they have never gone. And by the way, our Principal is amazing, we all love her. Hippy chicken school all the way!"

    "The grounds and facility are beautiful, however the director is cold and judgmental. The pre-K teachers vary greatly."
