    "We had a fabulous teacher for the first four years (K-3rd), but she moved on so I can't even recommend this school for those of you who may have a K-3rd grade student. My experience was that I brought to the Dean of Student's attention that my child felt ignored and he (after two calls and an email) responded that he would talk to my child about it, which he never did. In a community the prides itself in giving children a voice this is very concerning. It is also disturbing that after promoting FHM, volunteering and giving to FHM to learn that if you have a problem they could careless."

    "FHM has been the best possible school for our family. My children are truly loved, respected, and understood. The staff are amazing - from admin to the teachers to the special Ed dept. I am both thrilled and honored to be a part of such an amazing community."

    "Been very happy with FHM. We weren't sure if this would be the best fit for our profoundly gifted child, but so far it's been really great. Teachers and staff have been very caring and accommodating, making sure our child is able to explore and learn at her level. She is being challenged and encouraged in a supportive and loving environment. Anytime I've had questions or concerns, they are dealt with promptly and with genuine interest and care. The relaxed environment at FHM allows the students to foster a love of learning; not fear, stress and anxiety over performance and grades."

    "IF you are considering enrolling your child or applying for employment at Free Horizon Montessori......RUN! Run for your life and don't turn back! The principal is extremely passive, does not have leadership experience or skills and hides behind bureaucracy. The rest of the staff is so intimidated by the principal's controlling nature, they are afraid to take a stand about anything. The administration does not have any experience or knowledge as to how run a school effectively, kindly or collaboratively. The staff turnover is extremely high which allows for incompetent teachers to remain in their positions as it seems as if the goal is to have "a body" in the position. Your children will suffer and will not receive an education that will prepare them for the future."

    "Pros: Free Horizon Montessori (FHM) engages the individual child on a journey of learning - the teachers are really good at meeting the child where they are at both intellectually and socially. My child's teacher last year spoke of how each child in the classroom has a "big work" for the year - my child's was "sitting still long enough to complete an assignment". The teacher wasn't upset or worried about my child's wandering mind or body - she simply, and gently, worked every day to help my daughter be a bit more independent. Cons - While the turn over at FHM is low for a charter school, families and teachers leave the school more often than they would a neighborhood school because people have choice."
