    "The school has a good academic base, however, its management is lacking direction. The school is scattered around several buildings, each run at the teacher's will -there are no standards of any kind. If you have questions about any teacher's style or approach, the school Director's solution is to offer you to move your child to another class/building, hence, never addressing the issues. Also, the school buildings are obsolete at best, they are in need of a lot of improvement -starting with new paint on the walls, air conditioning and meeting basic needs such as proper bathroom facilities for the children in their main building. We decided to leave the school to a more structured, appropriate learning environment, as many others have. If the school wants to retain students or attract new ones, the owners should seriously consider investing in it. The school sign says it all."

    "Great teachers, but those who run the school are out of touch with the parents. As a parent it frustrating to find out that teachers are constantly being moved around between the various classrooms. One of the reasons that we pay the money for OMS is that we view it as a nurturing program with a wonderful staff. I've always felt as though classroom consistency is paramount which is why a rotating door of different personal (year after year) is very concerning. I now hear that they've cancelled the infant program. This was one of the biggest draws in sending my children to OMS. Doing so is completely short sighted and will impact enrollment for years to come. My wife and I trusted those involved with the program which is why we chose this school and continued to send our kids through the system. It's a shame to hear that it has ended. My advice...incorporate reviews from the parents (teacher, school and administration reviews) at that end of the year. This way you will have a better understanding of deficiencies as well as strengths from a parents perspective. We will help to paint an accurate picture of what we love about OMS and what should change."

    "The fact that the teachers are all so extraordinary and willing to go the extra mile tells me a lot about the administration's ability to select teachers. I have always been pleased any time I have had interactions and could not be happier with what the school has done for my children."

    "Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation we feel for Marge and the entire staff at the Carmel Montessori School. Our experience with our son was so positive that there was no question our daughter would go there as well. It wasn't until our son was in the 2nd grade before the work caught up to where he was when he left Marge's class. Both children were always so happy to go to school there and we never had a concern about their well-being. We knew they were in the most professional yet nurturing environment, and will always cherish our memories of these years."

    "Well, having sent my son and daughter to Our Montessori School and being so impressed with the teachers, that my children are sending their children to OMS . The teachers are truly caring ,and not only the teachers but the administration, REALLY ,do care ,the students are NOT numbers but, Laura ,Nancy ,Alex . They receive much more than book knowledge they are taught to care about each other ,taught to care about always doing the right thing. they learn by example from teachers who have been there long enough to teach two of my family's generations. My son has a family and lives out of state and trying to find a school for his daughters that comes close to OMS is impossible . The owners have done a wonderful job in assembling a staff that has been there for more that 20 years .I am truly indebted to OMS for being there for my kids and instilling such wonderful values in my kids and the education to use them."
