    "All three of my children attended this school for three years apiece, so we have attended for 8 years, with the same teacher the entire time. They all went through the primary program, from 3 - 6 years old. My daughters have thrived in the child-directed learning environment, and I love that each child learns at his or her own pace - no one is held back or left behind. This school provides the perfect blend of fun activities and academics, with singing, movement, crafts, and academics done with manipulatives that seem like games to the kids. The kindergarten aged kids receive Spanish weekly and group instruction in the afternoon on science topics. My daughters, when they transition to public school in first grade, have all been among the best readers in their classes and more advanced in math. OSM is not a high pressure environment, it is extremely nurturing. I love that practical life skills are a core part of the curriculum - the children prepare their own food, do the dishes after they snack, etc. The children flourish in this program to become confident kids who are encouraged to choose challenging work for themselves. They also have a lovely summer camp option."

    "As a parent of a child who has attended osm from age 3 to sixth grade, I highly recommend this school. They care about your child and the community. They have had fundraiser to help people in the community, as well as victims of the hurricanes, tsunami, march of dimes, and many other great causes. They have helped my child deal emotionally with a family illness and she has always had excellent grades. Over the years my child has had wonderful and caring teachers. It's been a wonderful experience."

    "As both a grandparent of students now attending OSM and an educator with 39 years of experience in the field of education, I am beyond thrilled that my grandchildren are attending Old School Montessori. Their open door policy is refreshing and I am able to stop in frequently to observe my grandchildren in their classrooms, both primary and elementary. I have also spoken to parents of former students who are now in college and they have nothing but positive things to say about their children's experiences at OSM. I have read all of the other reviews on this site and hope that all prospective families will make their own judgment about OSM. I highly recommend this school."

    "Run away while you can....this school has gone way downhill, yes - most of the teachers are great and my kids loved them but administration is completely unqualified and leaves much to be desired. The school's new owner/administrator is often rude, cold and uninformed caring mostly about collecting tuition payments. Many parents have removed their children, returning to the public schools or other alternatives. Don't be fooled by the five, five star reviews ...there are some employees that will make sure to make your life miserable any time they can if they don't like you and yes - stuff always quit and all the valuable people working there for past 10-15 years are already gone. It just speaks for itself. Customer service is for sure not in their agenda - they don't care about the kids and their families, all we are is just $$ numbers in new owner revenues."

    "All staff is wonderful my child was doing great but had to pull her out. However the administration has lost all my respect. They're rude to the parents. They're mean to children they don't like. Staff always quit and diverce people are always hired in their place. Not that there is anything wrong with that but they can hardly speak English."
