    "We started searching for schools before our daughter was born and Garden Oaks Montessori has proven to be the best choice . All you parents out there doing your research reading reviews and checking stats , I wish you well . Just don't believe the hype that you see on the rankings pages of best schools in this city . My family prefers a school that remembers our child is worth more than her last TASK . If this school could be rated on focusing on your child to encourage community , self confidence leadership and becoming ready for their next level of education , then they would be number 1 . Yes , we have made the right decision to jump start her school career here at GOMM ."

    "Totally misleading. Rude office staff. Some of the parents have an highly inflated perception of themselves and the GO community. Teaching (in my daughter's class) was minimal. Classroom management was horrible. My daughter came home every day talking about how noisy the classroom was and how other kids were distracting her, or getting into trouble, or causing the class to lose activities. Her Stanford test scores went down after attending GO. Extremely disappointing. Listen to the negative reviews. It's really NOT just one or two parents with problem children. My daughter is an extremely discipline, high achiever. My husband and I are both educators. We knew almost immediately (but not quickly enough) that it was a mistake to enroll her here. Parents are really involved which is a great thing, but parent involvement can also have ugly intentions. Pick another magnet school. There are WAY better ones out there."

    "My school is amazing! It was a Magnet Schools of America school of Distinction. Always something happening to support families and children. Happy children who love learning - more than just test scores!"

    "My two granddaughter have attended this school since PreK. They are now in grades 6 and 3. We have been very impressed with the curriculum and the incredible support they teceive from their teachers. It has a caring and family atmosphere. Go Garden Oaks."

    "Garden Oaks is a great place for social fun. There's lots of parental involvement, and the school calendar is loaded - very impressive. We are NOT happy with the level of teaching, however. The Montessori Program doesn't appear to work at the school level, and we don't believe that it is a true Montessorit program, especially since children have to take STAAR tests. It all looks great on paper and during walk throughs. As it turns out, we are HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED, but "different strokes for different folks." This is a great forum for parents to express their own personal views, experiences and perspectives of this school. Each will vary, but should be respected, so parents looking for a campus can make their choices based on ratings/comments. Each will need to see and learn for themselves just as we did. We just can't tell you how disappointed we are."
