    "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."

    "Garden Oaks has been fantastic!! The teachers recognize the students as individuals and help them foster their strengths. I love that the environment teaches personal accountability and allows them to build skills for successful lifelong learning. My children grasp on to concepts quickly because they can explore the topic in a number of ways. They aren't confined to learning based on what they can accomplish at a desk. Because they work in classrooms that span 3 yr age groups, they learn how to appreciate and communicate with people that span different abilities. Students encourage their classmates to be their best. This school is literally building all the skills needed for future leaders."

    "There have been some comments on here about the school's test scores. All of my children attend Garden Oaks and I am not the least bit concerned about the school's test scores. A Montessori program focuses on the whole child and on so many more factors than can be measured by a standardized test. Additionally -- Montessori is designed so that children can learn at their own pace. The traditional system is not designed for this (which goes against everything we know about human learning), and I will argue that the problem with any school's test scores is not a reflection of the quality of the teaching. It is only a reflection of the reality that all children learn at different individual paces. A traditional model ignores this reality. I don't need a test score to be able to observe learning in my own child. Garden Oaks is a wonderful school and we are so impressed with the growth and progress across a wide variety of skills and knowledge that we have witnessed in our own children as a result of the guidance and support of the caring educators at Garden Oaks."
