    "My son has been at GOMM almost three years now and we are extremely pleased with the school. I realize the style of learning is not for everyone, and it's important for parents to look into Montessori before enrolling their child in this school. However, my child has excelled since enrolling here. His reading, writing and math abilities are much farther advanced than our friends and family's kids who are at other area elementary schools. Parents are extremely involved and help coordinate a lot of activities like the Pancake Breakfast, Ice Cream Social, Holiday Show and Fall Festival. They also try to hold field trips as much as their budget allows (recently they went to the Science Museum and have plans to go to the Hobby Center soon). The principal, Dr. Pollack seems to be very accessible and can be seen at the front of the school every morning."

    "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!"
