    "I completely agree with the Principal. Our child went to WMS for 2 years before I was relocated by my company to a different state. I cannot speak highly enough of what a great job the Principal and her faculty do to make this one of the best Montessori Programs in Houston. Pulling my child from this school is the one thing I regret about my move out of State. The level or standard of teaching at WMS is absolutely phenomenal. This is one of the reasons why they have a waiting list without an agressive advertising campaign."

    "I am very disturbed about the review Something is fishy . The honest truth is our staff turnover is extremely low. Our teachers have all been with WMS for 5 or more years and most of our classroom assistants have been with us for over 5 years, with only one with us for less than 5 years. We usually see turnover in our after-school staff, primarily because they are mostly college students who move on after completing their degree. Our most recent hire for the after-school staff has been with us for 5 months and she was hired to replace an employee who resigned after being with us for 6 years. I don t understand why the person posting this review said that we have replaced all of our assistants twice within the last 8 months. That is simply not true. In addition, I have not received a complaint from any parent in our school regarding "hum-drum" work being given to their student. The reviewer stated that he/she taught their child to read, write, subtract, count and spell. All of these concepts are taught and/or reinforced in all of our programs. If this parent was not happy with our program, it would have been beneficial for the child, the parent and the school if I had been made aware of the concerns. I would specifically request that anyone interested in Westside Montessori School for their children to please call or come by the school for a tour. We will be able to answer all of your questions and concerns and you will be able to see the stable, caring and nurturing environment we are so proud of at WMS."

    "There is something fishy with this school. In 8 months, all of the teacher aids were replaced twice. Why? This school can't hold on to their employees? The parental involvement is based on what the school says is correct: donate money to support our financial private business endeavors of expanding the school, and volunteer your time to make our grounds and equipment attractive. Parental involvement is reinforcing concepts, fostering development. I taught my child to read--not the school. I taught my child how to subtract, count, spell, and write. Not the school. Although I repeatedly told the teacher what I had taught my child, these ideas were not reinforced and my child was just given hum-drum work."

    "This school is so wonderful. The staff is caring and professional and the atmosphere is very pleasant. We enjoyed the summer program and the extra-curricular activities are superior. My child took Arts Ala Carte and now he can't stop talking about Vincent Van Gogh...we were very impressed!"

    "My daughter has been in this school since 18 months , now she is 5 years , It is an amazing school , with caring teachers , a wonderfull staff! the parents involment is amazing , since it is a non profit org , their is a lot of volunteer work for those interested , for me being involved in my daughters education is a 'must' so I have been volunteering all these years , and it has been gratifying experience. My daughter wakes up everyday excited to go to school. It is amazing how kids of different ages learn together in a class. They learn by individual lesson given by the teacher and by watching others recieve their lesson , the best part is that the child gets to give a lesson too. They feel so pround of them selfs!!! Definetly consider The Montesorri Method in your childs education"
