    "The guides at this school are exceptional! They have a strong level of commitment to their students and go above and beyond to ensure development of the whole student. They get 5 stars! Notably, the school is now Waypoint Montessori. In the last two years, there was a change in administration. It seems as though the staff is going through a transitional period under the new leadership. Some seasoned staff have left and others seem to have pondered leaving. This may work itself out over the next few years. As of now, it appears confusing to a parent looking in from the outside and makes you question what is really going on behind the scenes. Classes, are comprised of a wide range of students. Some students benefit from the Montessori approach, while others do not seem to benefit. At times it seems that they accept students who probably don't show promise in the Montessori environment and have needs above and beyond what is offered. Several students would greatly benefit from direct instruction in bullying prevention and promoting kindness from a trained professional. Overall, the school is average, especially when you consider the tuition you pay."

    "I first learned of BGMS by attending the parent infant class with my son, going one day a week for 2 hours over a period of 10 or so months. I had zero exposure or understanding of Montessori (and more specifically, true AMI Montessori) until this time. I work from home and originally had planned to keep my children home with me along with a nanny until they started Kindergarden. Any kind of daycare seemed unnecessary. My exposure to BGMS during the parent infant class completely changed my mind. Around 18 months I felt my son truly NEEDED to be submerged into this environment more than 2 hours a week and my instincts were right. He has absolutely thrived in the toddler community. I have very minimal power struggles with my just turned 2 year old and have never seen a tantrum out of him. I attribute most of this to him feeling fulfilled during the day at school and my husband and I learning the 'Montessori way' of how to communicate with him on a daily basis through wonderful direction given to me by the guides. He is already potty trained and his lunches always consist of fresh, non-processed foods. I am a very pleased parent and plan to send all of our children here."

    "Worked for one our two kids, but had some difficulty transitioning to public elementary from the self guided Montessori program to the more structured elementary approach used in our public school. We felt the class sizes was little large given the price. Could benefit from more physical activity. Some kids seemed to thrive, some didn't with their approach."

    "We just love our school! My children have attended for over 4 years and I cannot imagine giving them a greater gift than BGMS. Our children are confident, happy and self motivated. The guides are kind, caring and personally invested in following the AMI standards that drew us to the school. It's easy to get feedback from guides via email. I feel lucky to be part of this community!"

    "We have had a wonderful experience with this school! We have two children enrolled and have been happy with both our teachers and the other kids. Everyone is helpful and engaged when we have concerns and questions. The new administration has been smooth to come in and hasn't disrupted our experience with the classes at all. I hope to keep our kids here through middle school."
