    "My kids went to a public school in the area which had been considered "THE best," however I was consistently disappointed by the bullying going on, lack of attention from teachers, and by poor responses to my complaint even after reaching out to the board. Horizon Montessori offers a great balance. The staff are all very attentive and my boys when asked both say they would never want to be elsewhere. The first few days at pickup were hectic but now that everyone new got into a rhythm, it's perfect. I feel that my children are safe there and am glad they have rules in place to ensure that."

    "First Day:I got there at 7:40 am waited in line for 30 minutes to leave my son at the door of the building (you are not allowed to walk inside the school, doesn't matter if its his first or last day). One person will receive your child, a second person will walk your child halfway to the classroom, and a third person will finish walking him To his classroom. They never asked for my son's birth ert, ss card, nor immunization card. Pick Up - waited from 3:13 pm until 3:50 in a huge crowd of parents yelling their child's name, under 100F degrees. His first year. No id asked. Last person that worked at that school to see my son was 10 feet away from me (in front of me was 8 parents). It was those 8 parents that were gently moving my son my way so he could get to me. Second Day - A kid stepped on my son's hand, and pulled his tag from his shirt. My son told the teacher. What did she say/do? Nothing, she was busy. On my way to the office, a mother was crying because his son's teacher said that her child never got to the classroom, so she didn't know where he was at. Overall Disorganized."

    "I was very happy when my son entered preschool since the McAllen campus had a great curriculum. By the time my son was in 2nd grade things were getting so bad. The "Montessori" name should be only for pre-k and kinder. The owner did not want to buy more Montessori materials for the upper grades because they are too expensive. The teacher turnover should be a sign that they are not being treated well. They had to buy their own materials and even the teachers with more seniority had to give their own materials to the new teachers because the school did not provide any new materials, whether is was for the Montessori system or the regular. the school supply list was way too much, parents even had to provide paper for the copy machine. What started was a great educational concept was ruined by being looked more like a business. The teachers were good, dedicated and caring. I would not recommend this school unless the public school your kid belongs to is ABSOLUTELY terrible. Classes are overcrowded and understaffed. Very disappointed parent"

    "It is important to be truthful here and these "after school activities" are not free in the McAllen school. They charge the same rate as outside programs (or even more) while using the school's facilities. Attended today's info session and it was a mess, the nurse's office looked like it been in a war zone. There was a "number system" that was abandoned after 15 min because of lack of order. The require the purchase of uniforms in low quality fabrics. The list is growing, but still more to come in the next couple of days. So far extremely disappointed."
