    "My family is going into its eighth year of having a child at Keystone. Over the years I could easily have seen why some might perceive that large benefactors' children receive preferential treatment. But that is a short sighted view of how the school operates. As you spend more time in the school you see that everyone takes their gifts and their lumps equally. The administration has gone out of their way in classroom placements to not give large contributors/volunteers the teachers that the parents requested. Any school is going to have its strong and weak teachers based on a parent's opinion. But in the end each of those teachers might be the best teacher your child has in school, or the worst teacher your friend's child had in school. Keystone does have an active and involved parent community. Contributing to the community is every family's personal decision. We appreciate the education that our children are receiving at Keystone and would recommend it to other families that are willing to make the commitment to the full (and lengthy) experience of a Montessori education."

    "They give obvious preference to families with money, and conveniently 'lose' the wait list paperwork of people without money. In general, the only way to assure you get in is to start in preschool. After that, the chances are slim, and are zero if you ask about the annual contribution or the possibility of a scholarship."

    "I am a former student and personally I have to say that Keystone was a great during my elementary years. However when it comes to the adolescents Keystone doesn't have a clue what they're doing. I can say from personal experience that I was unprepared for the work load in high school. I can also say that Keystone did not give me the social skills I needed for high school. I was also the victim of bullying during my later years at Keystone. When I approached teachers and staff about the bullying I was not helped. Some of the teachers also developed personal hatred for me. Do yourselves a favor and either don't send your children to Keystone or move them before they get to 6th or 7th grade."

    "I am a current student of Keystone Montessori and personally, I couldn't be happier. The teachers are kind and understanding, but, of course, push you, and Keystone definitely is not the type of school where you have to worry about bullying and discrimination. I'm currently in seventh grade, almost eighth grade, and in throughout all seven of the years I've gone to Keystone I haven't encountered one bully or unfair teacher. (Strict teachers, yes, but that, to a reasonable extent, is necessary.) And the education is great, too! If you are looking for a school that will help your child aspire in all academical fields, Keystone Montessori is definitely the best choices out there."

    "I am a current student and I believe Keystone Montessori is a very productive school that's fun at the same time. It has to be one of my most favorite schools that I've been to yet! I have learned many new and interesting things. I've also improved in many subjects and have met many nice and respectful people."
