    "If you'd rather write a check than volunteer to help with a school event--move on, this probably isn't the school for you. If you are wary of dumbed-down public school curricula, and are willing to engage as a member of the school community and as a team member in your child's education, check out Khalsa. My daughter was "held back" due to a learning disability, but the extra time to mature, and to experience the full Montessori growth cycles, has been beneficial in her high school years. Teachers and admin were proactive about designing a sensible IEP, and regularly evaluating and adjusting it. The sense of community and belonging during her Khalsa years has made my child a more engaged and involved citizen of her high school. KMES is a tough school, with no sports and few extra-curricular offerings. Some parents find certain teachers off-putting, the admin unyielding, and the curriculum too demanding, and some kids don't make it through. But the academic and emotional rewards for those who graduate are core-forming and lasting. God bless Maria Montessori!"

    "Original posts have been removed. Mine no longer are on here. I had 2 children at Khalsa. We love this school. We had 2 children that attended up until the oldest went to lower elementary. I have nothing good to say about the administration. It is horrible how they treat the parents instating that there is something wrong with their child. We spent a substantial amount of money based on their recommendations. There was nothing wrong with our children. They are at Faith North and flourishing. The staff at Primary were awesome, compassionate and understanding. The administration is not."

    "I was very unhappy with the administration here. They were so disrespectful to parents. It was never their fault, either the parents needed therapy or the child had a learning disability or needed therapy. They like to diagnose your child with no qualifications to do so. Also, school has no sports and no music program."

    "It appears that a number of reviews have been removed as evidenced by references to dates for reviews not present. How can this site provide a thorough representation of a school when reviews are being removed???"

    "This is an unusual, terrific school. The teachers keep in close contact with the parents, the students do yoga, garden, learn Spanish and are taught to be good stewards of the environment. I'm happy my students attend this school!"
