    "Both my children attended this school. It is a great school with wonderful, and caring teachers who take the time to communicate with parents, and address the students needs. Administration is kind and understanding and on top of any issues that may arise. The education my children received from Montessori is priceless."

    "My daughter has been going to school here for four years and my son has just started Kindergarten. We have had experience before in a great public school close by, but I prefer Mountainside because it is a small school which allows for personal interaction and a great community atmosphere. I have read some of the other negative reviews, and I have to admit that there are definitely children who would not thrive in a Montessori environment. But overall, I think that it offers an individualized program and freedom for a child to go at their own pace, which my gifted daughter has benefited from greatly. Also, having worked as a teacher in public education I know that there will always be some conflicts between parents and school staff, and because of its small size any problem at MDS may proportionally seem large. All of my own dealings with the administration at Mountainside has been positive, and they have addressed any issues I had in an open and proactive manner. Every teacher I have worked with has also been very dedicated. Each school has pros and cons, but I would greatly recommend MDS for an education that will prepare a child for the real world."

    "My child attended this school for 1 1/2 yrs. My child has Aspergers and even though we saw their recommended therapist at their insistance, they refused to address the issues that THIER OWN THERAPIST brought to light. My son was ostracized and segregated by the teacher and would start crying on the way home over how he was being treated. He was not allowed to use any of the coping skills he had been taught by the therapist. Although they are a charter school and were REQUIRED BY STATE LAW to comply with the individuals with Disabilities Education Act, we were told that they did not have anything in place and were not able to 'handle' him. With only two weeks left before the end of the fall semester, we were asked not to return for the spring."

    "I love the friendly and caring environment of Montessori Day School. As a special education teacher who has had the opportunity to work in several different environments, I can say that the children who have any challenges are treated with respect by both staff and the other students on this campus. While their needs are addressed by not only their regular classroom teacher, they are also pulled-out by the special education teacher weekly. The regular education teachers in the classrooms understand the importance of individualizing instruction for each student's unique needs. It is as though special education goes on all day long in the classrooms because staff members understand that each child is special."
