    "Pittsburgh Montessori. I have been quite pleased with my experience at Pittsburgh Montessori. I love my son's teacher. She has a calm demeanor and she encourages the kids to think about problem solving and doesn't just do it for them. It seems like the teachers work well together too and help each other out. I feel like the environment supports creativity and independence. It's also a beautiful school. The hallways and classrooms are cozy and pretty and not bombarded with stuff like some classrooms I have seen. There is ballroom dancing, an edible garden, art, music, and cool incentive clubs like sushi-making, Spanish, and origami. There are also a lot of involved parents. The things I don't like about it are the same things that I don't like with any school such as too much testing and not enough outside time. I feel that many of the Pittsburgh Public schools are very good but people are quick to assume otherwise because they get a lot of bad publicity. Oh, and the other reason I love it is because my son loves it, which is huge."

    "This school was one of the few jewels of the PPS system. However, last year the principal retired and it has been utter chaos ever since. Two principals, three lunch coordinators and a virtual cavalcade of temps, aides, and volunteers in one 1-3 grade (lost count after SEVEN instructors) have shown this school lacks leadership and discipline at all administrative levels. Now it is being reduced to a PreK-5 beginning next year. This school won't exist much longer if this keeps up - and there are no signs that point to things getting any better."

    "I had a child in that school for 19 years and love the Montessori concept, the nurturing and caring, and the sense of community within the school!"

    "There are too many children who disrupt the classroom. Teachers are too busy dealing with kids social problems. It seems almost impossible to incorporate the Montessori method in the school."
