    "This school is beneficial for some children and families but it's definitely not for everyone. We had a negative experience, unfortunately as we had heard many positive things about it. The program has grown over the last few years and although it tries hard to follow the Montessori philosophy it is not able to fully embrace it. There are lots of discipline issues that I felt were not handled appropriately with some teachers using punitive and harmful methods meant to motivate students. The idea 'do no harm' was certainly not in place in some classrooms at this school. The multi-grade classrooms are a good idea in theory however it is difficult for some of the teachers to maintain a positive classroom environment managing 20 children (20 students to 1 teacher) working at many different academic levels. Some teachers seemed to struggle in managing their classes which resulted in disrespect, bullying, and a chaotic environment. At times children were left unsupervised by a grown-up (3rd graders supervising younger children in the bathroom) which I found extremely unacceptable. On a positive note, the Principal is kind and accessible and some teachers are competent and engaging."

    "Montessori is amazing. Never have I felt so welcome to become involved in my children's learning processes. I don't regret my decision to place them at Montessori. I also found it impressive that the principal knows each individual by name. She is wonderful!"

    "There is no other equivilant school in district 205 that can compete with the Montessori Magnet School (academically, life/social skills, art and music, and recognizing the individual child). I cannot praise this program enough."

    "My daughter LOVES to go to school! Her teacher is caring and her classmates are curteous and use manners! When we visited the school at an open house I thought I was in another world-Pre-K and K were in the room working together and not fighting for the same project, speaking and not yelling, walking and not running, learning and not there because they had to be! This is the BEST school as it allows you and your child to build a relationship with the teacher (your child will only have 3 teachers the entire time he/she is there, instead of 7 like all the others) and it is one of the only public schools that has a structured Pre-K program. We are honored to have been chosen to participate in such a wonderful program and recommend it Montessori Magnet to all our friends and family!"
