    "There's too much emphasis placed on teaching kids to read and write but the not enough on emotional growth and socialization. Children as young as 3 and 4 are punished by timeouts, frowns and finger wagging while "the good kids" are showered with warm hugs and extra attention. Overall, there's not enough supervision of the teaching staff. Some of the teachers spend half the day chatting with one another or with certain parents."

    "I agree with the previous reviewers regarding the quality of this school. My daughter has been here for nearly a year and I am so impressed that she is reading small words and even spelling them. Moreover, she truly enjoys going to school as not only do they do work, but they have fun activities! The teachers have longevity, which I feel is very important. Many of them have been there for 15-20 years! I would definitely recommend sending your child to this school."

    "Okay, I am through my 3rd child. First one I sent to two different Montessori schools, because we moved. The first school i loved (in a different state), -- did not like the second one here in San Diego at all (scripps ranch location). My second child attended Montessori School of San Diego. Since I had other schools to compare it to (not being a first time mom), I realized it to be the jewel that it is. Anyone who goes here, especially after they leave, will realize it as a jewel that they were privileged to find. Believe me, you will not find a better school for early education any where in San Diego."

    "My daughter is in her second year here and is THRIVING. We started preschool at 3 at a traditional play-based school, and she hated going to school and it was a struggle. We switched to Montessori the next semester, and now she LOVES school! She is learning a ton and has developed and fabulous amount of self esteem by being able to do things herself. We are constantly approached by strangers commenting on how articulate she is. Miss Patti and Miss Biljiana are very nurturing and calm which creates a great learning environment for the kids. The teachers are also well educated and really pay attention to each child's individual needs."

    "I have 2 boys that attend the Montessori School of San Diego. I feel like I won the lottery or something. This school has been heaven sent to us. Some people might say it is too academic for a child, but I feel that the montessori environment has let my children thrive at their own pace. My five year old is reading chapter books and LOVES it. Mrs. Samiya and Ms. Maria are truley living up to their talent. I could not ask for better teachers."
