    "Our daughter went through the primary program, and we couldn't have been happier with this school! She grew into an independent, curious, and thoughtful learner. The staff were so caring and wonderful with her that we chose to send her back for summer sessions even after we moved on to public schools. The skills she learned at Brush Creek transferred beautifully to her work in public school. We are especially grateful for the conflict resolution skills she developed through the Peace Education program. These skills will stay with her for life. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to any parent looking for a quality Montessori school."

    "My children have been fortunate enough to experience the Toddler, Primary and lower Elementary classrooms in Brush Creek. The Montessori methods and high caliber of teaching staff have allowed my children to thrive. I understand that Montessori might not be right for everyone but our experience has been outstanding. The school has gone over and beyond to help us with our specific challenges and the teachers do whatever it takes to help the kids reach their full potential."

    "Though we haven't attended BCMS for 4 years, we still hold BCMS very close to our hearts and appreciate all that they did to set our two daughters up as curious, life-long learners. One of the things that we've heard time and again about our older daughter is that she is an enthusiastic learner, and an asset to a classroom as a result. Her enthusiasm is infectious. I credit her teacher, Jed, Jessica and Pauline at BCMS for having a big part in that!! Our younger daughter continues to be well ahead of her peers in school, and that head start happened at BCMS in the preschool program, which she attended for 3 years. We feel so fortunate to have been able to provide our girls with a true Montessori experience and count the teachers there as part of the village that set our girls up for success."

    "Brush Creek Montessori adheres to Maria Montessori's philosophy of developing the whole child. Children are encouraged, from the time they can walk, to become independent learners who are capable and happy. The classroom environment, with low student to teacher ratios, are deigned to help students learn at their own pace and follow their own interests. Mixed age classrooms foster a cooperative rather than competitive atmosphere. Brush Creek has Art, Drama, Spanish, and Music as integral parts of our program, from pre-school through 8th grades. Our elementary students develop respect for one another and their larger community by learning by an interdisciplinary approach that shows that all of humanity is connected through ingenuity, economy, and industry. Our Adolescent students design and run enterprises to pay for a yearly class trip. Conflict resolution and Peace Education is a key component of BCMS. Set on a beautiful 2 acre wooded campus, you'll feel transported into nature even though we are on a thoroughfare close to downtown Santa Rosa. Visit our school, speak with our staff, and observe how our children are becoming life-long learners."

    "I am sure this school is great at the preschool and perhaps K level. At the upper grades, I truly caution anyone from putting there children in this school. They use the "Montessori Method" as a defense to parents for when they (choose) not to entertain valid concerns or requests from parents about the educational curriculum, social protocols, and the like. Regardless of what philosophy/ teaching orientation, certain basic understanding of math, science, differences of learning style, and willingness to expand on what's working and take a good look at what's not - are signs of a good teacher, school, classroom. BCM will use the Montessori Method as a way to abdicate responsibility and put it 100% back on the parents when there are challenges or learning issues. MANY children who 'are doing well' at BCM have parents who have been willing to supplement the 8K a year with private tutoring (another 1-2k a year) and are willing to overlook, ignore the overall deficits of this school because they like it for their children. That's fine. Just beware this school has serious issues in terms of math, science, and language teaching at the higher grades in particular."
