    Excellent school for pre-K to grade 3 but not recommended for upper elementary (grades 4 5 6). Teacher in this mixed age classroom has been there too long & is no longer excited about kids or Montessori teaching. She's awkwardly out of touch with kids in the 9-12 age group shows overt favoritism dislikes parents and has weak academics; parents have left in droves because of her (she is dismissive of parents never acts on their input). The administration is aware of the situation and of the exodus of many great families but does nothing. The school turns out great character-based kids but grades 4 5 6 are a waste. The upper elementary teacher does not follow AMI Montessori curriculum and uses non-Montessori-sanctioned materials to try to prepare kids for traditional school but fails. They are all poor spellers. All other teachers are great; upper el is academically weak & there have been numerous complaints voiced. Enrollment has been dwindling since we left. MA would be a great school if they fixed this classroom and hired a strong enthusiastic AMI teacher but from the looks of it they won't.

    Mater Amoris is a lovely Montessori School. The community of parents and faculty is warm and caring. My children have been extremely happy and have gained a strong love of learning. We couldn't be happier with our choice.
