My son's school is great. The teachers are motivated to teaching our children and have the patients needed to guide each individual child on their own learning curb.
I thought this would be a wonderful school for my son sadly it has been nothing but problems. The 7th & 8th grade science/math teacher is just flat out mean and awful he grades based on how much he likes a child. If my son forgets a permission slip for a field trip he is punished by not being allowed recess which I feel is very necessary for his health. Mind you a permission slip that I FORGOT to sign not that he forgot. When I ran right back up to sign they still told him it missed the deadline and no recess. He was also given a 0 on not turning in a permission slip I had tossed because he was not attending. They love to punish children for sins of the parents. I cannot wait for my child to be out of this horrible school which has given him health issues and the principal will not listen to me.
Our 3yro daughter had her first day at Drummond today. We have experienced several different school climates within CPS and Drummond's school community far exceeds them all. When she wouldn't nap today even the principal took some time to come in and sit with her. As a parent that speaks volumes to me about his interest into the well-being of my child. Her teacher was so gentle and kind yet honest in communicating what I imagine was a fairly tiring and challenging situation. We are so thrilled to be a part of this new community!
Drummond Montessori is the first public Montessori in Chicago. The teachers and admin are great. The school is small for CPs it's a great community. The students range from 3 yrs. To 8th grade. The big kids are really sweet with and great takers of the little kids. We feel lucky to have gotten in and are thrilled that younger siblings can enroll.
This school is the best school you can find. My daughter has attended other schools before this one but this one is by far the best. The school is small which helps children feel comfortable. The students are great! All the students know each other even when they are in diffrent grades. I walked in to Drummond one day and see a teenage student saying hello and starting conversation with a pre-schooler! You don`t see THAT in other schools. If you are planning to enroll your child this school do so. This school has a loving caring and safe atmosphere that you and your child will love. This school also has tutoring after school and teachers are more than willing to help your child if they are struggling with school and this school has NO bulling.
This school is horrible! The programs are not satisfying at all. My son is 9 years old and just after 3 months of attending this 'great school' he started cursing and having negative thoughts about school and education. My advice to any parents considering enrolling their child at Drummond school DO NOT DO IT.
Our daughter attends Drummond Montessori in the 3 yr old program. She loves it!! We are so impressed with how much she has learned and how mature and independent she is after just a few months. The teachers are great as is the principal. Parent involvement is high and the kids are well-behaved. We can't say enough good things about the school.
Wonderful atmosphere student-centered learning. Exceptional school.
Great teachers programs and overall great atmosphere!
The kids at Drummond are smart and the teachers help them stay motivated.
Great program great teaches great sense of community
The staff is excellent and my children are being prepared for life-long succes.
I think their teachers are wonderful and the curriculum is great! My three grandchildren are in the Motessori program and they are all doing very well. They look forward to going to school each day.
the supportive caring and open community of staff parents and teachers are awesome and quite rare in a big city.
We are so happy to be part of the Drummond community. We have been so impressed with the classroom materials instruction and incredibly dedicated parent community teachers and principal. A real gem and a great model for other urban public schools.
Drummond provides an excellent education as a public school in Chicago. The level of experience of its teachers is outstanding and their community outreach is tremendous. We have 2 kids at the school and both have transitioned so well to school and we know it has everything to do with the quality of the staff at the school.
drummond is a wonderful community of dedicated teachers administrators and parents and my kids love school.
Drummond is a free public Montessori for 3 year olds through 8th grade and it rocks! The teachers kids and parents are the best.
The Montessori program enables each child to learn at his or her own pace keeping the child's interest level and involvement at a high level. The administration pays close attention to each child's individual needs and my grandson in first grade is learning by leaps and bounds.
