Small sweet Montessori school trying to grow an upper elementary class. Our child attended 1st and 2nd grade with many friends in Kindergarten and friends' siblings in pre-K. At least one trained Montessori teacher in each room. Very involved warm parents small size and direct access to head of school make monthly PTA meetings unusually effective. She wants to grow school to pre-K to 6 but only one or two over 3rd graders are in same room with 1st-3rd. Our child did well in academics but struggled with clique issues. Some kids do not do well in academics. Homework is assigned. Spanish and Music were offered but via parents and freelance help. Lots of love some chaos. School rents space from Greek Orthodox Cathedral lovely view big indoor space available but annual Greek Festival closes school for 7 days every spring. PTA organizes 3 day/2 night camp out that week.
