My son has been at Montessori since he was 4 years old. He is now 7 and will start 2nd grade there next week. The teachers are amazing with the children very caring. The one on one the students receive really has an impact on their ability to excel. I would highly recommend this school to any parent wanting their child to achieve an excellent education. The principal is amazing with parents and students as well. FIVE STARS *****
Montessori Academy is a private elementary school in Riverside. The principal of Montessori Academy is Mr. Nabadawa Chandrapala, who can be contacted at email@example.com. 26 children attend Montessori Academy and are mostly Black, non-Hispanic; White, non-Hispanic; and Hispanic. The ratio of students to teachers at Montessori Academy is 11:1. Pachappa Elementary School is one of the nearest elementary schools.
My son loved this school. The teachers and principal are kind and caring but have high standards. Since it is a small campus and small class size there is a emphasis on community and a closeness that my son will remember the rest of his life. He was well prepared to move on to higher grades. The playground facilities and the instructional materials could use some updating but overall I would recommed this school to anyone. Also the tuition costs are reasonable and after school care is excellent. Just wished it was a larger campus and went through 6th grade.
The quality of the math reading and writing programs is excellent. Children are allowed to progress at their own pace. There does seem to be a lack of art music and social studies.
My child started Montessori Academy at the age of 5 years. He is in 3rd grade now and this school year is his last at Montessori Academy. My husband and I only wish the school goes beyond 3rd grade. The teachers are highly competent knowledgeable of their teaching methods and highly demonstrate their expertise in bringing out the best in each child. The Principal is very kind nurtures the children and knows each child by name. We are planning on sending our two other children to Montessori Academy simply for both their academic performance and excellent reputation overall as well as the daily communication/updates that exist between the school personnel and parents.
