Montessori is amazing. Never have I felt so welcome to become involved in my children's learning processes. I don't regret my decision to place them at Montessori. I also found it impressive that the principal knows each individual by name. She is wonderful!
There is no other equivilant school in district 205 that can compete with the Montessori Magnet School (academically life/social skills art and music and recognizing the individual child). I cannot praise this program enough.
My daughter LOVES to go to school! Her teacher is caring and her classmates are curteous and use manners! When we visited the school at an open house I thought I was in another world-Pre-K and K were in the room working together and not fighting for the same project speaking and not yelling walking and not running learning and not there because they had to be! This is the BEST school as it allows you and your child to build a relationship with the teacher (your child will only have 3 teachers the entire time he/she is there instead of 7 like all the others) and it is one of the only public schools that has a structured Pre-K program. We are honored to have been chosen to participate in such a wonderful program and recommend it Montessori Magnet to all our friends and family!
This school is the best Rockfrord Public school! I have had students enrolled at this school for 12 years and this has been a very wonderful school. The teachers are very caring and really get to know the students and family. Education and everyday life is taught at its highest. They are all taught to love everyone and that it takes everyone to make up a community like the community they have at this school. The pricipal is very good. All of the teachers and parents are very happy with what she has accomplished at this school.
