While the Christian influence is evident throughout the Montessori part is a bit more hit or miss. Not all teachers are Montessori qualified and even if they are are not required to teach via the Montessori method. I liked all the teachers and they seemed genuinely interested in my kids (I had two enrolled one at PK and one at K levels). When we enrolled I emphasized that I wanted more Montessori in my kids' instruction not the public preparatory work they also do. Yet it took 1/2 the year for the actual Montessori materials to be moved into my daughter's classroom. Prior to that point the materials were stored in the classroom of a teacher who is not Montessori certified and did not use the materials in her lessons. My son started in one classroom but when he started resisting going to school in the morning I checked in with the school--turns out he had been placed with the less Montessori method of the two classes and once he was shifted to the more free-form Montessori-style class he did much better--even though that teacher was not Montessori certified. We will not be returning next year.
