Ivy School opinions from Montessori parents
April 06, 2011
Hi. We (amazingly) have been awarded a spot for our daughter for 1st grade at Ivy School next year. I've seen some very positive comments from parents and so am very happy we have this choice (!), but I still have a few reservations because I don't feel I know enough yet. I'm particularly interested in hearing from existing parents whose children went to Montessori for primary. Do you feel the program follows the Montessori approach well? The new administrator seems very qualified, but doesn't have Montessori experience. Do you feel she's a good supporter of the staff and Montessori approach? I found a report of last year's test results, which weren't great. Granted, one of the main reasons I'm interested in Ivy is that they won't be "teaching to the test". Still, do any parents have comments about these?
