  • Our son was bullied (by the son of a staff member) at this school and the head of school did nothing of substance to address the issue.

  • Sometimes you get nothing for the money. This schools tuition contract is unethical with a big U. If, your child is expelled by The Montessori Academy at Edison Lakes (TMA), fails to strive in this learning environment, relocates to another country or state due to the parent(s) unpredictable life changes, you will pay tuition for the entire academic year. Do not be fooled into believing the Financial Committee can or will make any exceptions to the contract. Also, the Financial Committee will not try to come up with a dollar amount to accommodate early departure from the original tuition contract. If, you want to hear no refund or relief from tuition then put your child in this school. An exceptional school does NOT need a contract such as this one to survive. This schools enrollment has been dropping for the last six years I wonder why?

  • The Montessori Academy is great place to work! Now, I have many wonderful friends who are like my family. I have learned so much about the Maria Montessori method of teaching from watching the Montessori teachers guide children to higher levels of thinking, discipline and independence, that I wish I was a child again myself. If I had the opportunity to rewrite my life, I would have sent my own children to this environment of learning.
