The quality and standards of the school have gone down tremendously - they don't use Montessori methodology and are more traditionally driven. And its expensive school. Teachers do preferential treatment to kids.

I''m amazed at what my children can do!! The staff lovingly care for my children while at school. They foster my kids'' interests as they guide them through the Montessori materials. I am allowed to observe my children as they work. After a while, they forget I am even there! My pre-K daughter knows the days of the week, all of the planets, how to take care of her space, and how to be kind to others. My young son comes home singing songs he learned at circle and can do buttons. He dresses himself including his shoes each day. I HIGHLY recommend Blue Ridge Montessori School!!!
