Thankful and Grateful to have found a school that offers a Montessori Elementary. When you hear the terms 'earn at your own pace', 'accepted for who you are, 'treated as you would like to be treated', 'mindful' and 'kindness' these are very true statements at this school. The Owner/Director, the Assistant Director, all of the Teachers including Specials are truly wonderful people and teachers. I am always in awe and how wonderful the lesson plans are and how the children are learning all the time, independently, small group and whole group without it feeling like they are learning. When I had heard individual learning plans, I did not know the true meaning of this until now. Each child literally has their own individual learning plans. The teachers know each child. A BIG Thank you for this learning environment.

We have three children attend QI Montessori and they all started during their infant year. Every year we are amazed at their growth and independence that comes from this school. The teachers are hands on, but allow the children to learn their way, which promotes independent and critical thinking skills.Our elementary student reads, writes, and comprehends math at least 2 grade levels above where he is at, and that is something that isn't unique in this school. It truly makes a difference sending them here, not only academically but socially as well. All of the teachers and administrators should be proud of their work and we would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a great private school in the Cave Creek area!

Our family highly recommends Quality Interactive Montessori - Spur Cross Elementary. When you hear the phrases 'learn at your own pace', '- be yourself - accepted for who you are', and 'kindness and mindfulness' just to list a few are all TRUE at this school. We love the lesson plans and how the teachers teach. It is a learning environment comfortable for children to learn from and with each other. We are thankful for Quality Interactive Montessori Elementary everyday!

This school is really as good as it gets. ALL of the staff are super professional and extremely welcoming! When I visit the school I have a permanent smile on my face because they really do make it for me and my daughter. I could not be more impressed with the staff and level of care that they have provided my daughter. The teacher to child ratio is 4/1 on most days. Everyday Ms Brittany gives us an update on our daughter, good and bad, and keeps us posted on what is going on. I would recommend this school to anyone. I trust them 100% and my daughter loves going to school. Do yourself a favor and enroll your child in QI. :)
