Excellence in Montessori education. Read 24 Google reviews.Here are a few:•Do not hesitate. If you want a Montessori education for your kids, this is the school. We were there for 4 years and loved every minute of it. From the administration, to the teachers to the education, it was a wonderful experience.•Both of my kids have been attending Coconut Grove Montessori since they were toddlers. There is no place I would rather them be. The classrooms are beautiful & everything is very clean. The Montessori education they have received, and will continue to receive astonishes me. My kindergartener is already doing long division, and reading without issue. Their school environment has created independence in both of them, and they work hard to try to figure things out on their own. Every teacher & the directors truly care about all the children, and it shines through my children's love for them all. I highly recommend CGMS for any parent looking for a loving and nurturing environment in which their children can learn to their fullest potential.•Coconut Grove Montessori is an outstanding school. The skills and friendships she gained there assisted her in elementary school and at Carrollton where she now attends. I can enthusiastically recommend Coconut Grove Montessori.•My oldest son was part of the first graduating class! I cannot express the gratitude I have for the teachers and staff at CGMS. Although my son was a bit shy, he flourished there!!! Ten years later, my twins followed in his footsteps! We wouldn't have it any other way. CGMS is the best decision we ever made. The teachers prepared our children for their futures. Our kids were accepted into every single school we applied to and we attribute that to the exceptional curriculum and teachers at CGMS. Most importantly all the teachers and staff are so nurturing and caring!! They gave our kids the best education and the foundation for future success!! We LOVE CGMS!!!!

From Business: Christopher Columbus High School is a private, Roman Catholic, college preparatory school located in Miami. Founded in 1958, the school provides academic programs…
I absolutely LOVE this private school. My children are now going into 1st grade and Kindergarten and have been with the school since age 2. The Christian values and curriculum that are taught to the children are wonderful and have exceeded my expectations, as an example, my 1st grader's SATs in Kindergarten stated that she's at a 2nd grade level!!! The children literally come out of Kindergarten fully reading and writting cursive! I'm not sure what those that posted reviews about money being an issue are talking about, when comparing this school and it's history to other schools in the surrounding area, the school is very reasonably priced and you kow you are getting the BEST education for your child/children! "It's better to build a child, than repair a man." and I will live by that with keeping my children at Rainbow!
The teachers and administrators are very loving! But, that cannot make up for the lack of follow through and constant changing of teachers without notification. My son is very shy and I had spent months working with his teacher to help him feel comfortable. We return from Christmas break and she is gone – He also loved the assistant teacher and she was replaced without notice as well. When the new teacher(s) started they also stopped writing in their composition books – My Son has not traced a letter in six months. I believe they are a little too relaxed. Also my children are constantly sick – I do not believe it is as clean as it needs to be. My son has been going for almost 9 months and still cries when I tell him we have school. I feel that is a money driven effort.
Please note that you will not be respected in this school. It is run by a family and they do not communicate to parents at all. You can send 100+ emails and/or call them, they will either promise you something that will never happen, will lie to you in the face or will not respond at all and ignore you. Materials you are required to bring will never be used and will not be returned. The portfolio they promise, will never be made. Dirty place, the teachers come and go, and some cannot even speak English. Children come home with dirty clothes, diapers and the diapers get mixed up all the time. If they make a mistake in the expenses, good luck getting your money back! Look around and do not waste a dime on this school.
I find many of the reviews below unfair. My daughter has been attending since she was 1 (now 3) and we're very happy. She is an only child and our miracle baby, so we were verrry picky about who we would trust with her care. I'll admit, their administration may not be optimal, but they do a great job with the children (hence the 5 stars). They're constantly improving the classrooms and play areas, and their curricula unlike any other comparable school out there. To top it off, parents receive a "daily experience" report which include a narrative of what's happened during day along with pictures, and children's quotes. Definitely worth the tuition in my book.
This school is a piece of heaven on earth. Great principal, great teachers, and most of all a nurturing environment that allows students to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. Highly recommend to parents that are tired of overcrowded and insensitive schools and want their children to be challenged academically. Both my kids (prek 3 and 4th grade) love going to this school every day.
Excellent School, I brought My Daughter Victoria Faith to join this school from Mexico....I was seeking to find a Christian School with Family values and good academic standard and found it here on top and beyond my expectations, the Principal is a hard working and extremely caring person and the Teachers are amazing...
If you're looking for a great education for your kids and a perfect learning enviornment, then this is the school. They have a small student base so kids get more of an education! Very nice staff and that really menas something today. Would definately recommend!
Thanks to this school I was able to go to college. I dropped out in 10th grade and didint think i would ever go to college. I got my high school diploma from here and im about to finish my AS at miami Dade College
