After looking at the other reviews, I realized, I am one of the happy parents. My 15 month old and my three year old, definitely coming back. I see growth and love in school. Finally teachers who speak with proper pronunciation in south Florida. English teachers with proper English pronunciation & Spanish teachers speaking eloquent Spanish. Can't wait for 2017/2018 school year. All 5 stars from our family.

My son is not coming back to school next year. This is because we are moving about 5 hours away from the school. I am a happy parent, if we were anyway closer, I would have driven to this school. I had requested a meeting with the director regarding our move. She was very positive and supportive about the transition. She reminded us that we are loving parents who respect our school policies. And she was right, I guess no matter which school we will go to, we will do our research, but in the end, be loving parent and respect new school policies, and know we will be happy parents, again!.
Thank you Montessori Ivy League for everything. Lots of love and blessing, to all the Montessori parents and children.

My daughter has been attending the school for a while and will not be attending the 2016 school year. Overall the school has been OK, but with all the changes coming and existing issues it is not a good fit for the price we are paying, which is constantly increasing.

- The classes reached the limit communicated by the director, but after the year started the class slowly crept up and has almost doubled
- The teachers are constantly changing; They are either leaving the school or switching classes
- The year always start with lofty plans and ideas, but they never stick to them. They were supposed to have Spanish Fridays and STEM but they wer canceled
- The director does not know how to communicate very well; She has working hours, but is never there during those times. When you do talk to her she doesn’t know anything that is going on and does not spend the time talking to her teachers to find out and when you try to explain things she still doesn’t get it or just doesn’t care

As you can read in others reviews the director of this school don't care about kids but about money. The good teachers left because they don't get pay enough and they are working in others daycares. Ones a kid was released by mistake to the street, their parents wasn't there!! Thanks to other mommy and God the kid come back into the front door safe. The Montessori licence it's past due and their method it's military, they don't let the kids be kids!!!
If you love your son or daughter please keep them away of this school.

I really could not be happier. I was so worried as a father. But now I am at peace. The staff and teachers made me, a single father, feel very comfortable. Thank you!

We got to the school to take the first tour after it had closed, but even then I was received with a smile and given a tour. After enrolling my one year old, we get a big smiley welcome every day. That feels so good. And that really helps since my daughter really has a hard time seperating from me. It breaks my heart to see her cry, but as soon as she enters her hallway, I don't hear her cry at all. What a relief. I am happy here, and I hope that it stays this way.

For the last two years I have the exact opposite problem of most parents of little kids do. My daughter actually wants to go to school. From the time I drop her to the time I pick her up, for the first time in my life, I don't constantly worry about her. The staff show a lot of love. And thats good enough for me.

I used to love this school but in the last year The school has changed so much; starting with the staff and the teachers. they are always changing teachers and the worst part is that all the good teachers are gone.

I can't imagine leaving anything but a great review for this school. From the moment you step in to the quality of the materials used... like a Five Star experience. We have been looking for something like this for a long time. We do feel safe with our child there.

Great Experience

I am extremely happy with the choice we made to put our son in Montessori Ivy League. My husband's other children have all attended Montessori schools and we new our son would too, but then cam e the matter of which one. As soon I spoke with Ms Salma the director of the school, I new this was the right choice. My son started classes in October when the school opened, and we have not been dissapointed. The staff and teachers are all amazing and very welcoming. Everyone knows my sons name and it is a very loving environment as well as an excellent learning environment.

Authentic response

It was quite a surprise to walk in the administration office and feel like I am instantly relaxed. The mock classroom was laid out as I have never soon before. All wood and high quality Montessori material. Although I don't know their names, I had seen the photos, so I recognized them. There was an air of sophistication, yet nothing pretentious. Unfortunately, they are only accepting a 100 students this year, so they interviewed my son, and we are waiting for the decision. Even if he is not accepted, my wife has volunteered to participate in their next event. We are both Montessorian parents, with good college education, and we want to raise the awareness in the community of what exactly a true authentic Montessori should be like.
