It is so very sad that the owner and management are not nearly as amazing as their environment is. Our unfortunate history here is very lengthy so I will just do bullet points for what we experienced. One of our sons went there for 2 1/2 years and our second son for 6 months. We then pulled them both out and went to public school. They have been thriving ever since.

We had to sue the owner to get the money she owed us. The owner is extremely unprofessional and is very difficult to deal with. The fact we had to sue her should show how far she will go regardless the fact she is at fault. In a nutshell, when we left we just wanted back the one month tuition we were owed for one of our sons. Unfortunately, we prepaid so we were at her mercy. She refused several times. I went to the Attorney General, 3 on your side, BBB, etc. She still refused to pay us what was owed. So, I was left no other choice but to take her to court. It was the principal of the matter and I had mounds of evidence proving what she owed me. Technically, they owed us over $4,000.00. We were initially going to part ways with her paying is $300 some odd dollars. I filed suit and she took it all the way until we did our pre-trial mediation. She finally agreed to pay, obviously based on the smart advice of her lawyer. She could have just parted ways with paying us the small amount we requested. Instead she ended up paying us thousands. I would sue them for discrimination and a handful of other things if I had the time and money.

You can see my full, detailed review on other sites. To summarize:

* We paid, in advance, for our 3 year old to be in their primary classroom. However, he was placed in a "transition" room, separated from the other children, which is against Montessori principles (and not to mention not what we paid for). They also napped our son against our wishes in leui of the afternoon workcycle we had enrolled him in.
* Accounting and billing is terrible. We received "ghost" charges and lost scholarship money do to their incompetence.
* When we left the school they kept our money for a month without justification. So some advice, if you do go there, do not pay in advance.

* Owner of the school accepted raffle prizes donated to the school's charity event. The items were supposed to be raffled to raise money for the school. To all of our shock, the owner herself would win several of the prizes.
* She essentially won prizes with the money that everyone else was donating.
* They would share private family matters (i.e private conversations, private parent teacher conferences, etc) with other parents at the school.
We were a witness to many of these conversations personally.
* It may appear, on the outside, to have a nice environment but don't let that fool you. Anyone can call themselves "Montessori". This school offers no value except if your looking for a very expensive babysitting service.

* Poorly managed operation
* Not a certified Montessori school
* High employee turnover
* Progress reports promised but never provided
* No goals or benchmarks to move children forward

- parents would give specific directions on what their child is to eat and not eat but they would often not honor those wishes and thought it was funny.

This school is getting away with things that would not be tolerated in most other industries because they are a private school which means one governs them. In my dispute process with them, I have come to learn that the consumer has no one to turn to should you be victimized by a private school. There is no accountability. They can do what ever they want. My situation has proven that they take full advantage of this. The fact that private schools don't have to account to anyone is very scary and needs to be changed. You think because you pay out of pocket for private school that you will be given the best treatment and education. Arrowhead Montessori has proven that this is a huge misperception.

My story is very extensive but this gives a synopsis of what we witnessed personally and experienced. I wish we would had never taken our children there. It makes us so very sad to know we subjected them to this environment.
