I agree, and I will add that this report is very soft for what my kid and I went through because of this school. She lost the year in all levels including learning French. Only the English teacher speaks English, no one else in the hole school! You can call it anything except "school" sorry, but it was a horrible experience indeed.

Wow, thanks for the heads-up. I now know that just because a school puts 'Montessori' in its name, doesn't mean it really is a Montessori school. What a world.
