I attended Montesorri Community School of Charleston from preschool though sixth grade. At that time, the middle school had not yet been created. I graduated nine years ago, so this review is dated, but I've only heard great things since then. I attended the school before the new building was built. It was a very small and tight knit community. Although the school has expanded, I've been told that this is still mostly true. I loved the school so much. The Montessori element was what made it so great. It's too much to explain here, but I highly recommend independently researching the Montessori method of teaching. The teachers were all wonderful, many of whom still work there today.

We were very excited to start first Grade here. However, it was one thing after another. The staff is very unfriendly and it has an awful clique feel. The teachers practices very from class to class. Nothing uniform about procedures. Some teachers are warm and friendly, welcoming parents into the environment while others are cold and shut parents out of the environment or information loop all together. This school is beautiful to the eye, but the environment is not healthy.
The academics were excellent, but the social setting was not great. There was a lot of ostracization and bullying.
