Poor. There is a tremendous amount of turnover at this school with teachers, students and the administration. Montessori in theory sounds beautiful but in practice, it doesn't work in a charter school setting. It has become a dumping ground for kids that had difficulties in a traditional public school. The boy/girl ratio is imbalanced and children are challenged to find friends due to the small size of the school. The classrooms are loud and unruly. The math curriculum is outdated and will leave your child behind when they transition out this school. Parents are CONSTANTLY asked for money! Don't waste your child's learning experience at this school. St. John's County has wonderful schools to choose from and sadly, this is not one of them

I’ve had children at SAPMS from when it opened until now. I love that the school actually cares about implementing authentic Montessori in a public (charter) school. Socially it is everything Montessori is supposed to be. Academically our now 9th graders (who attended SAPMS through 6th) are excelling. Highly recommend!
I am an alumni of SAPMS. I attended this school from when it opened through 6th grade. I loved my teachers and they were very kind and caring. The Montessori curriculum is wonderful because it is child-led; each child gets help when an how they need it without having to rush through standards. Because of this the students love learning and school. All my work at SAPMS was beautiful and satisfying, unlike the worksheets that I receive at traditional high school. The math materials in particular are very nice to use and are so helpful in understanding things.
Being in one classroom for three years allows your to have close, long-lasting friendships. You also stay with a teacher who knows you and your needs. Small classroom sizes means that everyone in a class knows each other and is able to get help from the teacher.
I did not go to a middle school. I am now in 9th grade in the AICE program, and have no difficulty understanding my work and getting A's because of my Montessori training.
