Once you have a few schools narrowed down, you might like to arrange a time with them to go in and observe the classrooms and environment so that you can get a better idea what the atmosphere is like on a day-to-day basis for the school. Also feel free to ask them if you can speak to some other parents to get their perspectives, what their experience has been like, how they decided to choose Montessori, etc.
What level of accountability to the students do the teachers have to meet curriculum goals? Is progress to these goals regularly communicated to the parents? By what means? Are there any opportunities to tailor the school day to allow for more physical activity/sports during the day?
