I'm sad to report that we had a horrible experience at Cougar Mountain Montessori. We had registered our five year old to attend there in the fall of 2011. To help her get used to the new school we decided to have her attend the summer session two days a week. Initially she was very excited to start the new school. A few weeks into it though, she began complaining that she didn't want to go. In August she began to tell me about things that were happening at the school. Specifically, inappropriate comments being made toward her by one teacher in particular, and even reported being drug accross the floor by her arm. This alarmed me since a few weeks previous she had come home from school with nursemaids elbow, an injury that comes from having your arm pulled on. She was in pain and unable to use her arm. We had to have it popped back in place. Upon remembering this I decided to take the compliants and go straight to the school that morning. I met with the owner's daughter and then the owner and the teacher the next day. The teacher denied everything and the school took no responsibility whatsoever. In fact, the owner basically said that our child had made the whole thing up saying, "children embellish". We notified the school that we would not be attending in the fall. Based on the mistreatment of our child we demanded our tuition, which we had prepaid for the month of September be refunded. They refused to do so and have since ignored our attempts to contact them and come to an amiable resolution. There are too many other great schools in the area to risk it. We are very disappointed not only in our experience, but in the way they have handled our complaint.

We were new to the area last Jan 09 and were previously in another montessori school. I thought we were at a good school previously but after a short 1-2 months my kids were taking in much more learning and showing so much more progress at their age level. Cougar Mtn. Montessori staff are wonderful to work with and the teachers are truly committed to the learning process. My son is in his 3rd yr and my daughter in her 2nd year of montessori school. They love the additional enrichment programs as well including yoga, tumble gym, & music.

Both my children attend CMM, and I couldn't be more pleased. They are both excelling in social and academic areas. Plus, they love going to school. What more could a parent ask for?

I would recommend CMM for anyone looking for a loving, caring and education environment for their child. My son has been attending for 2+ years and loves it. He enjoys going to school each day and we are happy he is with such great teachers everyday.

We love Cougar Mountain Montessori. The teachers are great and our daughter is excelling in both reading and math. We wanted a program that was enriching in both social and academic development, and CMM has both. They also have special music, movement and yoga programs.

The children leave after kindergarten far ahead of public school, and it seems like many gone on to gifted programs or schools, for example Openwindow and the Prism program in the Bellevue School District. (In talking with other parents, these are 2 schools where they have an older child who went to CMM during preschool). So I am very encouraged about this too.
