We are thinking of moving to Montclair, NJ. Anyone attend this school or know about it? I am Montessori teacher but I want to know about this school in particular. I've heard it is "Montessori Lite" because the principal is not Montessori trained. Can you really get in? If you don't get in for kindergarten can you try again the next year. Trying to schedule a tour...

Also, is vaccine exemption in NJ just impossible? Any information would be helpful.

I was able to get my daughter in as a 5th grade transfer from a private school. She just started there and is happy so far. Definitely Montessori lite; I run a Jewish true Montessori preschool + k, and Edgemont really is just "Montessori influenced. Vac exemption is possible--religious grounds, and other ways...talk to the Holistic Moms group; I'm friends with one of the activists if you want to contact me for her contact info.
