Welcome to ABC Montessori

Also known now as Heritage Montessori School

Telling the Truth Is NOT ALWAYS EASY.

This site has been created to tell the REAL story behind the non-profit school, ABC Montessori – which is serving McDonough, Hampton, and Stockbridge, and Locust Grove located at 483 Walker Drive, in McDonough. They have also recently opened a new school called Heritage Montessori, located at 1242 Elliott Road McDonough, 30252.  We are here to share all the details behind these buildings and the people who run this facility. We have concerns that have been shared to numerous agencies over the years – to no avail. The point of this website is to bring all issues and concerns to the forefront. 

There are a lot of amazing qualities and potential that the school honestly has had. Great teachers and parents have come through the doors ready to give 100% to the school. Most importantly, those people made some wonderful contributions to children’s lives!  

Unfortunately, due to extremely poor administration, most of the admins being related and accepting no accountability, poor organization, mismanagement, and child abuse claims have tarnished any possibility of this school recovering. 

So... if they are so bad...

Then Why Aren't They Closed?

This is something MANY OF US ASK. We believe they have/had connections that continue to allow them to escape accountability. We are hoping to prove that with this website and the content that we share.  Don’t just take OUR WORD FOR IT. Do your own research. Examine the documents and claims we make closely. 

What is ACCREDITED?

And is ABC/HERITAGE actually accredited?

ABC/Heritage Montessori has the desire to teach children 18 months – 12th grade. This means that they need  two major agencies to give them a green light, to be an attractive location for people to enroll their children:  Georgia Accrediting Commission  and  Bright From The Start.  These agencies provide credibility by having a list of standards/requirements that the school must possess to be given the “green light”.  We have proven on this website that several of the administration have been fraudulent about their credentials – which obviously gives pause to the validity of any accreditation or license they have received. 

Georgia Accrediting Commission

The mission of the Georgia Accrediting Commission is twofold: (l) to establish standards promoting instruction of high quality for children in Georgia and (2) to encourage schools to meet the established standards. GAC provides an accreditation process designed to establish and uphold standards, to strengthen the quality of education in each school, and to assure its membership and the general public that the established standards are related to the best educational practices.

The GAC serves as a means of ensuring that its membership meets certain standards for the operation and support of quality school programs in the State of Georgia. Specifically, GAC establishes standards and procedures to carry out the accreditation process. GAC also determines the accreditation status of the educational program of each school and publishes an annual list of schools with accredited programs.  The GAC Executive Director issues certificates for those schools and agencies Provisionally Accredited, Accredited Annually, Accredited, Accredited Fully and Accredited With Quality.

It is important for ABC/Heritage to have this accreditation because it means that a students credits mean something when they transfer/graduate, and they can qualify for HOPE scholarships, etc. 

As of our last check on 06/04/2020, Heritage Montessori, their new school, had already received accreditation prior to even closing on their new property. We have parents who confirm that they have helped ABC shuffle teacher qualifications in the past on paperwork in order to received their accreditation – and there are many concerns in this site that the GAC should LOOK INTO. 

UPDATE:  Emails sent to agency  asking about why this school isn’t required to adhere to the qualifications they set forth. 

Bright From The Start

Bright from the Start is responsible for meeting the child care and early education needs of Georgia’s children and their families. It administers the nationally recognized Georgia’s Pre-K Program, licenses child care centers and home-based child care, administers Georgia’s Childcare and Parent Services (CAPS) program, federal nutrition programs, and manages Quality Rated, Georgia’s community powered child care rating system.

Bright From the Start provides ABC with a license to operate, and visits to inspect the property for safety compliance, records compliance, and takes complaints for child mistreatment. 

Any facility with small children has to have this licensing to operate. 

You can see a list of ABC’s Bright from the Start violations here. 

There are two locations?

Where Are They?

But Wait...

ABC says they are in "litigation" about this website.

 Nyree Mereus launched this website in November of 2018. In May of 2019, Nyree Mereus and Tammy Hinkro were named as defendants in a defamation lawsuit by Kimberly Morey and Chase Hardin, and Kristen Hardin. 

We are currently awaiting a trial date. The school admins filed in Fulton county against Nyree (knowing she lived in Henry County), hoping it would scare her in to taking down the website. It didn’t work. When they realized that Nyree would be fighting back, they have been looking for ways to drag out to process and drain her dry of funds. It has been an ongoing, expensive battle. 

They filed for an emergency injunction soon after the lawsuit, asking the courts to direct us to take down the website immediately. Their request was DENIED, as they have yet to prove that the content on this website is defamatory. 

You can follow filing and court progress, as they are posted on our Court Proceedings page.

Kim sent this bio to me to put on the website in 2015 (see attached) for Kristen Hardin.

Some key things in the bio:

"Special Education is what I value the most. A student with needs is where my passion lays, whether it is income to learning disabilities I am an advocate for children. I have used my 10 plus years fighting for their rights, creating new path ways outside of the box to help them learn and even creating groups for parents and the community to better understand the need for positive student lead education. Helping others understand that each child’s education should be based on their needs not everyone’s needs is my goal" 🙄🙄🙄

"Georgia Pre K Teacher of the Year Award for State of Georgia in Special Education"

"Special Education Consultant Atlanta Public Schools for P-5th grade"

"American Psychology Board National Honoree for Research with Gangs and Disabilities"

"Emory Autism Research Team of top 5% of PhD was Class Head of Research and Data Consulting"

"PhD. Medical Science"

What kind of person makes up these kinds of accolades? Creates entire fake letters from medical institutions? The same kind that makes up horrible lies about a child after she's put the wheels in motion to have him beat, and then copies behavioral disorder symptoms into meetings notes that never happened. 🙄🙄 She's a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR and she has NO BUSINESS around ANYONE's CHILDREN.

Just want to point out a few things on this teaching certificate for Kristen Hardin:

1. Its nonprofessional.
2. Its only a provisional 3 year certificate in which she still has to complete the following: 3 years of sucessful educator experience; Approved program completion; Be employed by a Georgia LUA; Pass GACE Ethics Program Exit Assessment.
3. The "special education" cert expired in 2014 and she is NOT currently qualified to say she has it.

Shared anonymously:
A family member attended this school in 2016. One of their paraprofessionals has had multiple affairs with married fathers and siblings of students. They also took “donations” for an event and never returned multiple tables, cornhole boards and large tents claiming they never borrowed them, but pictures were posted with the items. Kimberly was made aware of the affairs and the girl still works there.

From a previous ABC student:

"As punishment, I had to stay late at school and wash dishes every day. I specifically remember having to cut the school's grass as punishment and getting sick from heat exhaustion and dizziness"

From a previous ABC Teacher:

"In 2017, while working as a teacher’s assistant in the “Upper Campus”, I began noticing that punishment was given to some students in the name of work ethic. In my witness, it was moreover a way for the “Upper Campus” teachers to be in control of a student. Some punishments included washing all the dishes by hand from lunch for all classrooms which would take a few hours to complete. My daughter and Kristen Hardin’s adopted daughter, Katelyn Hill, were made to complete the handwashing dishes tasks for several weeks and were often held over after school ended. Another punishment was cutting the grass with a rotary lawn mower. I saw several students being ostracized to the attic and made to stay there alone, with no assistance and no one near them. Some students were sent to the “computer lab” which was a room between the office and the back porch of the house, without consistent supervision. There was very little consistency, poor communication between administrators and with their staff, and students were given assignments and then the assignments were changed mid-way through. The students complained of this weekly, but nothing was ever done to set curriculum appropriately."

From a previous teacher at ABC:
"During meetings in the 2017/2018 school year, especially in the beginning of the year, we were told altogether as a staff to make positive reviews on behalf of the school, especially if we had children there but even if we did not. We were told to use different computers as the computers could be pinged and to go on to various review sites. This was explained to us that it was needed to help peak interests and boost enrollment as well as to balance out the negative reviews. "
