Fort Monroe was never in the best part of Hampton. Take that as you will; as already pointed things might be great inside of the complex but in and around it could be sketchy.

I can't speak to Fort Monroe other than it's a cute area to visit. I did notice you were asking about Montessori. My kids (9 and 11) have been raised in Montessori their whole lives. Our 1-year old will be entering The International Montessori School here in town in September. I've visited and know it is a true Montessori environment. If you are considering this school, do not delay applying. They always have a wait list. Good luck

So I lived in Fort Monroe from 2012 to 2014. It's a pretty cool place to live. Quiet, white-collar, family oriented. I don't think anywhere else in Hampton comes close to quality of life.
Phoebus and Hampton in general aren't great but Fort Monroe is pretty awesome.
We lived in waterfront town home. I watched the ships come and go from around the world. The sunsets and sunrises were pretty. I would ride my bike around in the fort at night. Creepy.
If I were going to live in Hampton Roads again, I don't think there is anywhere else I would want to live.

Ft. Monroe is a beautiful spot with quaint historic architecture and now a micro-brewer, great beaches and a good restaurant (Deadrise). I Was stationed there when it was active Army in the 90s and I'm getting ready to retire to the area soon. I feel a lot of area natives sell
That part of Hampton short. Phoebus is on its way up with a great performing arts venue in the American theater and a vastly improving Main Street area (Mellen St.) that includes some great bars and restaurants with more on the way. There is lots of new construction of beach type homes up the road in Buckroe. Add to that Queen St. and the Marina area of downtown Hampton, where Hilton is about to renovate the hotel, and picturesque Chesapeake Ave and I'd say the waterfront areas of Hampton, long greatly under appreciated, are poised to boom. If this area existed in the Philadelphia region where I now live, located as it is all on beautiful water front areas, people would be snapping up all the cheap vintage frame houses to renovate already.
