At Community Montessori School, students are active participants in their education. Students learn to respect themselves, others, and their environment. Children develop confidence, self-discipline, and independence that provide the foundation for future learning through their work. CMS provides the optimal conditions for children to flourish academically, socially, and civically through an educational approach that allows time for the child to repeat and revisit lessons of interest until mastery is achieved.
We focus on the development of the whole child through environments prepared to encourage the natural desire to learn in adherence to Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) methods and principles.
The Adolescent program is designed to meet the developmental needs of each individual. Students thrive as they learn to work together. Integrated studies lead to sophisticated problem-solving and contributions to their school community. As students interact on the farm and in the local community, they understand how society is organized and learn division of labor. Beyond the academic challenges, middle school students develop compassion and learn to collaborate through experiencing how humans and nature interact.
