Clemson Montessori School is owned by Clemson Montessori School, Inc. It is a small, child-oriented school based on Montessori philosophy as well as other approaches.
The school offers a challenging learning environment, low student-teacher ratio, an experienced teaching staff and comfortable spacious grounds and buildings.
The school began in 1976 as a parent cooperative when a small group of parents saw the need for a school that nurtured the whole child.
The school began with 17 preschoolers and a young teacher, in a single room, in the basement of a church in Clemson, South Carolina.
Although the school has grown since 1976, it continues to address the intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and physical needs of each individual child in accordance with the Montessori philosophy.
