  • Centennial Montessori School was formed with the sole purpose of creating an exemplary program dedicated to assist the individual child in their quest to reach their full potential.
  • As part of this mission, we trust in the child's innate desire to become more than he currently is and we see our role as providing a loving guide to help that child follow his natural inclinations and engage in an environment specifically tailored to his passionate quest to understand his world.
