School Notes

  • More than a century ago, Maria Montessori enlightened the world to the immense capabilities of the child. She showed us that children are driven by natural tendencies, which compel them to move through the world, exploring and discovering. At Chesapeake Montessori School we offer prepared environments, guided by a trained teachers, that provide children and adolescents innumerable opportunities for exploration and discovery. We guide children intellectually, academically, socially, and emotionally in their preparation for life.
  • Since 1977, CMS has been serving families in the greater Annapolis area. We believe that education is an exciting process of discovery that builds a foundation for critical thinking, self-discipline, and a life-long love of learning. We understand that children learn best when they are motivated by their own innate need to explore and discover. We respect that children and adolescents should be encouraged to progress at their own pace, regardless of age or ability. We are committed to practicing authentic Montessori to help children and adolescents reach their full potential, while instilling values of civic responsibility and compassion. CMS graduates understand that they are an important part of society and possess the knowledge and skills to make a difference in the world.We`re looking for empathetic children, teens, and parents who value self-construction and intellectual curiosity.
  • We seek those who are invested in the building and maintenance of strong community, and want to create a diverse and inclusive culture. We are a school community that offers "schooling" at a high standard mathematics, English language arts, science, the humanities, geography, geometry, fine/performing/industrial arts, and French language arts and, more importantly, we offer the "invisible scaffolding" that impels young people to become good, noble, and adaptable citizens in their own time and place. We care about the whole child, or teen, more than we do tests scores and grades.
