Community Montessori

Community Montessori is a comprehensive educational opportunity for your child.
Community Montessori was established in 1968 with an emphasis on creating community among our families.
We provide a safe, nurturing, developmentally appropriate, and educationally oriented Montessori curriculum in the prepared Montessori environment.
Each child's intellectual, communication, physical, social, and emotional development is supported.
We accept children from twelve months through eighth grade. Our students often exceed grade level expectations and we welcome gifted children and understand their unique needs.
We offer a full day, year round educational program including K-8 summer session.
Our staff has the dedication, education, and experience to model the values of scholarship, concentration, task adherence and completion, delay of gratification, hard-work, orderliness, and self-discipline.
