This is our third year at CMS and we feel so blessed that we found this wonderful school for our daughter. My husband and I are both in education and we knew we found a gem in CMS. There are so many things we love about this school and community. The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable in Montessori methods, are very nurturing and truly care about each child, and they hold the children accountable to the highest standards in academics, practical life skills, and behavior. We are always so impressed every time we observe the classroom. There is just this calm sense of independence and expectation of responsibility that fosters a beautiful learning environment. The level of learning that occurs over the course of the program is remarkable - children are reading, writing, doing complex math and learning about the world, all while enjoying the "work" they do. The community that Janet and her team have built is so unique to this school. It is rooted in a wonderful virtues program which instills character development in every aspect of the children's lives (valuable things like respect, integrity, empathy, etc). Parent/family involvement is also a huge part of what makes this community so special. Our daughter looks forward to going to school every single day and she absolutely loves her teachers and the friends she's made at school. CMS has laid an amazing foundation for our daughter for life that is simply priceless.
