We have been at Country Montessori School for 8 years now and have been so impressed with quality of the education. Our child has been instilled with an incredible love of learning. She enjoys the Montessori materials and the new challenges in working with the materials at higher grade levels.The teachers are so caring and involved in each child's needs and progress. We are so confident in method and knowledge provided at the school. There is a strong sense of community with the other parents at the school. Community is not easy to find and often hard to build, but it is very strong at the school.

Our children spent 8 years at CMS. We were so sad when our son graduated from the 5th grade last year. It was an amazing school with a caring, highly dedicated and professional staff (both teachers and administration). Our children thrived in this environment! The school truly embraces its mission and vision of developing life-long learners who are independent, responsible and compassionate citizens of the world. The curriculum focuses, not only on excellent academics, but on the social and emotional development of the child as well. I highly recommend this school!
