The Montessori philosophy is based upon mutual respect and belief in the child. The basic aim of the Montessori approach is to cultivate the natural curiosity and delight in discovery that is present in all children.
Within each carefully prepared classroom environment, children are able to explore and learn with all of their senses as they acquire the confidence and motivation they need to fulfill their greatest potential. Specially trained Montessori teachers present hands-on educational materials that are specifically designed to support children’s development, build on their interests and nurture their enthusiasm.
Our school community is a place where all children are valued as individuals. We believe that each child has a diverse mix of feelings, ideas and interests that deserve to be honored. By respecting and nurturing the uniqueness of each child we strive to build a foundation for a lifetime of creative learning and living.

CMMS has an academically competitive curriculum. We cover all the same basic core curriculum as other schools. What we teach in the core curriculum is the same; how we teach it is different. We use a lot of manipulatives and we individualize lessons so that students who are advanced can work ahead and those who need extra help get it. We also teach geography, geometry, astronomy, geology and the development of life on earth in ways that capture the interest and imagination of young students. Students also learn conflict resolution, communication and leadership skills.
