General School Mission

Country Montessori was founded in May 1989 by an inspired group of parents and dedicated Montessori Directresses committed to offering the very best of Montessori primary and elementary education. As an incorporated, non-profit school, CMS is operated by a Board of Directors and Board-appointed Administrator. CMS adheres to the traditional Montessori philosophy and is affiliated with the American Montessori Society. The curriculum is developed by the Primary and Elementary Directresses, and is based on Maria Montessori's educational philosophy.

Country Montessori School is committed to maintaining its leadership in Montessori education. Our mission as educators and parents is to foster independent, confident, academically prepared, and socially responsible citizens, who will be lifelong learners and problem solvers. We will grow and evolve to meet the needs of our children, parents, and community.
