Amazing experience across the board. Children excited to go to school daily and have a fire and desire to explore and learn. Not only is this school developing good students, but good citizens of the world.

my experience at this school is definitely a 10/10. i myself attended this school and am very proud to say that in my opinion, everyone should send their child there. everyone is nice, caring, and has a hunger for learning. this school has grown so much over the years and currently has bees, chickens, an American Elm, blackberries, tomatoes, apple orchard, rain garden, butterfly garden, bioswale, rain water tank, stream, and 13 acres of land!!!

Exceptional! My daughter would not be the amazing human being she is today without CMS.

As a parent of a Primary student who would not start Kindergarten until next Fall, I am incredibly happy with the education that my daughter is receiving in her second year of three in the Primary level (third year is considered Kindergarten). She is not only learning the basics of "reading, writing and arithmetic", she is learning geography, practical life skills, humanities and manners! As a child who possibly has ADD, she is learning to extend her concentration and control her emotions as well. The guidance given by her teacher as well as the other staff is kind, yet firm and consistent. I can not say enough positive things about this fantastic community that our family is proud to be a part of.

I am a father of two children (ages 2 and 5) enrolled at CMS and am very impressed with the program.It was my wife who suggested we try CMS; as usual, I'm glad I followed her lead.Going in, I had little knowledge of Montessori. The school does a good job of explaining the process to the parents, though, so I now feel a bit more informed. For those of you who are passionate about the Montessori philosophy, I will say that the staff at CMS takes the following of AMI very seriously and the teachers are all fully trained/certified/etc; the students here truly are getting a rigorous Montessori education.That being said, I am not someone who is wedded to any one particular educational philosophy. Rather, I have just two key requirements for my children's school:1) a social/community environment that promotes the growth of happy, kind, well-rounded children;and2) an educational environment that encourages curiosity and learning.In my opinion, CMS meets both of these requirements more effectively than any other institution I've observed elsewhere (including in my own education.)1: Community - Both of my children love going to school. They have bonded with their teachers, and both know and like their peers in their class. The 3-year cycle helps foster a sense of belonging since the kids really get to know one another and develop close friendships. It also likely helps that parent involvement is such a big component of this school - the kids soon know not only each other, but their parents as well, furthering the sense of community.2 Education: - Both my kids are still pre-K age, so this is harder to assess, but there is no doubt what they are learning at school is sparking their curiosity. They both come home talking about what they learned, proud of what they have accomplished, and eager to practice reading/addition/etc some more with us at home.PROs: -Strong sense of community-Children get along well together and develop strong friendships-High-quality education, and students are actually interested in learning (not just for a test)CONs:-Expensive, as compared to a free education in public schools. Still, our family has felt it worth the expense, and our children will both continue once they reach school age.-Parent involvement is generally a key component here, which could be a deterrent if a busy schedule makes this a challenge.
