At CHMS we have four main pillars that support who we are as a school and community. The most important pillar is safety. Our school facility and learning environments are designed from top to bottom with safety at the focus. At CHMS, you will hear us talk extensively about community. Building a sense of community starts with our school-wide and classroom specific events. Developing a child’s character is something we foster in young children, so students leave CHMS with grace and courtesy skills. Finally, the Montessori component of CHMS is the glue that holds our pillars together. As a Montessori school, we live and breathe the foundational principles of the Montessori philosophy.
The CHMS community is a second home.
While at CHMS, children develop independence, a love of learning, and a strong academic foundation. The majority of our CHMS graduates who enter Kindergarten or 1st grade are reading and writing on a 1st and 2nd grade level and doing addition and subtraction. These accomplishments tend to come from the child’s self motivation and intuitive desire to learn, rather than the Montessori Guide's instruction.Why Montessori
