This was a great school if looking for a peaceful and caring environment for your self motivated child.
This school is PHENOMENAL! I have never been to a more beautiful, peaceful school in my life. I wish I could've gone here as a child, but I'm thrilled to have my kids go there. And it goes to 8th grade--phew, because I want my pre-teens in a setting like this at that tender time in development. Just go see it--you'll understand quickly why it's so special!
I love this school. It just makes me want to go back to school and become a Montessori teacher myself. The progress I have seen in my son over the last year is amazing! He actually likes school now and is sad on days off!
The quality of academic program is absolutly fantastic!I was speachless when my 4 year old son brought a book home and started reading it fluently.The teachers care about students and it shows.The sports opportunity are great too.
This school has exceeded my high expectations. The curriculum has really brought the best out in my child. The approach of teaching the whole child has developed my child socially in ways I didn't think possible for a 1st grader. The teaching staff is very caring, and the individual attention each child receives is remarkable.
Both of my children have attended CLMS since they were 3. They have learned so much and love going to school. The staff cares about each child and works to provide a sense of community within each classroom. We love being a part of this school.
This is a wonderful, homey, friendly place...my husband and I both feel so lucky to be able to send out daughter here! She feels safe at CLMS and her love of learning is growing by the day.
