About this school

The learning environment provided at Community Montessori differs from traditional public education in that it is an environment that allows learning to occur naturally. This environment can only occur when the teacher knows the learner’s individual strengths and interests thus creating a positive, child-centered atmosphere. The child is given the freedom to learn at his or her own pace and in the manner that best facilitates the learning process.
