A love of learning grows here
An authentic Montessori school, we educate preschool, kindergarten, and elementary children in Poway, CA. Country Montessori School (CMS) stands out as a leader in Montessori education.
As educators and parents, we aim to foster independent, confident, academically prepared, and socially responsible citizens who are lifelong learners and problem solvers. We will grow and evolve to meet the needs of our children, parents, and community.
We believe it is essential to state our values clearly and take action to support them: We educate our students in an environment where everyone feels welcome and included. As a core part of this mission, we stand against racism, hatred, and intolerance. We stand for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Honesty and Integrity: We keep our word
Life-Long Learners: We inspire an insatiable curiosity for learning
Kindness and Compassion: We are inclusive
Service to Others: We strengthen the community
Hard Work and Commitment: We strive for excellence
We’re a proud member of the Poway community!
Our students actively serve our neighborhood through several local outreach programs:
- Upper Elementary students build inter-generational relationships with Sunshine Care, a local assisted living facility.
- Trash pickup on Monte Vista Rd in front of the school keeps our campus clean and proud.
- Volunteering for Feeding San Diego.
- Taking care of our environment at the annual beach cleanup.
We look for creative and impactful ways to engage with the community, both locally and on a global scale.
