Country Montessori School of Poway Selected as Model School forUpcoming AMS Tour


CMS welcomes visitors from the American Montessori Society (AMS) Conferenceto Campus


POWAY, CA, January 24, 2017 – Country Montessori School (CMS) is proud to announce today that the School has been honored as one of only three schools in San Diego selected by the American Montessori Society for onsite, educational tours on March 9, 2017. CMS anticipates that more than55 national and international participants will take advantage of this unique learning experience to tour the school, and meet the faculty and students.


As part of the CMS tour, participants will have the opportunity to have a physical tour of the school, as well as attend an onsite workshop by long-­‐time Montessorian and music teacher, Frank Leto. CMS had to meet specific requirements to be considered as a model tour school, including an in-­‐depth interview with AMS and an onsite evaluation tour. Students will be part of the interactive sessions with Mr. Leto and teachers and staff will assist with the onsite tour and lunch.


“We are honored to be a part of the AMS conference and to contribute to such an important event in the Montessori community,” said Adela Corrales, Head of School. “Being selected for this tour fulfills one of the dreams that we envisioned when we started CMS over 28 years ago – to be a model school for excellence in education for our students, parents and teachers. Students at CMS are part of a community, not just a school. I’m excited to be able to share this community with teachers and faculty from across the world as part of the AMS tour.”


This year’s AMS conference theme is “Montessori Beyond Borders”, and this speaks to the hearts of the students, faculty and parents of CMS, where valuing diversity, partnering with the local community and supporting global awareness with active student involvement are key to Country Montessori School’s mission.


“Country Montessori School is the best kept secret,” said Mary Ellen Kordas,Board Member and incoming President, American Montessori Society. “I was so impressed with Adela and her school. As the incoming President of AMS, I am just flat out proud. We are so appreciative of CMS hosting our visit and the conference tours. Our attendees will LOVE seeing CMS!”


CMS is in the process of launching enrollment activities for the 2017-­‐18 school year. For more information and a personal tour, where prospective parents and students can see the campus, meet the staff and discuss the School’s curriculum, please contact Sheila Walker at (858) 673-­‐1756.
