CMMS has allowed my daughters love of learning to grow and mature.  In all seriousness, my daughter would wake up everyday excited to go to school; she has loved CMMS and is very sad that her time there is over. She has loved being a part of a small community that cares about learning and enjoys school. You won’t find a more welcoming learning environment anywhere.  Every moment seems to be a teachable moment at CMMS. Investing in my daughter’s education while her brain was young was the best decision I/we have ever made.”

“But, above all it is the education of adolescents that is important, because adolescence is the time when the child enters on the state of manhood and becomes a member of society.”
Maria Montessori (From Childhood to Adolescence)
