Two of our children attend this school. Initially, we chose COLCMS because it is one of the few AMI accredited Montessori schools in the area. It also offers a Christian learning environment. We have been very pleased; the quality of the education in both Toddler & Primary classes has been exceptional. There is an emphasis on intellectual learning but with a spiritual component that has resonated with my kids and our family. The teachers & administration are highly qualified, wonderful, caring people. The hot lunch program (in partnership with Harry s Farmers Market Whole Foods) is amazing and has been very convenient. I prefer my children to eat organic/non-GMO foods, and couldn t find any other school that could match the quality. There are several kids with food allergies (gluten/nuts, etc.) and they are very supportive. We ve found the families to be just great people and the children are respectful, inquisitive and kind to each other - something that is reinforced within the school. There are several siblings enrolled and it is amazing to see how well they get along with each other. We highly recommend COLCMs!

This school has been a wonderful nurturing place for my children! They love to go to school everyday. The campus is beautiful and the classrooms are well equipped. My kids love their teacher and I am constantly amazed by the things they are learning.

The school offers a traditional montessori education. The facilities and materials are of high quality, but largely donated by families and church sponsorship. Daily care and maintenance (floors, bathrooms, etc.) is inconsistent. Although the teachers are loving and dedicated, the leadership has changed in recent years. Certain services found at other private montessori schools are not offered (hot lunch, before school care, school nurse, office staff, etc.) but a Stay and Play option is available. Small class size is a plus, but the room size is small. The outside play area is a natural area and not a true play space.

We are glad that me moved our daughter into this Montessori school. The school is smaller in size and thus very nurturing, with a family feel. A great small community for our daughter to thrive in emotionally, socially and academically. The progress she has made since August is tremendous. Outstanding and highly qualified Montessori teachers and school leadership! Plus the facility is wonderful - light, bright, easy outdoor access and a tranquil setting. We couldn't wish for more. Even our 1st grader wishes he could go to his sister's school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
