• Learn more about Community Montessori!


    The public Montessori program, which has existed in Jackson since 1992, moved to 716 Westwood Avenue as Community Montessori School in 2016. Since we are not a zoned school, enrollment occurs through a lottery process. Parents may submit an open enrollment application and the lottery will take place in March. 


    At CMS, we all learn to value differences and we focus on valuing our local and global worlds and living peaceful and sustainable lives.
