About Community Montessori
The public Montessori program came to Jackson in 1992 and was housed at the Parkview location on 905 East Chester Street. The program began with (88) kindergarten and 1st grade students. Each year a grade was added to accommodate a K-6th grade program and 1996 was the first year to complete that cycle. Middle school (7th & 8th) was added in 2007. The program was moved to Bemis in the fall of 2011 and became The Montessori School at Bemis. In the summer of 2016, we moved again to 716 Westwood Avenue as Community Montessori School!
Community Montessori School offers five kindergarten classrooms, six lower elementary classrooms, (grades 1-3), three first grade classrooms that will become lower elementary over a three-year span, four upper elementary classrooms, (grades 4-5), and three middle school classrooms (grades 6-8). Community Montessori School classrooms will appear different to any parent who has not experienced a Montessori environment. Our rooms are organized to provide your child with the most effective and inviting way to learn complex and interesting concepts. We choose the unique materials you see to give your child two gifts: a strong challenge to learn and a high level of support to ensure his/her success. At Community Montessori School, we all learn how to value differences, how to value our local and our global world, and how to live peaceful and sustainable lives.
