Community Montessori Charter School was approved by the Dehesa Elementary School District in June, 2012. CMCS currently serves approximately 375 students in grades K-8. Students attend one of five learning centers located throughout San Diego county, or are on a Montessori home study program.
CMCS is committed to respecting the talents and interests of the individual child while implementing Montessori teaching principles. Our goal is to foster in our children a strong sense of independence, creativity, respect for others, appreciation of diversity in people, and a deep and joyful love of learning.
