Offering a FREE Public Montessori Education For Georgetown County Children, 1st – 6th Grade Bus Transportation Available
About Coastal Montessori Charter School (CMCS) CMCS is part of the Georgetown County Public School system offering a FREE education option to residents using a unique teaching philosophy called Montessori. CMCS is governed independently as a public charter school by its own school board. It is accountable to the Georgetown County School Board.
Montessori is… • Multi-age classrooms • Individualized instruction and self-paced learning • Hands-on materials • Freedom within limits fostering individual responsibility • Social as well as academic development • A global perspective • Stewardship of the environment
Why We Exist 1. To Close the Achievement Gap – because all children deserve the same opportunity to be successful and because investing in our children’s success strengthens our community. 2. To Read On Grade Level by 3rd Grade – because the first few years of school children are learning to read, for the rest of their lives they are reading to learn. 3. To Cultivate Life Skills in Children – because our children will compete globally and need to be equipped with what education experts call the “Seven Survival Skills:” critical thinking, problem solving, self-regulation, taking initiative, communication, inquisitiveness, and the ability to work as part of a team.
