Coastal Montessori Charter School (CMCS) is part of the Georgetown County Public School system offering a FREE education option to residents of Georgetown County, SC.  CMCS is governed independently as a public charter school by its own volunteer school board.  It is accountable to the Georgetown County School Board as outlined in our charter.

The CMCS Planning Committee that started the school intentionally chose the charter structure because it promotes school choice, a market-driven solution to education, localized governance, relative freedom from bureaucratic regulations, and the highest level of financial accountability to tax payers.
