2. Montessori lessons, Parent/Teacher Panel, Student Panel

  • Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Coastal Montessori Charter School (CMCS) invites the public into the school to see first-hand what makes a Montessori classroom unique and how this child-centered environment facilitates self-discovery. Teachers, students and staff will be on hand demonstrating Montessori materials and answering questions.  This is a perfect opportunity for parents considering CMCS for elementary or middle school next year to experience education from a whole new perspective.

The Community Open House will take place in the midst of CMCS’ Open Enrollment period for the 2019-2020 school year.  Open Enrollment is going on now through December 14, 2018. Application for Enrollment Consideration forms must be received at the CMCS office by the December 14th, deadline. Selections for open spots will be made by public lottery in January 2019, in accordance with SC Charter School law.  Application for Enrollment Consideration forms are available at:

Coastal Montessori Charter School is proud to be part of the Georgetown County School District and offers a free public Montessori choice for county residents (1st – 8th Grade, Elementary and Middle school).

CMCS exists:

  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 Third 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 REAL 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.
  4. Preparation for High School and Life – because a diverse, complex world requires a student with a myriad of skills and talents to achieve optimum success.
