    I attended Clemson Montessori and now send my child there. Montessori is a time tested and proven program that addresses each child individually (really) and lovingly pushes them to be their best. CMS is one of the few accredited Montessori training centers in the region--the teachers here are excellent as well as the leadership and staff. The attitude towards your child's education is what makes CMS different. Clemson Elementary is a good school but for various reasons a public school just cannot do what CMS can for my child. Like most parents there are plenty of other things we could spend the money on but this is a tremendous value compared to other private schools and it is my child's education. I am thankful I had a Montessori foundation and I want my child to have it as well.

    Our child transferred to CMS after falling through the cracks in public school. Here he found a nurturing community a challenging curriculum and a blessed absence of 'teaching to the standardized test.' (In spite of this by 6th grade most students exceed local public school test scores.) Instead children are taught real problem-solving skills. Teachers communicate well with parents. The school week includes music art and Latin. There are many exciting field trips.

    My children have attended Clemson Montessori School for many years. I wholeheartedly recommend this school to any parent who is interested in placing their child in a nurturing environment that will encourage a love of learning. Clemson Montessori allows students to be curious about the world around them. This inquisitive environment promotes student-motivated exploration which leads to a deeper understanding of the subjects studied. Here learning is fun!

    A good preschool but quality of education for kindergarten and elementary is poor. My child's standardized test scores have improved by nearly 10% overall just one year after removal from this school. I only wish I had made the move earlier.
