Welcome to SJMS

For over 45 years, St. Joseph Montessori School, has been inspiring students to become innovative thinkers and passionate learners.  Our school is a place where children are deeply engaged in the excitement of learning, a process that both challenges and nurtures them and develops self-confidence, competency, imagination, and the desire to lead lives of positive influence. I am excited that you have considered a Catholic Montessori school for your child.

Our curriculum integrates a program that promotes higher order thinking and abstract reasoning skills through Montessori Primary, Elementary and Erdkinder programs. This remarkable program gives our students a deeper understanding of the connection between academics and the outside world and fosters an enduring love of learning.

Success in school is directly tied to the degree to which children believe that they are capable and independent human beings. If they knew the words, even very young children would ask: “Help me learn to do it for myself!” By allowing children to develop a meaningful degree of independence and self-discipline, Montessori sets a pattern for a lifetime of good work habits and a sense of responsibility. Students are taught to take pride in doing things for themselves carefully and well. I look forward to seeing you on our campus.
