Welcome to SJMS

For 50 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 our Catholic Montessori school for your child.

Our Montessori curriculum integrates a philosophy that promotes higher order thinking and abstract reasoning skills for students 3 years old through the 8th Grade. This remarkable program gives our students a deeper understanding of the connection between academics and the outside world. We are a community that understands and values the connection between younger and older students.

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 declare: “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. St. Joseph Montessori School fosters an enduring love of learning.

I look forward to seeing you on our campus.
