Message From the Head of School

One of the most important decisions we make as parents is the choice we make about our child’s education. It is a privilege to be able to offer an education that truly honors each child. Cobb School Montessori provides an experience in which children can reach their full potential, where students learn to help others, and where the academic achievement is balanced with social and emotional intelligence.

At Cobb School Montessori we believe in giving our students the world, because one day they will be the caretakers of this world. We do this by creating hands on learning opportunities, enriching our students’ understanding of different cultures, and by teaching conflict resolution strategies. The Cobb School experience offers children the best practices in education, preparing them academically to be resilient and confident learners and explorers. Our educational environment encourages the development of independence, self-motivation, leadership, and a commitment to personal goals.

The Cobb School Montessori curriculum propels young people to become citizens of the world. We continue to implement measures that better our school community in areas of equity and inclusion and strive to have our classrooms and our community reflect a diverse representation of people.

We offer a learning experience that equips the next generation with the values and skills that will be to be adaptable, creative, articulate, self-assured, and global minded adults.

We welcome you as you explore our website. Come and visit and see how Cobb School Montessori is an incredible and extraordinary place for children to learn and grow!
