About Coastal Montessori Charter School

Our Story
Having witnessed the powerful impact Montessori had on their own children, a group of ordinary parents began to dream of something extraordinary: a Montessori education available to every child. They began sharing their idea and soon other parents of children in public and private schools, community leaders, teachers, administrators and public Montessori and SC charter school experts joined in this grassroots effort. After nearly two years of planning and collaboration, a clear vision of an authentic Montessori education delivered by a public charter school took shape.

The CMCS charter application was certified by the SC Department of Education in June of 2011. The Georgetown County School Board voted unanimously to authorize CMCS less than a month later, and CMCS opened its doors on August 22, 2012, offering grades one through six to the children of Georgetown County.

CMCS now offers middle school as well as elementary school. CMCS is proud to be part of the Georgetown County School District, and is working hand-in-hand with all of its leaders in service of our children.

Why We Exist

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.

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.

To Cultivate REAL Life Skills in Children – because our children will compete globally and must be equipped with what education experts call the Seven Survival Skills:

Critical Thinking
Problem Solving
Taking Initiative
Ability to Work as Part of a Team
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.

Mission and Charter
The mission of Coastal Montessori Charter School is to produce highly-educated, self-directed, socially-responsible citizens who work collaboratively, respectfully, and peacefully as individual yet interdependent learners in a diverse and nurturing community. Through the unique combination of empirically-validated Montessori principles, localized charter governance, and open access, Coastal Montessori Charter School further aims to provide Georgetown County School District with an academically excellent, financially accountable public school choice.
