2016-2017 School Year is here
Welcome and Welcome back to those who are returning!

The Coquitlam Montessori Society (CMS) was started in 1983 when a Montessori parent liaison committee was formed to provide a communication link between the district, the schools and the parents, and has been an active component of the growth of the Montessori program. 

The Montessori classrooms differ not so much in "what is taught" but "how it is taught" and the materials used.   At all grade levels, children follow the curriculum as prescribed by the BC Ministry of Education.  The Montessori philosophy is somewhat modified to accommodate the British Columbia school curriculum and Montessori teachers participate in district in-service as well as Montessori workshops.

The Montessori program has been offered in the public school system of School District #43 (Coquitlam) for over 25 years and is available from grades K to 8.  There are 9 schools in the district that offer the Montessori program:

Aspenwood Elementary (K - 5)

Baker Drive Elementary (K - 5)

Hampton Park Elementary (K - 5)

Harbour View Elementary (K - 5)

James Park Elementary (K - 5)

Miller Park Elementary (K - 5)

Montgomery Middle (6 - 8)

Scott Creek Middle (6 - 8)

Seaview Elementary (K - 5)

We hope this website answers your questions about the Public Montessori program in School District #43 serving Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody.
