I am most happy to welcome you to the Chesapeake Montessori School website. Parents will find information about activities at school and visitors will learn about the Montessori philosophy embraced by the CMS community.

Your journey through our website will introduce you to Montessori practice, CMS programs for children and adolescents, and our goals of being a good neighbor and responsible citizens as we practice service to the people and environment in which we live.

I hope to share with you our belief in the inherent potential within each child and young person. To that end, CMS has developed the first Montessori adolescent program in the Annapolis area. We want to show the satisfaction and joy that comes from work and community through the information in this website. But the best way to learn about us is to see Montessori in practice, so we encourage you to visit CMS to see the vitality and happiness in our learning community.

You will see environments designed to meet the needs of children from 18 months to twelve years old and adolescents from 12 to 14 years old. We work together as a community of adults to ensure rich environments for our students.

Montessori education has proven over more than 100 years to be an approach that supports the social, emotional, intellectual, and academic growth of children; it is the finest gift you can give to your child.

Thank you for your interest in Chesapeake Montessori School. Enjoy your tour of our website. Please come and visit us and see Montessori at CMS for yourself.

With kind regards,


Deborah Bricker
Head of School
