Montessori in Action

The American Montessori Society has provided and inside peek into the inner workings of a Montessori Elementary and Secondary Program classroom.


All students deserve the opportunity to have the education that works best for them. PCM’s K-9th grade education program is personalized to students' needs and prepares them, through rigorous academics, a robust social emotional program, and career and life skill development, to ensure every student has the opportunity, skills, and mindset to be successful in college, career, and life. 

Data Driven

Relying on over 100 years of best practices, teachers act as learning guides while trained classroom assistants support classroom culture.

Character & Leadership 

Students build essential life skills in an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion, where differences are the norm and accountability, integrity, and a growth mindset are fostered.


PCM students develop a strong connection to their community through weekly walkabouts and project- and service-based learning opportunities.


Practice makes progress as students learn social and life skills in developmentally appropriate age groupings.


Current and future careers require systems thinking and the ability to apply knowledge in real-time.  Project-based learning builds connections across disciplines and applies concepts to real-world examples.


The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence."
