Cypress Junction Montessori encourages the development of the whole child by providing a comprehensive Montessori education.

We do this through:

  • Cultivating independent thought, foundational skills, awareness of their environment, empathy for others, social ease, and high self-esteem in every student.
  • Establishing within each child the intellectual, emotional, and physical rigor needed to become a self directed learner, flexible thinker, and creative problem solver.
  • Supporting each student’s ever-increasing curiosity about the world in which they live.
  • Instilling the values and skills necessary to help our students to grow up to be successful global citizens.
  • Bringing academic standards and student passions together to fuel a desire to learn.

Cypress Junction Montessori sets children on a path that embraces creativity, builds self awareness and helps them develop the academic skills, physical tools and personal confidence necessary for lifelong success.
