As the West Side’s Montessori school, Cherokee Heights is dedicated to guiding and growing greatness in our children. In
our Montessori classrooms, each child makes decisions about their learning based upon their individual strengths, likes and
learning styles. Through multi-grade classrooms, students develop relationships with the same teacher and classmates over a
two- or three-year period. All-day Pre-K is available to help prepare students for kindergarten at an early age. Beginning in first
grade students have physical education, which includes water safety lessons in our school swimming pool. Free after-school
programs extend learning time and help students build social skills. For the 2017-18 school year, our Montessori program will
serve Pre-K to grade 2, with expansion to grades 3-5 in the future.
