Welcome to Cascade Summit Montessori School of West Linn, OR

Thank you for visiting Cascade Summit Montessori School in West Linn, OR. My name is Karyn Gharib and I have been the administrative director here since 2007. I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree, as well as more than 20 years of experience as an educator.

One of my greatest joys as the director is creating lifelong bonds with our wonderful families and expanding our Cascade Summit Montessori “family” with each passing year. Just as the Montessori approach is a hands-on learning approach, I am a hands-on director. I am in each classroom for part of each day and enjoy working in such a happy, busy environment. Have you heard the expression “Never a dull moment?” This phrase describes our school perfectly and is one of the reasons why I love being the director. Our children are constantly learning new things and finishing major projects with a great sense of accomplishment. I want our families to feel secure knowing that we care for and educate their little ones as if they were our own. I maintain an open-door policy for anyone who has a question, a concern, or simply wants to chat.

Since March of 1999, the faculty and staff of Cascade Summit Montessori School have been providing an authentic Montessori experience to children in West Linn and surrounding cities. At our school, you will find dedicated, experienced teachers who are committed to helping each child reach his or her full potential. Three-quarters of our certified Montessori teachers have been at our school for more than eight years and they have more than 75 years of combined experience. All teachers and staff members participate in continuing education opportunities annually and update their first aid and CPR trainings every two years.
