Welcome to Cascade Summit Montessori School in West Linn, Oregon, where we provide authentic Montessori education for children ages eighteen months to six years.
At Cascade Summit Montessori School we have peaceful learning environments focused on using the Montessori Method to educate and help children develop into thoughtful and inquisitive global citizens. Here, we do more than simply teach; we work to stimulate the children’s curiosity, instruct them on important life skills, and let them learn through individualized social/emotional, academic, and practical life lessons. Our school offers high quality; authentic Montessori instruction by teachers trained by MACTE accredited training centers.
Our team at Cascade Summit Montessori is committed to offering authentic Montessori experiences to your child and family. Information regarding the Montessori lessons, daily care activities (for our potty-training friends) and engaging photos are shared by the teachers through Montessori Compass. Coming this fall, as we have had to limit family participation in the classrooms as part of our enhanced safety measures, we will be implementing WatchMeGrow, offering our families online access to the security cameras in our classrooms and opportunities to observe their child absorbed in their daily activities.
At Cascade Summit Montessori School, our team works hard to guide the development of the whole child and look for ways to ensure our offerings create a foundation for future success. Our Grow Fit program is part of our commitment to give children the knowledge, motivation and experience to pave the way for a lifetime of healthy habits. We're also proud of our school gardens. Every year we plant with the children, and as a team (with the help of the children), we care for them. The children enjoy preparing and eating the fruits of our labor!

I have been involved with Montessori education for over ten years, at both the Early Childhood and Elementary levels as well as growing up in Montessori classrooms as a child. I have lived in Portland my whole life and love the outdoors and being so close to nature. I have a passion for reading, writing, knitting, gardening and cooking and love sharing those passions with the children at our school. I am also passionate about helping children become empathetic, inquisitive adults.
