Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Cascade Summit Montessori School in West Linn, OR where we provide a Montessori education for children ages 18 months to six years. My Name is Rose and I am the school director.

Cascade Summit Montessori School is a peaceful learning environment focused on using the Montessori Method to educate and develop children. Here, we do more than simply teach; we work to stimulate children’s curiosity, instruct them on important life skills, and let them learn through individualized sensorial, academic, and practical life lessons.

Our school is affiliated with the American Montessori Society and each classroom is led by a certified Montessori educator with a MACTE accredited Montessori Early Childhood Teaching diploma.

We encourage parents and relatives to participate in their child’s education by volunteering in the classrooms, for community events, and with our active PTO committee. Our PTO helps us organize community and fundraising events.

Schedule a tour to learn more about Cascade Summit Montessori. We look forward to meeting you!

Annie Ahn Bio, Lead Directress

I was born in South Korea and came to the United States in 1992 to obtain my master's degree. While I was researching approaches to early childhood education, the Montessori method captured my attention and led me down the path of becoming a Montessori teacher. I enjoy both outdoor and indoor activities and enjoy cooking foods from different cultures.

I have three beautiful children that all completed their primary education with Montessori Unlimited. I truly believe that the Montessori education was a strong foundation for my three children because they are very successful in their educations today. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, baking, and traveling.
