Montessori Alumni & Notables

CMMS Alumni

Over the past 30 years, Country Meadows Montessori School has educated hundreds of students who now form an ever- expanding group of talented men and women who are leaders in many fields. Following CMMS, our students excel in their ongoing schools as scholars, athletes, and leaders in student government and the arts. We have graduates who’ve become valedictorians of their high school classes and won prestigious scholarships to top-ranked colleges and universities. Many go on to do graduate work in law, medicine, and business while others join the Peace Corps or become Montessori teachers themselves.

If you have any Alumni News you would like to share with CMMS, we are eager to hear from you. Please write, call or the office at: 1(847)244-9352.
