About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Carson City Montessori Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Carson City Montessori Charter School Reviews
Carson Montessori is a hidden gem amongst the Carson City School District. Where much of the CCSD schools are running on scripted programs, the teachers at Carson Montessori implement creative teaching techniques and practical life skills in each of their lessons. Rooms are transformed into rainforests or ocean wonderlands, the side yards are transformed into anthropological digs, and the library is transformed into a five-star restaurant complete with top-notch entertainment all planned and carried out by the students. It’s no wonder the school has maintained a status of “Distinguished” and “High Achieving” over these past years. Parents are always welcomed into the classroom to volunteer or observe and teachers are always willing to sit down with parents and give feedback regarding their child. Carson Montessori is an excellent school because of its excellent staff, strong leadership, and challenging creative lessons. This gem, Carson Montessori, continues to be a shining stone amongst the rocky terrain.
