“Community Montessori Charter School (CMCS) is excited to open a learning center in the strong Montessori community of Poway. A waitlist has formed every year for our program and parents have been asking us to expand into north inland San Diego,” said Roland Yung, School Director.

Enrollment for the Poway Learning Center, in addition to the Santee and Escondido Learning Centers, will begin February 23, 2015 at 8:30am for the 2015-2016 school year. Interested families are welcome to apply and can reside anywhere in San Diego County.

Applications will be available online at and in the administrative office located at 1441 Montiel Road, Suite 143, Escondido, CA. All completed applications submitted to the School Registrar by 3pm on March 6, 2015 will be included in the first lottery for the 2015-2016 school year. Enrollment applications received after this deadline will be placed in subsequent lotteries.

The Community Montessori program has become sought after by many parents looking for a student-driven and personalized Montessori education. With locations in Escondido and Santee, the growth of CMCS in Poway is attributed to the talents of the state certified educators, their use of the Montessori Method, and implementation of Positive Discipline. The goal is to foster a strong sense of independence, creativity, and respect for others, appreciation of diversity in people, and a deep and joyful love of learning.

Element Education, Inc. manages Community Montessori Charter School and Dehesa Charter School (serving home- school families). Both schools are tuition-free. For more information, please visit to explore a list of educational program offered in San Diego, Riverside, and Orange County.
