In 1974, The Cobb School, Montessori began as a small community of nine children under the guidance of founder Mary Lou Cobb. Today, under the guidance of Head of School Susan Angelides, the school serves 130 students from the Farmington Valley and beyond. Cobb has thriving Toddler, Primary and Elementary classes, serving children 15 months through 12 years. Today the school houses eight classrooms, the Corbett-Coletti library, an art studio, a science lab, a photography dark room, gardens, a Great Hall (with a gymnasium), athletic fields and playgrounds.

Our approach to education is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, one of the world’s most respected educators. Her philosophy, often referred to as an “Education for Life”, has been embraced by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) approved schools around the globe.

In a Montessori school, joy and delight in learning are matched by values of hard work, self-discipline and integrity. In the Montessori classroom, children develop the skills of learning not only for school, but also for life.
