Honoring Dr. Maria Montessori’s reverence for the natural world and belief in its capacity to inspire learning, Cathedral Montessori provides an atmosphere for students to examine, explore, protect, and cultivate their natural surroundings with sensitivity to its relationship to the global environment.

At Cathedral Montessori School, we teach our students by example to preserve and protect the environment. The garden provides continued education. In the classroom, we conserve our resources by recycling and reusing materials whenever possible. We model conservation by using cloth instead of paper napkins and by teaching students to use a refillable cup, which they wash each day. We use only non-toxic cleaning products and often use natural cleaners (such as vinegar and baking soda) in place of conventional products.
