School Within a School

Located within the 4000 Building at Camelback High School, Camelback Montessori College Preparatory is proud to be able to embody Montessori pedagogy while having access to the diverse, rich opportunities available to a comprehensive high school campus.

Our students represent a community of 90 adolescents within the school’s larger population of 2,200 students. As such, CMCP often tells visitors we have a small school feel with big school opportunities.

Our students are able to select from a wide range of electives with the main campus, including performance arts, visual arts, foreign languages, engineering, culinary, JROTC, and business courses.
