Ten minutes from the Blanchette Bridge and only 15 minutes from Lake St. Louis and Wentzville, Campbell’s beautiful 6-acre campus is situated at the end of a quiet street next to a park. The magnificent grounds include nature trails, a large deck, a greenhouse and garden areas.
Campbell has a commitment to honor the welfare of children and to use the Montessori approach to learning at all stages of development. Programs are available for students 18 months through 14 years. At this time, we have a class for Toddlers (18–30 months), three Primary Classes for preschoolers (2 ½–6 years), two Lower Elementary classes (6–9 years), one Upper Elementary class (9–12 years), and a developing Middle School Class (12–14 years).
Campbell’s Parent Group is composed of several committees including Yearbook, Spirit Wear, Office Help, Hospitality, Maintenance, Gardening, and Decorating. For the elementary students, parents conduct Field Day in May. Activities for families such as Campbell’s End of the Year Picnic, Family Campout and Bonfire, Movie Night, Crazy Bowl and Skate Night are offered through the Parent Group. They also sponsor charitable events such as the January Toy collection. Adult activities the group helped to organize during the 2011-12 school year include Trivia Night, Enchantment Under the Sea Parent Prom Party, and a night out at Ferguson Brewing Company.
In addition to academics, Spanish, drama, art, music theory, and vocal music are incorporated into the school day. Extra-curricular activities include Girl Scouts, a FIRST Lego Robatics Team, and private instrumental and voice lessons. Campbell students who take private music lessons have performed during the Festival of Lights at Our Lady of the Snows and participate during the summer in the Annual Mid-America Music Association Festival.
Elementary students may participate in two ongoing physical fitness programs: Girls on the Run, a club for girls which includes service projects along with health education, and Read, Right and Run, which combines reading 26 books, doing 26 "right" deeds, and walking or running 26 miles. Our entire community holds an annual food drive we call Children Giving to Children, which benefits a local food pantry. Elementary students often engage in service projects. During the 2010-11 school year, they raised $1,311 to donate to the Atai Orphanage in rural Uganda..
Campbell is a not-for-profit school. Quality standards for the school and teachers are maintained by affiliation with the Association Montessori International.
