Christ Methodist Day School first opened its doors in 1958 to 75 kindergarten students. Since then, the school has continued to grow and thrive right where it was founded: along Poplar Avenue, in the middle of Memphis, just about halfway between FedExForum and Shelby Farms Park.

CMDS is known for providing a foundation of strong academics balanced with an emphasis on spiritual growth, emotional development and personal integrity.


Choosing Primary

· An elementary school invests all of its resources in the development of young children.

· An elementary school gives parents time to get to know their child.

· An elementary school preserves childhood. Our environment provides a safe place for students to take risks, explore their God-given talents and discover their likes and dislikes.

· An elementary school offers opportunities for young students to lead.


Choosing Co-Ed

· A co-ed school is reflective of the real world.

· A co-ed school provides opportunities for friendships between boys and girls.

· A co-ed school fosters leaders. Boys and girls are given the same opportunities to collaborate and solve problems together.

· A co-ed school teaches to the individual child. We break through the stereotypes typically associated with how boys and girls learn differently. CMDS teachers know each child as an individual and customize activities to reach every type of learner.


Choosing CMDS: What Sets CMDS Apart

· TEACHERS: CMDS is a destination workplace. Dedicated teachers embody the school’s nurturing atmosphere.

· ACADEMICS: The school’s inquiry-based, hands-on curriculum is designed to foster all the things that set children up for success. A STEAM Initiative propels students to seek out rather than receive information.

· ENCORE: The Encore program includes a variety of Fine Arts classes as well as STEAM offerings. Encore expands and complements the core CMDS curriculum, immersing students in an elementary, liberal arts-style experience.

· GRADUATES: CMDS graduates matriculate to a variety of Memphis-area schools, so after 6th grade, they automatically have friends all over town. Beyond that, a pursuit of educating the whole child leads to well-rounded students who are ready for their next chapter.
