At Innovation Montessori, we are committed to providing a solid Montessori foundation in a public school setting. Our Montessori model of education makes us an Alternative Educational Model school. Montessori is a very particular method of whole child education and we STRONGLY urge families to familiarize themselves with Montessori educational philosophy and to tour our school before applying for the lottery.

Please be advised that Innovation Montessori has a strong culture of giving; our families are required to donate a minimum of twenty volunteer hours per year, but many volunteer much more. Families who fail to meet the volunteer hour requirement may lose placement for the following school year.

Want to learn more about what makes the Montessori experience so unique? Ready to apply and want to get a real feel for the magic that happens in our classrooms? Newly accepted and interested in getting your questions answered about what your child’s day will soon be like?

We encourage you to make an informed choice about your child’s education and to proactively seek answers to any questions you may have so that your child can become excited and well-prepared to join us here at Innovation Montessori. The best way to do this is through touring our school. Tours are held at scheduled times and you must reserve your space.

School tours scheduled take place at our new Ocoee campus location: 1644 N. Lakewood Ave. Ocoee, FL 34761

Please sign in at the front office when you arrive. We look forward to showing you Montessori in action!

In accordance with our charter, Innovation Montessori may reserve 50% of open slots for students with previous Montessori experience. Be sure to indicate YES to Montessori experience on your application (you will be required to submit a supporting document). Other factors affecting lottery placement include having a sibling already enrolled, having participated in Innovation Montessori's (MWGCS) VPK program, and being the child/guardian of active duty military personnel.
