Joining our community as a volunteer is easy (and required)
Innovation Montessori Ocoee began as Montessori of Winter Garden Charter School in 2011. Our school was founded when a group of dedicated Montessori parents, from a local, private Montessori primary school, decided that they were willing to do what it took to create an opportunity for their children to continue their Montessori education beyond kindergarten. They applied for a charter, rented a suite in a strip mall and opened the doors to our public Montessori school in August of 2011.
Innovation Montessori Ocoee is a school created for children, by parents, using one of the most child-centered educational philosophies in the world – Montessori. Children are at the heart of everything we do and the best interests of our students are the basis of every decision we make.
Charter schools are funded differently than district schools and, as a Montessori school, our expenses for staff and materials run higher than traditional schools. We bridge the gap with the help of our families. Innovation Montessori has a mandatory minimum 20 volunteer hour requirement per family, and we love to put our community’s talents to work for our school.
