An Ocoee Treasure

Welcome To Innovation Montessori

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.


Our tuition based CASA Program provides a strong Montessori foundation that enables our students to achieve their full potential, develop curiosity, creativity, and imagination, and become responsible citizens of the world

K-8 School

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.

High School

nnovation Montessori High School is a school focused on preparing students for college, career, and global citizenship. Our vision is that IMHS students will master critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, adaptability, a global perspective, purpose, and the ability to transfer knowledge and skills across subject matter lines in order to become the visionary creators of the fluid and fast-paced future. We believe that all students will benefit from and be valorized by an academically rigorous program. To demonstrate success, IMHS students must fulfill important academic requirements and take responsibility for their own learning.
