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.
Our mission is to provide strong, authentic Montessori education in a Public-School setting. Being a charter school means that we are tuition free in grades K-8 and High School. It also means that we are required to teach state standards and participate in state mandated testing. Children must abide by the Orange County Public School’s (OCPS) code of conduct and we do have the same attendance policies, and follow the same calendar as OCPS.
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 VPK program, and being the child/guardian of active duty military personnel or a parent/guardian on our board of directors.
First time users must set up an account first by clicking on “Sign Up”. Create only one account per family, add your student(s) and then submit one application per child seeking enrollment. A confirmation email and/or text will be sent once your application has been received. If you are applying after the lottery has been run, your application will be placed on the bottom of the waitlist per grade.
IMO and IMHS are OCPS Charter Schools. Proof of residence is required for acceptance. IMO and IMHS only accept out of county students if, at the time of the offer, there are no other Orange County applications on file for the same grade. Preference is given to Orange County, FL residents.
