More than a Decade of Excellence!

Lakeland Montessori Schools are excited to announce that once our AMS (American Montessori Society) pending accreditation paperwork is received, we will be the first and only AMS accredited public Montessori school in the entire nation for children age 3-15! 

Serving Students Age Three through Eighth Grade
As a Tuition free (K-8) Public Charter Montessori Program

Lakeland Montessori Schoolhouse is celebrating its twelfth year as a fully implemented public Montessori school of financial and academic excellence. All of our classrooms, age 3-15, are included in our full member school status through the American Montessori Society (AMS). Once our pending accreditation is received we will be the first and only AMS accredited public Montessori school in the entire nation for children age 3-15. We are committed to helping fully implemented public Montessori education become a reality for more children across the nation by serving as a model public Montessori school.

In September 2003 our Lakeland Montessori Schoolhouse Charter School Application was approved by the Polk County School Board, the Polk County School Board Charter Review Committee, and the Polk County Desegregation Oversight Committee. In July 2014 Lakeland Montessori Schoolhouse was again reviewed in all areas and granted an additional 7 year renewal charter due to our excellent results and reputation. As required by the U.S. Department of Education and the State of Florida Department of Education, Charter school applications are inspected for compliance with educational laws in 25 areas such as Academic Design, Student Performance, Governance and Management, and Charter Implementation Plan.
