Strategic Plan

Lakeland Montessori’s Strategic Plans are aligned with the documents that guide the operation of our school – the Essential Elements,  the Lakeland Montessori School Blueprint, and the American Montessori Society and Cognia accreditation standards.

Currently, we are creating a renewed Strategic Plan as part of our American Montessori Society & Cognia re-accreditation process. On August 27, 2022, the Lakeland Montessori Governing board adopted the three high-level strategic plan goals below. Objectives, timelines, and budgets will be developed and adopted by October 1, 2023. We invite all stakeholders’ input on the creation of objectives and timelines during this process. Stakeholder comments can be added within our working document.

  1. High Fidelity: Lakeland Montessori guides students to become academically successful leaders who contribute to society – by maintaining an accredited Montessori program.

  2. Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: Lakeland Montessori will be a small school that reflects the Polk County Public School system student population.

  3. Sustainability: Lakeland Montessori will remain fiscally and operationally sound.
