Montessori Schools in Lakeland and Polk County

Montessori education is centered on independence and self-direction. Montessori education is traditionally hands-on and encourages plenty of play and collaboration with the other kids in the class. Classrooms are often mixed-age (covering 2-3 years) and teach children how to work together and learn from each other as they master life skills.
Montessori schools can be free charter schools or private schools.
Below you’ll find K-12 Montessori schools. We have a separate list of Montessori Preschools in Lakeland and Polk County.
