Copyright © Countryside Montessori Charter School All rights Reserved

Established in August 2002, we are Pasco County's only public charter Montessori school. We currently serve over 300 students in grades 1 through 8. Deemed a High-Performing Charter School and rated as an "A" school for many years, Countryside Montessori instills in our students a life-long love of learning through an enriched, hands-on Montessori curriculum. More than academics alone, we strive to produce independent, respectful, and well-rounded leaders. We pride ourselves on being a small, community-oriented school with a 21st century approach to education. As a school, we promote collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving within a framework of child-directed learning. If you would like more information, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to talking with you!
