Welcome

Welcome to Discovery Woods, a Montessori inspired PreK – 6th Charter School!

Discovery Woods is a tuition-free K-6 charter school.  We also offer a tuition-based preschool for ages 3-5.  We embrace our diversity of learning styles by using a variety of effective teaching methods combined with Montessori elements. While we have the traditional combined age level classrooms, some Montessori materials, and even some Montessori training, we don’t always strictly adhere to the Montessori curriculum. We follow the needs of our students, and sometimes that means using methods and materials outside the realm of Montessori, such as technology.

Environmental Education is a big part of our mission, and we offer hands-on, engaging lessons to our students in order to enhance their love and knowledge of their environment.

Discovery Woods is a small close-knit community where every student has a sense of belonging.
