Odyssey Montessori follows an approach to education that has existed for more than 100 years, yet supports development of 21st century skills.
 Montessori education, far from being limited to the younger child, offers students of all ages the opportunity to learn and express themselves in highly individualized and meaningful ways.
This learning environment allows for a deeper and richer experience, one in which creativity, spontaneity, responsibility, and a desire to learn are cultivated.
At Odyssey Montessori, our students open the door to the future by opening their minds.
We serve students from 3yo to 8th grade.
 Our school is a non-sectarian, 501 (c) (3) organization and was founded in 2001.

School Notes:

We currently serve children from pre-K to 8th grade.  We have three classes and students remain with those classes for three year cycles.  We like to call our classes “learning environments” because they are carefully structured environments that are designed to enhance our student’s educational experience. Our Early Childhood learning environment ranges in age from 3 years old to 6 years old. Typically, by age 6 students will join the Elementary I classroom learning environment and will remain there until they reach age 9. At age 9 students begin working in the Elementary II class. Once students enter the Elementary 1 they begin to have frequent outings (field trips) that build upon subjects they are studying in class. At the elementary level, Dr. Montessori envisioned that lessons and materials present in class would be a jumping off point for learning. It is expected that through these outings and being exposed to “real-world” experiences that students will gather additional information that enhances their learning experience. We offer students a multifaceted curriculum that includes subjects of biology, botany, geography, geology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, music, art, and physical fitness.

I have two children at Odyssey and they are very happy there, excited to go to school each day. They are given freedom within boundaries, the whole child is educated ( social, emotional and academically ). It is not about memorization and regurgitation...no repetitive worksheets, minimal if any homework . My 8 year old is inspired and learning is fun. Lots of great extras - Mad Science, Engineering for Kids, and Drama for Elementary students, lots of field trips, art, Spanish and music! I wish I could have gone to school there as a child!

I have 2 very different children. One child is socially outgoing and quick to pick up concepts while the other child is socially anxious and difficult to engage. OM has been a perfect solution for both our children. Our advanced child is leaping ahead and tackling new subjects every day. Our anxious child gets the nurturing environment needed to boost his confidence and approach his schoolwork with enthusiasm rather than fear. Both our kids love the school and the staff has been a blessing for our family.

Odyssey is a small school, but it offers so much. My daughter has attended since she was 3. She has learned so much and the school feels like a real community. They have music, art, drama, running club, there are 17 field trips planned for the 2012-13 school year (elementary students and secondary students). The teachers really care about the students.
