About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Countryside Montessori Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Countryside Montessori Academy Reviews
Countryside is one of the few schools that provides a Montessori education tuition-free. The administration and faculty are first-rate, and the student to faculty ratio is an amazing 10:1, with an assistant in every class! Countryside is one of the top scoring schools on the FCAT in the county each year (out of 50 schools). I am very happy with the education that my children are receiving at the school, and the teachers are very dedicated and capable. A Montessori-based education teaches children to work independently and manage their time effectively, very valuable skills for the future.
