The board of directors is working to complete application to the districts of Bend-La Pine, and Redmond to partner in offering a Montessori education for grades 1-8.
If approved, work on two new Montessori schools offering from 300-600 seats will commence by the fall of 2015. One school to potentially be located in NE Bend and the other in Redmond. The schools will conform to the Montessori Method of education whilst adhering to the common core standards.
For the NE Bend campus, the school will house between 400-600 students which will be chosen on a lottery basis. For Redmond, the school will house between 300-400 students also to be chosen on a lottery basis.
Work is currently taking place on the charter application with plans to have it completed and turned into the districts by the first of March.
