Key West Montessori Charter School
The Key West Montessori Charter School (KWMCS) is a free public school located in the heart of Key West, Florida. We have the distinction of being the first charter school in Monroe County, Florida (1998), and have been recognized as an A+ rated, high-performing public school by Florida’s Commissioner of Education. We offer an alternative to traditional education by providing authentic Montessori education for free in Key West. Our curriculum challenges each student, individually, in a developmentally appropriate manner. KWMCS serves students in three program levels: lower elementary, which serves students in grades 1-3, upper elementary serving students in grades 4-6, and our early secondary program serves students in grades 7 and 8. Our school follows the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and encourages a love of learning, as well as the development of curiosity, self-motivation and respect.
