Welcome to Sherwood Montessori!


Sherwood Montessori is the effort of a dedicated group of Chico parents who have a combined expertise in education, management, psychology and financial planning to create a public Montessori charter Kindergarten-Eighth grade school. Our vision is for small, multi-aged classrooms where any member of the greater Chico community can succeed by applying the Montessori philosophy in their education.


Why "Sherwood Montessori"? The founding board wanted a name that reflected both the environmental focus typical of Montessori schools and the proud heritage of Chico. As many local residents know, the classic 1938 movie, "The Adventures of Robin Hood," was filmed on location in Bidwell Park-the Sherwood Forest of King John. Conjuring images of both adventure and lush forests, we felt the name emphasized our vision for the school.

Please note: Sherwood Montessori is an independent endeavor that is not connected to any existing school in Chico or elsewhere.
