About our school
Sherwood Montessori is a tuition-free public charter school. It was founded in 2009, opened in fall 2010, and 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.
Sherwood Montessori is more than just an educational institution. From day one, we have considered Sherwood Montessori to be an environment where active learning takes place, a place where students can learn about the world and themselves. Our faculty's educational expertise and personal dedication are key to our culture of mutual respect and cooperation.
