Wildflower Schools in Massachusetts

Wildflower began as an idea launched out of the MIT Media lab as a partnership between parents and teachers who envisioned a new, community-centric educational model. Today, Wildflower has become a national movement of schools all across the country.
In Massachusetts, Wildflower is strategically growing a hub — a regional cluster of schools that are opened or in the process of opening. Our goal is to create schools that are representative of the communities in which they are located, as we work toward a liberated future for all children.

The Wildflower network has a deep commitment to building intentionally diverse, small, authentic Montessori environments that support the leadership of teachers, the principles of Wildflower, and, most importantly, the thriving of children.

We believe equity in education is achieved when schools are owned and operated by people representative of the communities from which they emerge. Because of this, Wildflower Schools are inherent extensions of their communities and are greatly influenced by the identity of each teacher leader.

With this understanding rooting our purpose, Wildflower focuses on supporting educators in attaining the skills and resources they need to launch and lead Wildflower Montessori schools. We are seeking educators with a deep commitment to creating schools that are representative of their community and that act as vehicles for education equity.

Opportunities

Open a School in Massachusetts

Wildflower Schools are tiny (1-2 classroom), community embedded, teacher-led, intentionally racially and socioeconomically diverse Montessori Schools. We are committed to providing each child and family what they need for a liberatory education, finding their purpose and fulfilling their potential. Because of our nimble model, we are able to operate in response to community interest as independent, public, or innovation schools.
