Wildflower Schools in Minnesota

Wildflower is strategically growing a hub of schools in Minnesota. Following both the leadership of our teachers and the principles of Wildflower, our network...

-Is composed of schools that are intentionally diverse – both racially and socioeconomically – and that are low cost or free, especially for low-income families.

-Will follow the Montessori method. We imagine a network of schools serving children age 0-8th grade.

-Will open 2-3 schools per year for the next 5+ years.

-Has a current focus on Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the surrounding first ring suburbs – though we’ll follow our teachers and evolve based on the communities that they most want to serve.

Our Charter

In Minnesota, Wildflower Schools operate as independent schools and under the umbrella of the Minnesota Wildflower Montessori Charter School (MWMS). We are currently exploring partnerships with school districts and broader institutions in the Twin Cities. Teachers Leaders will determine which school structure will best meet the needs of their learning community.

The Minnesota Wildflower Montessori School is a public charter school authorized by the Audubon Center of the North Woods. Our charter provides a free option for teachers interested in starting and families interested in enrolling in a Wildflower school.

Minnesota Wildflower Montessori School is governed by its own school board comprised of teachers, parents and community members.
