One Step Closer...

Willow Oak Montessori is one step closer to being the first public Montessori Elementary School in Chatham County. The Board of Directors, staff, community members, current and alumni parents worked diligently for the past year to prepare an outstanding Charter School application.  The application was submitted to the North Carolina Public Charter School Advisory Council (PCSAC) in April 2012.  Willow Oak Montessori: A Public Charter School, the first of its kind in Chatham County, proposes to serve 240 students in first through eighth grades by its sixth year of operation.  The school advanced through the first two review sessions in May and June and completed a formal interview on July 18.  The PCSAC has recommended Willow Oak Montessori to the State Board of Education for approval.  In September 2012, the State Board of Education will vote for applicants to begin their preliminary planning year with final charter school approval granted in March of 2013.
