The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.' ~Maria Montessori

Welcome to Magnolia Montessori Academy

Magnolia Montessori Academy opened its doors in August 2013 and was started by a group of like-minded parents who had a wish to provide more Montessori education in a neighborhood setting to more students in Polk County. Magnolia Montessori’s 5-acre campus is nestled among the trees in the heart of Lakeland, FL.

MMA is a public charter school currently serving preschool through fifth grades, adding a grade each year through eighth grade (sixth grade in August 2014, seventh grade in August 2015, and eighth grade in August 2016).

Current Job Openings

We are currently in need of PCSB qualified substitute teachers.  We do not use the county system to call substitute teachers when we need them, so if you are already approved to substitute in Polk County public schools and would like to substitute at our school, please let us know so we can add you to our substitute roster.  Each classroom has more than one teacher, so you would be working with other teachers during the day that will guide you through the Montessori experience!

Please email your resume and let us know your interest in substitute teaching to discover@magnoliamontessoriacademy.com
