Welcome to Okemos Public Montessori @ Central!
"We do not believe in the educative power of words and commands alone, but seek cautiously, and almost without the child's knowing it, to guide his natural activity."
A Tradition of Quality
Okemos Public Schools have an extraordinary track record for high quality education.
The Okemos Public Montessori classrooms, while differing in method than a traditional classroom, are no different in their goal for excellence in education.
