Omni Montessori School, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, is Charlotte’s oldest and largest institution serving students from age three to grade nine. Omni teachers are highly-trained professionals. At minimum, all head teachers have earned a bachelor's degree and are AMI-certified at their grade level. Many faculty members have also earned masters and other post-graduate degrees. Omni teachers have taught an average of 19 years. Omni Montessori School is recognized by the prestigious Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), is a member of the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS) and is a member of the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA).
Omni was founded in 1985 by a group of parents interested in providing authentic Montessori education for their children. They purchased seven acres of land in then-rural south Charlotte. A basic metal building housed one Primary classroom, one Elementary classroom, and a small office where parent volunteers handled administrative responsibilities. In that first year, 43 children enrolled at the school. As Omni’s reputation grew and the waiting list expanded, the school added additional classrooms and buildings. A Lower Elementary building was added in 1990, and an Upper Elementary building in 1998.
In 2008, Omni opened its multi-purpose Activity Center on the Main Campus providing additional space for athletic, theatrical, musical and social events, a beautiful library, and additional administrative offices. In 2008, Omni launched its Middle School program serving students in grade seven through nine. A 13-acre farm in nearby Waxhaw was purchased and transformed into the Omni Land Lab.
