Montessori School of Ojai



Resources for learning

The Montessori School of Ojai’s tranquil ten-acre site features mature live oaks and large playing fields. Located on Highway 150 near Lake Casitas in Ojai, it serves students from Ojai, western Ventura County, and north to Carpinteria and Santa Barbara.

Our organic gardens and orchard are maintained year-round by students and staff. Elements of this program include composting, raising seedlings in our solar greenhouse, planting and tending raised beds and herb gardens and numerous fruit trees. Produce is used daily in our hot lunch program’s organic salad bar. The garden classroom is a valuable tool in teaching practical life skills.
