About Golden Oak Montessori
Golden Oak Montessori is a public charter school located in Castro Valley, California serving 250 students. Learn more about Golden Oak Montessori at www.goldenoakmontessori.org.
The mission of Golden Oak Montessori is to provide students in grades one through eight in the Hayward area with the opportunity to acquire an education based on the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, with an emphasis on independent learning; hands-on materials for a holistic education; and mixed-age classrooms to encourage long-term educational relationships and character development. Our school will actively recruit and serve a culturally, ethnically, and socio-economically diverse group of students reflective of the Hayward district; promote an integrated multi-subject teaching and learning curriculum; strive to close the academic achievement gap in minority and disadvantaged students; provide a Spanish-enriched curriculum for all students; and pursue an overarching aim of nurturing healthy community stewardship. Our goal is to educate children to be active, aware citizens with the skills and knowledge to participate meaningfully in the diverse and challenging new century.
Because Golden Oak Montessori is a free public charter school, admission is by lottery only. The lottery for each school year takes place in the Spring prior to the school year starting. Lottery priority is given to families residing in the Hayward Unified School District or a Montessori school; however, applicants from other cities and schools are welcome to apply.
