Goodwater Montessori Public Charter School was created by WilCo Montessori Partners, a group of Montessori educators and parents in Williamson County, Texas.
With work begun in 2013, supporters submitted a charter application to the Texas Education Agency in 2015. In July 2016, the Texas State Board of Education approved Goodwater's opening in August 2017.
Goodwater enrolls children ages 3-12 in Primary, Lower Elementary, and Upper Elementary programs, with a grade added each subsequent year, ultimately supporting a full Adolescent (middle school) program. We will be located at 700 Stadium Drive (County Road 151), Georgetown, Texas, 78626.
