Endeavor Schools, one of the fastest-growing education management companies in the United States, has acquired Woodpark Montessori, an infant through preschool-age Montessori school located outside Minneapolis.
Established in 1990, Woodpark Montessori has been a top choice for local families for more than three decades. With two campuses in Savage and Burnsville, Minnesota, the school’s dedication to providing children with an authentic Montessori experience was a significant factor in Endeavor’s decision to acquire the fledgling school.
Although each one of our Montessori schools across the country is unique in their own ways, they all have excellent teachers who understand the value of the Montessori experience,” said Lee Lanou, the Director of Montessori Education of Endeavor Schools. “We are excited about partnering with the wonderful educators at Woodpark, and we look forward to helping them continue the excellent work they have been doing for such a long time.”
With the addition of Woodpark Montessori School, Endeavor Schools owns and operates 69 schools in 13 states across the country. The company’s growing portfolio includes preschools, elementary and middle schools that offer a variety of educational styles, such as Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and project-based programs. Endeavor also owns and operates advanced studies high schools in two states.
Endeavor Schools’ latest acquisition expands its Minnesota presence to a total of 12 campuses, all within the Minneapolis metro area. In addition to Woodpark Montessori, Endeavor owns and manages Step By Step Montessori Schools, which includes eight campuses, and Peaceful Valley Montessori Academy, which has two campuses.
Endeavor Schools has a growing presence in Minnesota. With a total of twelve Montessori schools in the Minneapolis area, the company is deepening its commitment to providing local families with excellent Montessori programs.
Ranked the fastest-growing private school company in Florida by Inc. Magazine, the Miami-based company has added 15 new campuses in seven different states so far this year.
“Providing high-quality schools that parents can count on is an integral part of our mission,” said Ricardo Campo, the CEO of Endeavor Schools. “We believe communities are stronger through education, and we are proud to give children the opportunity to thrive every day.”
