Safety Harbor Montessori Academy does not discriminate based on race, sex, color, religion, or national or ethnic origin in regards to admission.  Placement in a class is based on the well-being of all children concerned, and is at the sole discretion of the educational staff.

Notice to parents enrolling students under the FES-UA scholarship:  Please note that our school accommodates students with disabilities in accordance with the requirements under federal and local law.  However, your child may not necessarily receive the types of accommodations or related services that your child may be entitled to receive at a public school as public schools have different obligations under the IDEA. The IDEA does not apply to private schools.  We are happy to have a conversation with you about the accommodations that your child may need and be entitled to at our school.
