The Main Campus of Omni Montessori School is located on Blakeney Heath Road in South Charlotte. An area once part of the rural outskirts of the city is now a bustling and family-friendly district. Yet Omniís seven-acre main campus remains a peaceful, wooded setting for the schoolís Primary and Elementary students Ė and an integral element of their educational experience. A schoolyard habitat registered with the National Federation of Wildlife, the Main Campus is home to several buildings, including:
- Primary building with three classrooms and administrative offices.
- Two Elementary buildings housing two Lower Elementary classrooms and two Upper Elementary classrooms.
- Activity Center which houses a gymnasium, a library, additional office space, and a kitchen.
- Natural wooded areas and an orchard.
- Two open fields with play structures for recreation.
All of the classrooms on Main Campus include a kitchen for the preparation of snacks, as well as a deck and garden that are maintained by the children, teachers, and a parent who serves as class gardener. The Main Campus has ample space for outdoor play, as well as playground equipment and a sports field.
Omniís Land Lab is home to its Middle School for students in grades 7 through 9. The 13-acre campus is located in Waxhaw, North Carolina, 14 miles south of Main Campus. Launched in 2008, the Land Lab is a working farm. Its buildings have been converted and renovated and now include:
- The Hacienda, which houses four classrooms, a kitchen, a library, and common areas for work and study.
- An aquatic center that is the future home to Omniís aquaponics laboratory.
- Two spring-fed ponds, which are an integral part of the studentsí science curriculum.
- A barn with a workshop and animal stalls.
- A grazing pasture for animals.

The Land Lab exists as a laboratory for our Middle School programís integrated, applied curriculum. It also serves as a community where the students live and work, running their own business, and exploring different types of occupations as they grow and develop into adults.
