A growing, diverse community

NBA MVP Stephen Curry: “Montessori helped me become the person I am today”

Dear Prospective Families,
I am thrilled that you are exploring WMS, a place where independence and academic successes are recognized, community awareness is fostered, and socially responsible behavior is valued and reinforced. This year we celebrate 33 years of educating courageous, lifelong Montessori learners. Please explore our website and discover our unique approach to educating your child. Then, schedule a visit, as it is through the observing the engagement of our students and faculty that you will truly appreciate the wonder of a Montessori environment. You will then witness the amazing learning communities that we intentionally create every day.

At the core of our values is the belief that all children have gifts and challenges. Some students bring gifts that are easy to unwrap, and some take a bit longer to reveal. Our community exists to nurture children into the practice of caring for themselves, one another, and the environment. Our students in every program level are creative, conscientious, and productive. Our graduates are prepared for college, and prepared for life.

Finding the right school for your family is a journey that takes parental perseverance. The process of applying to independent schools can be daunting. However, I know that you will enjoy the many opportunities to get to know our school and to learn what makes us so special.

We strive to make the process a pleasant one for you and for your child. Please explore, and contact me anytime along the way. Please follow the steps below to learn how to apply or schedule a tour, and be sure to check out all the wonderful opportunities to visit WMS and important admissions dates listed on the Admissions Calendar. See you soon!

Sincerely,
Director of Admissions Keri Sliger

Our commitment to diversity

In order for our students to go out into the world appreciating diversity, they must experience it and see it modeled in their school and homes. Awareness of and respect for individual differences are embedded in our Montessori philosophy and curriculum. WMS seeks to acknowledge the uniqueness of each person’s experience and background within the broad spectrum of humanity. We do this by creating a culture of appreciation and mutual respect, acceptance and a commitment to human rights and to free and open inquiry. Our commitment to diversity extends throughout the school community, including students, families, employees, Family Alliance and the Board of Trustees. It is not enough to limit this commitment to curriculum and teaching methods; it must be evident in our culture and in how we conduct all business and social affairs of the school. The admissions, business, communications and development staff intentionally consider the diversity in our community when making plans and decisions.
