Mission-appropriate students/acceptance considerations
At all levels we attempt to balance age, gender, family commitment to Montessori education in future years, and the diverse needs of our student body in admitting children. Parental request is considered, but cannot always be accommodated, given the need to balance the classrooms on multiple parameters.
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.
