Montessori all the way—through high school? Yes. We believe we’re doing something special here at WMS—giving children the chance to take their Montessori education all the way from toddlerhood to adulthood. It’s an exciting time, as we set about to offer students a solid preparation for their chosen path, whether that be college, vocational school or a different path altogether.Sunita Pailoor

“I believe that Montessori education ignites student passion for learning and prepares them to be confident problem solvers,” says Head of School Sunita Pailoor. “It is the pathway of the future.”

Personalized learning plans help children find the ways that work for them, and time for reflection builds critical thinking skills and encourages deep learning. Students become mentors and leaders and make friends of different ages in the multi-age classrooms. Two teachers per classroom ensure individual attention for each child. After-school child care, clubs, electives and day and summer camps provide enriching learning and social opportunities. Class retreats and special capstone trips and projects provide balance and a richer experience.

Our recreational athletics for students in fourth through eighth grades are popular and growing. Sports so far are coed soccer, basketball, volleyball and ultimate Frisbee. We also compete in Orienteering for a wide range of ages.
