Dear Prospective Families,

Woodinville Montessori School has been helping students learn, grow and become since 1983. We offer an authentic Montessori education for students of all ages—from toddler through high school (ages 18 months to 18 years). We have two beautiful and unique campuses – one in Woodinville (for the Early Childhood program only), and one in North Creek/Bothell (for Toddler, Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle & High School programs).

Here at WMS, you will truly find a diverse community of lifelong learners. Our curriculum ignites curiosity and passion in our students, and prepares them to be confident problem solvers within our community and beyond. WMS is proud to be accredited by both the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS).

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about the program level of your interest, watch a virtual campus tour, or book an in-person campus tour. Applying to WMS takes time and preparation – learn more about getting started with our application process here.

You can inquire regarding your level of interest here.

We welcome your questions and you may always reach us via email at

I wish you the best in your search for an independent school, and look forward to getting to know your family!


Julie Schwarz
Director of Admissions

Our commitment to diversity

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.
