“Life is activity at its peak, and it is only through activity that the perfections of life can be sought and gained.”
At WMS, our enrichment classes add broader educational experiences to our existing robust curriculum.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are integral to the Montessori curriculum, yet WMS offers additional experiential hands-on activities for all ages. In the Innovation & Design (ID) lab, preschool children are exposed to circuits, elementary students create 3-D and laser printing projects, and secondary students make geodomes.

Before-and after-school care, known as Club House, is provided at both campuses as a service for our families. Club House includes indoor and outdoor play, and older children may use this time for study hall. Club House is available to currently enrolled students on regular school days.
The arts programs at WMS allow students opportunities to explore their creativity, express themselves and communicate their feelings. We offer visual arts, drama, voice, recorder, ukulele and drums.
We believe in the importance of organized movement to encourage the development of coordination, strength, motor function and physical fitness. Physical Education classes are included for children of all ages. For students who want to challenge themselves even further, we offer athletic opportunities for students including orienteering, volleyball, ultimate Frisbee, soccer and basketball. For more information, please contact Director of Athletics Theresa Kirby.
