What is Woodinville Montessori High School?
Preparation for Life
"WMS helped me to understand myself and evaluate what kind of world I want to be in. This knowledge was integral to deciding where to go to college, and how I should spend my time—majors, minors, friends, extracurricular activities—so as to formulate an idea of where I want life to take me."—T.S. '20
"WMS helped me transition when I first left Shanghai and arrived at my new home. I really appreciate the community and the teachers who are always so patient and supportive. I gained a strong interest in social sciences during my time at WMS and am now studying international politics at Occidental College."—N.W. '19
“I like the close community and dedication of the teachers.”—I.M. '17
Opened at the request of our parents in September 2014, WMHS is based on a philosophy that honors the individual, respects a variety of learning styles and provides high-challenge educational opportunities to every student. It may be small, but it can be just the right fit for a student who loves to learn, to work in a supportive, close-knit environment and to go deep into subject areas, a student who appreciates finding connections, and understanding the interconnectedness of all things.
Flexible learning plans, seminar-style classes, mastery learning and time for reflection give space for deep learning and encourage personal growth. The unique Montessori learning partnership between student and teacher results in young people who can confidently advocate for themselves and others.
Our goal is for students to leave WMS with
- a sense of their purpose in life
- a strong moral compass
- a firm academic foundation
- the ability to take charge of their learning
- the readiness to contribute positively to the world in their own unique way
