We would like to congratulate our class of 2016 on their individual and collective accomplishments. We know they leave Washington Montessori School fully prepared for the academic and social challenges ahead.  We are pleased to announce that this year’s graduates will be attending the following schools: Berkshire School, Canterbury School, Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, The Gunnery, The Hotchkiss School, Housatonic Valley Regional High School, Kent School, Litchfield High School, Los Altos High School, CA, Marvelwood School, Millbrook School, Out-of-Door Academy, Pasadena Waldorf High School, South Kent High School, Stratton Mountain School, The Taft School, Westminster School and Westover School.



We believe there is no better way to understand the Montessori difference than to experience it yourself—even if you’re just curious. To this end, we invite you to join us for one of our Walk-In Wednesdays or to schedule a visit of our campus. Our students will give you a tour of the building and our teachers will invite you in to the classrooms for observation. For a preview, visit our "At a Glance" page.

Mornings work best for observing the children at work, but we’re flexible and happy to work around your schedule. Please contact Laura Martin, Assistant Head for School Advancement at lmartin@washingtonmontessori.org or 860-868-0551 to set up a visit.


Washington Montessori School is an engaging and substantive academic environment supported by a deeply-rooted and diverse community of families and educators. Our students learn to recognize their individual and collective potential, develop thoughtful approaches to learning, and choose paths to responsible and fulfilling lives.

Home Right



Phase-in is an important foundation of Montessori education during which students and teachers get to know one another and become acquainted or re-acquainted with the classrooms, materials and peers. At WMS, students in ALL LEVELS complete a phase-in, however, due to the demands on the modern family, our phase-in schedules are always evolving. Please review the 2016 Phase In Schedule carefully to determine your child’s schedule. If you have any questions regarding the Phase-In schedule or need additional childcare during the Phase-In period, please contact Assistant Head for School Advancement, Laura Martin..



We encourage all of our students to continue reading throughout the summer months. We have varying summer reading and math requirements for students at different levels. Please visit the Summer Reading & Math page for details.
