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.

The girls’ varsity team was honored to play the first game on our new field in the WMS Sports Park.

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.
