Washington Montessori School is an engaging and substantive academic environment…

Grounded in the Montessori approach and the belief that all children have the innate desire and ability to learn, we foster academic excellence through the development of responsibility, self-esteem and self-reliance. Our students benefit from a personalized program, dedicated teachers and a carefully-considered curriculum that inspires them to become creative and independent thinkers.

 

…supported by a deeply-rooted and diverse community of families and educators.

The culture of our school community is based on respect, inclusiveness and collaboration.  Working in partnership with students and families, teachers build trusting and long lasting relationships. Mixed-age classes strengthen the experience. This approach enhances each student’s sense of belonging and facilitates optimal learning.
