Five elements distinguish the Washington Montessori learning experience for children at all levels: personalized education, a collaborative community, character development, dedicated teachers and challenging academics.
The Parent Child Program is an opportunity for parents/caregivers and their young children aged 6 to 18 months to be together in a Montessori environment.
The Young Children's Community encourages children aged 18 months to three years to develop trust and independence while introducing them to age-appropriate Montessori materials.
In the Lower School, three- to-six-year-old children develop concentration, a sense of order, and independence through a variety of classroom exercises.
Lower Elementary classrooms are organized into three broad curriculum areas (language, math, and culture) and the six- to nine-year-old students study cooperatively under the guidance of their teachers.
The Upper Elementary program for children aged nine to 11 promotes independent thinking and accountability and supports diverse learning styles by presenting information in various ways.
The Middle School program is rich and rigorous, preparing 11- to 14-year-old students for high school through academic challenge, community involvement, and social interaction.
WMS also offers additional learning support services, such as tutoring, sensory integration/occupational therapy and speech therapy. We also offer before- and after-school care for students of all ages.
