Thank You

A heartfelt thank you to Auction Coordinator​ Laura Neminski, Briana Ball and the amazing network of volunteers for providing a wonderful evening in support of our school. We are deeply grateful to each and every individual who made the evening come together and to all those who came, placed a bid and shared in the fun. What a great team of committed parents we have. Thank you all so much.

In our minds there is no greater responsibility than to prepare our students for the future. See how we do it. 


The WMS Experience

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. Read our entire Statement of Purpose.

Montessori. More than...

Montessori students learn more than facts and figures—Montessori education encourages independent thinking, favors discipline and focus and nurtures the innate curiosity in each child so that they may adapt to the challenges of a fast-changing world. We believe hard work produces great outcomes. We encourage tenacity and resilience in the face of obstacles and without fear of failure. We inspire young people to find the best in themselves, to develop their strengths and to use their gifts with energy and distinction to the world around them.

Strategic Planning

In order to guide Washington Montessori School through the next phase of our history, the Board of Trustees has begun the important work of strategic planning. Leveraging momentum from our recent 50th Anniversary celebration, re-accreditation work and search for a new Head, our goal is to define the path toward sustained growth and innovation while remaining true to our roots.

As a valued member of the WMS community, your input is integral to shaping our strategic vision. It is an incredible privilege to take part in the planning of WMS’s future, as well as an immense responsibility. We look forward to collaborating with the WMS community at large to build a shared vision for the school.
