WMS people


Welcome to Washington Montessori Schools’ website.  While a website cannot tell the whole story of a school, I hope that you will take the time to explore. 

WMS is a community of learners, from our youngest in our YCC program through our Middle School as well as our teachers.  Rooted in the Montessori Method introduced to the world by Dr. Maria Montessori, our community focuses on the individual and collective pursuit of learning.  Our students learn through a deep engagement with the material and a solid understanding of the world around them.  As a result they go on to become responsible global citizens who lead fulfilling lives.

I hope that you will reach out to us and engage in personal conversations about our teachers, our students, and the community in order to truly discover how Montessori matters.  I look forward to hearing from you.
