Community Partnership Program

This program provides Middle School education to 6 graduates of the Children’s Community School (CCS) in Waterbury, CT each year.

The program has been in place since 2005 with both support and enthusiasm from the faculty and Board of Trustees at WMS. The children who come to our school have been identified as potential academic and social leaders within the CCS community.

The goal of this partnership is to provide a WMS education to students from all socioeconomic backgrounds, so that we may enrich not only our own school community, but the larger community as well. All gifts to this program will support the cost of educating WMSCPP students. This includes tuition, transportation to and from school, and expenses for materials and activities.

When WMSCPP students enter eighth grade, attention is given to planning their next step into high school, so they may continue to thrive at their next level of education.

Washington Montessori School has a history of reaching out and connecting to the community through volunteer initiatives. WMS students are involved in these efforts and the philosophy of giving to others is embedded in our curriculum.  Our school’s partnership with the Children’s Community School dates back to 1995 and continues to enrich our school community.
