WEMS Mission

West End Montessori School provides a classic Montessori education for families and serves a culturally and socio-economically diverse community.

We understand that we are setting a life-pattern for your child by providing support for their intellectual and emotional growth at this point of life. We hope that each child's experiences at WEMS will allow them to develop a sense of self-confidence that encourages inquisitiveness, initiative and independence in learning for the joy of learning. All teachers use their expertise to function as a team to provide a well-rounded learning environment for your child.
