He Westmont Montessori School provides an environment that fosters independence, self-esteem, integrity, and personal responsibility. Our Montessori curriculum empowers each child by providing the foundation to excel academically, to develop respect for self and others, and to value the world in which we live. Self-confidence and a lifelong love of learning characterize the Westmont graduate. A school is as strong as its faculty and staff, Westmont’s faculty boasts a collective 100 plus years working at the school, adding to the school’s ongoing success. Many of our lead teachers are Montessori parents whose children attended or attend our school. Among our parent population are alumni, proud to give their children the great start they themselves received at Westmont. Former students return annually to participate in our Alumni Junior Camp Counselor Program giving back to the school that gave to them. Our school is a community of parents, students, faculty, staff and board members dedicated to a common goal, that of providing lifelong learning and skills which will support our students in the ever changing world in which we now live. Please come for a visit, and see what I mean. Find and experience an environment that is uniquely prepared to offer choice and hands-on learning to our students, an environment vibrant with happy, engaged students who are leaders and peers, individuals and team players, curious and focused. Find a school that is passionate and dedicated to children and community. ounded in 1964 by parents dedicated to a progressive educational system, the school continues to experience growth and success almost half a century later. When I entered the school for the first time over 30 years ago I felt its unique draw. I knew it was a place in which I wanted to pursue my career, a place that expected me to live my profession, share my passion for the children in my care, and impart the philosophy of education I embraced . As an administrator today it is equally important that I maintain the feeling in the school that I experienced as a young teacher. Everyone who walks through our doors deserves to encounter the warm and welcoming community that is Westmont.


Westmont parents are known for making a difference and these words best describe parent involvement at our school. The history of our school is closely linked to the commitment of our parents, and our ongoing success is attributed in great part to our parent/school partnership. Westmont’s current home was literally built from donations, fundraising, and volunteer efforts on behalf of a long line of parents.

Westmont parents are known for making a difference and these words best describe parent involvement at our school. Here are many ways a parent can be involved in our school. We welcome new families by assigning them a buddy family to facilitate an easy entry into their new environment. From there on in, we encourage and foster parent participation by offering a myriad of choices. Westmont has it’s own parent organization whose goal is to support the school, teachers, classes. We believe that our students are being led by an example that is second to none when they see their parents involved in their school, driving on field trips, reading to their class, helping with special celebrations, organizing bake sales, and celebrating their teachers and their school with them. All the work done by parents grows from a dedication to a school that is special to them and keeps the tradition of making a difference alive and strong.
