West Side Montessori School (WSMS) is an early childhood, independent Montessori school enrolling approximately 200 students, ages 2.10 through 6 (pre-K through kindergarten).
We are a school that awakens children's imaginations to the limitless possibilities in life.
We are a warm, welcoming community in which children and adults find friendships and support, where adults and children are encouraged to ask questions and broaden their understandings of themselves, others and the world around them.
We are committed to maintaining our position as a model urban early childhood program.
We are also committed to being a school that helps prepare future teachers through our on-site weekend Montessori teacher preparation program (our WSMS-TEP) and our vigorous student teaching program.
