Since 1986, The Westwood School has provided an outstanding Montessori environment beginning at the preschool level, building on the Chinese proverb, “What I hear I forget, what I see I remember, what I do I know.”

Westwood blends this highly regarded method with  the International Baccalaureate, an ideal overlay to the foundation laid by the Montessori method.
IB World Schools (more than 2900 in over 130 countries) share a common philosophy–a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that The Westwood School believes is important for our students.

Westwood is an authorized IB World School, offering the IB Middle Years Programme (grades 7-10) and the IB Diploma Programme (grades 11-12).
