School Notes:

Fraser-Woods Montessori School is an independent school for children 18 months to 8th grade. A Montessori education embraces the whole child, the body as well as the mind. At Fraser-Woods, classes in art, music, physical education, language and technology complement the main subject areas of traditional learning and support the annual Cultural Program which gives students an opportunity to work hands-on in the arts.  Past Cultural Program themes include dance, opera, storytelling, and Shakespeare and have helped students to develop a deep appreciation of the richness of many cultures. A Montessori education at Fraser-Woods School includes a challenging curriculum encouraging competent, responsible, adaptive citizens who are lifelong learners and problem solvers. Our goal is to stir your child’s passion for asking questions about their world.  That curiosity allows him/her to go beyond set limits and provides opportunities for advanced discovery and the pursuit of their full potential.  Now accepting applications for September 2012-June 2013 school year. Private tours are also available by appointment. Please contact Alison Kistner in the Office of Admissions 203-426-3390 ext 305 or alison@fraserwoods.comto RSVP for this event or to schedule a private tour.
