I am a current and alumni parent of Westmont who was admittedly clueless about the difference of a Montessori education when evaluating schools for my children. Westmont educated me while educating my children and now I am an advocate for life. My children, now 7 and 3 have experienced countless benefits from the Westmont environment and I feel so strongly about the community, teachers, administration and leadership that I was driven to action to post my very first YELP review to say as much.Westmont has each and every student's best interest at heart and I have seen that demonstrated over the course of my last 3+ years affiliated with the school. The academics and social/emotional curriculum is second to none. The community we entered has provided lasting friendships for my children and my spouse and I that have become our foundational friends in this community of Chester/Mendham that was new to us. You will not regret giving your children the opportunity to thrive at Westmont. Please reach out with any questions because as a business person I value a balanced and objective perspective but I also have very high standards so when a business exceeds those standards, especially when my children are the benefactors, I had to post a review!

My son attended Westmont for his kindergarten year and we LOVED it! -The academic program is fantastic. -The teachers are experienced, qualified, and loving. -The school offers music, movement, Spanish, art, extended day, and after school clubs like tumbling and drama. -The administration and staff members are all warm and welcoming. -The campus and classrooms are beautiful. -The children and other parents are friendly. I would highly recommend Westmont!

Contract cheating is more common than most of us realize. Finding somebody online to write essays or term papers is fairly easy to do. The way we parents counter immoral behavior like this is to discuss it frequently with our children.
