Mission Statement: Welsh Hills School provides a dynamic, global education that focuses on the whole child.
We serve families with infants through grade 12.  Welsh Hills School is a place where your child can pursue an education that nurtures intellectual curiosity, stimulates personal growth, and encourages critical thinking and innovation.
It is a place where your child can be part of a supportive learning community -- where what students learn in service projects or the school play is as important as the classroom lessons, and here your child can be motivated to be enthusiastic and creative about learning in an academically rigorous environment -- where students go on to enroll in college and pursue fulfilling careers.
The Welsh Hills School philosophy recognizes that each child is a unique individual and is highly respected as such. Welsh Hills School is committed to an education that serves the whole child and incorporates a wide array of experiences designed to encourage learning across each area: cognitive, social, emotional, ethical, and physical. Differentiated learning is a natural part of the Montessori program at Welsh Hills School, and students are encouraged to explore areas of personal interest.4

Hands-on learning with caring teachers and a unique STEAM curriculum. The unique environment at Welsh Hills provides students the freedom to learn as they go, in their own way, on real-world lessons. I know that this philosophy provides students of all ages the opportunity to discover their talents and pursue their passions in a supportive community. I am grateful for my WHS education.

We''ve had our children at Welsh Hills School for over six years, and we are very pleased with the quality of education that they are receiving. The class sizes are small, which allows very individualized attention. The children collaborate with the teacher to learn, they''re not taught at. There is a strong emphasis on self-learning. The environment is warm and nurturing, like home. There is a strong culture of respecting others. There is deliberate interaction among the grade levels. We are fortunate to have several great schools available for the education of our children, public and private, but the best choice for us is Welsh Hills School, without question.
