My family is THRILLED with WSM!!!! Two of my three children attend and we are getting ready to enroll my third. We love the staff who are very dedicated and passionate about students and learning. There are so many opportunities for my children including being able to perform in a play, going on field trips, going on over night trips and being provided hands on learning.

West Seattle Montessori School & Academy has created a incredible foundation for my children. We truly have found a school that doesn't just push "common core". They provide a challenging learning environment in and out of the classroom, social and emotional support through all years and have allowed my children to explode in their academics. I have been so grateful to have this school and community..
