Westside Montessori School

Westside Montessori School was founded in the Spring of 1977 by a small but energetic group of parents in the Memorial area.
Their goal was to establish a parent cooperative affiliated with the American Montessori Society.
Westside Montessori School is an AMS affiliate school.  It is with great enthusiasm, that we continue our dedication to the Montessori education of young children, by distinguishing ourselves as an accredited AMS school.
This year we will begin a self study process of improvement and discernment which will involve all aspects of our school; the staff, parents, environment and community.
Why should we become an accredited school.  While we have and maintain high standards, we want to actively seek to obtain higher standards, to have the best practices in teaching, to work as a community for the better good for everyone involved in our school, and to distinguish ourselves as one of only three currently AMS accredited school in the Houston area.
Our aim is to provide the highest standards among a professional staff striving to create an educational atmosphere that develops a life long love of learning for our students.
