The Montessori School of Westminster offers a realm of possibilities to students
While the time-tested curriculum developed by Dr. Montessori includes classic academics and more, MSW’s extracurricular programs spark the interests of today’s students. Spanish language lessons are delivered to students of all ages by the school’s foreign language instructor. Adjunct instructors bring Physical Education and Chorus to children in first grade and above. Fine Art is delivered via specific lessons or by a qualified artist.
An emphasis on the outdoors is provided by the school’s robust Environmental Education program which takes advantage of MSW’s forested areas, wide lawns, and running stream. Aquatic studies, trail building, stewardship, and maple tree tapping are samples of MSW’s Environmental Education’s activities.
