As we kick of the 2015-2016 school year it seems a great time to consider the Webster Montessori School community. We have a lot to be proud of and many characteristics that may surprise you.
We are growing. From one small classroom that opened in a church basement in 1967 to a newly expanded and renovated building we own and a record breaking 128 (and still climbing) students across 7 classrooms.
We are diverse. We are a community of staff and families from all cultures. From those born and raised in Webster or throughout New York State or other states in the US to those born across the world and that now call this area home.
We are committed. Our families and staff appreciate a Webster Montessori School education. From staff that started just a few weeks ago to staff that are celebrating 20 years with WMS to staff that have worked here and come back to work here again. From students that just enrolled this week to families that have had children enrolled in this school for over 12 years.
We span the generations. From our youngest students that are only 18 months old and siblings just born over the summer to students in our oldest Elementary population. From staff who are working their way through college to staff who are celebrating the birth of grandchildren.
We believe in Montessori education. From families who just learned of Montessori from friends to families that have sent generations to Montessori schools. From staff who have been teaching a few years to staff that have been teaching for over 40 years. Our community is committed to engaging inquisitive minds.
What makes WMS unique? It’s our history. It’s our diversity. It’s our dedication to Montessori. It’s our community. Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!! It’s going to be amazing!
