West Side Montessori School
309 West 92nd Street
Our mission is to be a school that reflects the rich cultural, ethnic and economic diversity of our neighborhood; a school that actively involves families in their children's educational life; a school that embodies the best practices that have evolved in Montessori education over the past 90 years; and a school that is deeply committed to better understanding what education for young children is about and to sharing these emerging understandings with parents and the broader educational and social service communities. We strive to build a warm, welcoming community in which children and adults find friendship and support, a place where adults and children are encouraged to ask questions and broaden their understandings of themselves, others and the world. We have created various structures to further the development of each child's and adult's full range of abilities and talents. We are committed to developing physical, social and intellectual competencies.
