How do I enroll my child in WMPCS?  Contact the office at (252) 946-1977 for an enrollment application and return the completed application to the office before the deadline for the January enrollment lottery.  You will be notified of your enrollment status after the lottery.   If you are placed on a waiting list, you will be notified of your status in the queue.

Are there any fees for attending WMPCS?  No.  There are no enrollment fees or tuition required to attend our school.

Is WMPCS a public school?  Does the school receive taxpayer money?  Yes. We are a public school, and receive money from the State of North Carolina, the US Federal Government, and local counties.  We do not typically receive any taxpayer money to fund the construction of our classroom buildings and facilities.

What ages/grades does WMPCS serve?  WMPCS is open to all children from Kindergarten through 8th grade.   There is a paid, private pre-school option for children from age 3 until they are eligible to enter kindergarten, which is funded differently from the public K-8 school.

What are some benefits of a Montessori education?  There are many benefits to providing your child with a Montessori education.  Some of them are:

Every child learns at his/her own pace.

Your child learns how to focus and concentrate, which is a foundation skill for learning throughout life.

Montessori accommodates all styles of learning.

Montessori educated children learn to become self-directed learners.  

Children learn to achieve independence in thought and action.
