Our Mission

Students Watching WallpaperOur mission is to inspire academic excellence; to nurture curiosity, creativity, and imagination; and to do so within an environment rich with warmth, kindness and respect.

 At Washington Montessori Public Charter School, our goal is to provide a Montessori education to all of our students: to nurture them in a caring and supportive environment that will ignite their curiosity and inspire them to learn naturally.

Visitors will not see rows of desks, textbooks or teachers lecturing in front of the class. Instead one finds children working at shared tables, on mats on the floor or sitting at lap desks. Resource books and novels are found throughout the classroom and the teacher is usually nestled in a small group of students giving lessons.

Our materials address a child's need to experience the concrete in order to understand the abstract.
