Wilmington Montessori School fosters independence, kindness, self-discipline and a passion for learning in students ages 1 through 12. Based on Maria Montessori’s teaching methods, WMS awakens the spirit and imagination, equipping children with the knowledge, creativity and open-mindedness needed to become leaders. Classrooms offer safe, nurturing environments with programs that encourage physical, emotional, intellectual and social growth. The spacious facility contains a library and space dedicated to the arts, STEM, French, sports and child-care. Outside, the 25-acre campus provides a safe environment for recreation in its trails, streams, play areas and sports field. WMS values each child as an individual. Respect for oneself, others and the environment is stressed at all levels. All of this occurs in child-centered classrooms, giving children the freedom to grow within a structured environment.
