Take a virtual tour of our campus!
Westside Montessori School (WMS) offers a year-round program with enrollment for students 18 months through eighth grade. The school year begins mid-August and ends in May. A summer program is available during the months of June and July. Enrollment at WMS reflects the dynamics of West Houston, so as students advance, and families move to new jobs or foreign assignments, positions in the various programs and classrooms become available. Please don’t hesitate to put your child’s name on our waiting list.
Returning Students – Preference is given to currently enrolled students. Current registration forms will be found on our WMS Forms page.
Registration Fee – There is a $200 registration fee for the 2020-2021 academic year paid at the time of a child’s initial enrollment. A Re-registration fee of $150 is due in February of each year in order to hold an already enrolled student’s place in the classroom for the next academic year.
Tuition Deposit – A deposit equal to one month’s tuition is assessed at the time of enrollment. This deposit is held on file in the child’s name until WMS receives a 30-day written Notice of Intent to Withdraw. This withdrawal notice must be received while the child is still enrolled in order for the tuition deposit to pay for the final month’s tuition.
Supply Fee – This fee varies by level and is due on or before August 1st of each school year. Please visit our Tuition and Fees page for more information.
New Students – Please call 281.556.5970 or email with any questions about the school, our programs, enrollment procedures, or specific questions concerning your child or circumstances. We welcome your questions because we know that choosing the right school for your child is very important to you.

…or talk with us before you relocate to Houston
Many of our Westside families move to the area from other parts of the United States or other countries. Distance and the need to make remote decisions about schools can be stressful. Our staff is happy to provide parents with as much information as possible to help make a decision that is right for your family.
We are proud of our cultural diversity and encourage children to share their different experiences with their classmates.
