A private Montessori School nurturing students from pre-K through middle school in Houston, Texas
Montessori education, more than most approaches to schooling, heavily depends on the learning environment and the Montessori materials in the classroom. Therefore, the lessons that our teachers deliver online during distance learning are congruent with Montessori principles while recognizing the challenges this presents in the home environment.
Our faculty have carefully provided activities in which the children can engage easily from home. They are utilizing tools such as Google Classroom, SeeSaw, Zoom, YouTube, Outlook, and many more in order to best accommodate learning from a distance while continuing to keep lessons and student engagement age-appropriate and suited to different learning styles. Your students, depending on level, may engage via email, videos, and/or phone/video calls as a way to participate.
Teachers are available Monday through Friday for “office hours” so that students and parents may check in with them regarding any questions they may have.
We recognize that not all families will have access to Westside Montessori School’s distance learning curriculum due to their situations, but we will continue to operate as a community and regularly provide educational opportunities to all our children.
Your distance learning experience is important to us and we are dedicated to continuing to work together with our families to find solutions that allow your children to learn from home without overwhelming you or them! We surveyed our community and below are the results, based on a scale with zero being negative feedback and 10 being positive feedback for each question.
Thank you in advance for your continued patience and support as we all work to navigate these uncertain times and keep our families safe and healthy.
Our campus will be closed until further notice, but learning will continue! If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to us directly at so we can work together to make the best of this difficult situation.
