Our Blend of Two Philosophies

30 years of Montessori with over 10 years of IB

Since 1986, The Westwood School has provided an outstanding Montessori environment beginning at the Toddler level, building on the Chinese proverb, “What I hear I forget; what I see I remember; what I do I know.”

Westwood blends this highly regarded method with the International Baccalaureate Programme (IB), an ideal overlay to the foundation laid by the Montessori Method. IB World Schools (more than 3,500 in over 140 countries) share a common philosophy-a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that The Westwood School believes is important for our students.

Since 2004, Westwood has been an authorized IB World School. We welcome students and families who share a joy of learning and believe that education should be a journey, not a race. The Westwood School is a close-knit and caring community. Our students acquire the skills and values necessary to think critically and act responsibly within a student-centered curriculum with academic rigor and international mindedness.

At The Westwood School, we know you have many choices when it comes to the education of your child. We invite you to explore our site, visit our school and learn about our Toddler through High School programs.
