Wheaton Montessori School’s Admission Policy

We strive to maintain classrooms balanced in age and gender. Previous Montessori experience, readiness, and the age and gender of the child (as they relate to our goal of balanced classrooms) will be considered as a basis for classroom assignment.

Wheaton Montessori School’s 1st-6th grade program is filled with re-enrolling WMS students. WMS will make every attempt possible to accommodate children transferring from other AMI schools with continuous Montessori educational experience.

Wheaton Montessori School’s Jr. High program (7th-9th grades) is also filled with re-enrolling students.

At WMS, we are proud of our reputation as the only AMI recognized school in the western suburbs. Our staff and student body are relatively small and the resulting community is closely knit and unique. Admission includes a specific set of steps to ensure parents know as much about our school and the Montessori Method as possible.
