WMS Course Curriculum


Wheaton Montessori School’s Adolescent Community program opened fall 2014 under the direction of Dr. John-Marc Bilezikian.  Wheaton Montessori School’s Junior High, or Adolescent Community, is a three-year program spanning 7th, 8th, and 9th grades.


The video below shows Dr. Bilezikian during the Spring of 2014, introducing parents to Montessori’s unique approach in addressing the developmental needs and characteristics of teens.

After the lecture one parent stated,

“Everyone should hear him just to know what is ahead for parents of this age and what is in store is amazing. I feel like I know where I am headed with my children. If I had to embark on this journey with anyone, there is no one else I would feel more comfortable with than him. I totally trust him.”
