About Wheaton Montessori


“It was a delight to visit this gem of a Montessori school.  Rebecca Lingo and Wheaton Montessori School’s elementary team are earnest (and successful) and unified in their desire to implement Montessori tenets and AMI standards.  They are humble in self-evaluation, eager for constructive input, and passionate in their love for children and the Montessori approach.  I wish them every success for many more years of service to the children and families of their community.”

– J. McKeever, AMI-USA Consultant, 2015
