The West Ottawa Montessori program began in 2000, with one classroom, and continues to expand. With eight current classrooms, the Montessori program now engages kindergarten through fifth grade learners in three grade banded sections (Kindergarten, Lower Montessori, and Upper Montessori). The Montessori students also take part in all the school has to offer. The program not only stresses the methods of Dr. Maria Montessori, but also provides the rigor of content to ensure all students are College, Career and Life Ready!
Montessori offerings have helped create our current class structure of Kindergarten Montessori, Lower Montessori (1st - 3rd grade), and Upper Montessori (4th - 5th grade). The ability to offer this educational format alongside traditional style education helps make Waukazoo a truly great place for students of all learning styles to start their educational journey.Sam Lemmon, Waukazoo Principal
