Open Houses

We welcome you to join us at an Open House. These are designed to help you get to know our school. During these parent-only evening events, you will have an opportunity to ask questions, tour classrooms, speak to WSMS faculty, trustees, and parents, and hear Mimi Basso, our Head of School, discuss the philosophy and mission of West Side Montessori School.

Open House dates for those considering applying for the 2018-2019 school year will be posted in September 2017.

Parents are welcome to attend an Open House before submitting an application to WSMS.

Reservations are not required.
