''To consider the school as a place where instruction is given is one point of view. But to consider the school as a preparation for life is another. In the latter case, the school must satisfy all the needs of life.'' (Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence)
Welcome to West Hills Montessori, the premier Montessori school on Long Island! West Hills Montessori accommodates children from the age of 18 months through 6th grade, all the while providing them with an unparalleled learning experience. The accelerated curriculum, punctuated by enriched instruction in areas such as computers, music, foreign languages, art, and physical education, is taught by a passionate, nurturing staff unlike any other. Montessori teachers open their students' hearts and minds to learning by leading them to ask questions, think for themselves, explore, investigate, and discover. In turn, their students learn patience, tolerance, respect and an appreciation for other perspectives. They are academically stimulated every step of the way, and develop independently based on their individual ability.
West Hills Montessori's location also makes it an ideal school for learning. Situated on the spectacular 18-acre private campus of West Hills Day Camp, West Hills Montessori offers an abundance of diverse athletic, academic, and recreational opportunities. These include multiple playgrounds, a climbing wall, student sized playing fields, tennis and basketball courts, paddle boats, a student-maintained garden, and a science center that features live animals and a living pond.
West Hills Montessori, located at 21 Sweet Hollow Road in Huntington, NY, is dedicated to the goal of education as described by Maria Montessori. Our mission since 1991 has been to guide the educational experiences of children so that they develop a lifelong love of learning. Please call 631-385-3342 to arrange a visit.
