Wellan Montessori School (formerly Newton Montessori School) is an independent, coeducational school for students age 15 months – Grade 8, located in Newton Centre, MA.
At Wellan, educators harness the power of each child’s intrinsic motivation; all students are known, cherished, and given the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential. Students benefit from hands-on lessons and structured curricula while working toward mastery in all subject areas. Outside of the school day, students also enjoy after-school enrichment opportunities including performing arts, athletics, computer programming, woodworking, and more. They learn in the context of a tight-knit community that includes peers, faculty, and family members of diverse backgrounds who celebrate each other’s differences. Graduates emerge as capable leaders with deep self-knowledge, sharply tuned academic skills, and empathy for others, well prepared for the area’s top public and independent schools.
