Montessori schools are unique in their approach to measuring student success.
West Side Montessori focuses on nurturing a love of learning by teaching children how to work, including: organizing time and space; accepting responsibility for their own learning; taking appropriate risks; respecting the environment and the needs of others; and creating a democratic community.
Success in reaching these goals is measured in a number of ways including: teacher observations, self-correcting work, work plans, student self-evaluations, performance rubrics, portfolios of written work, weekly reports to parents, parent conferences, grade cards, student presentations and, to a lesser degree, content specific tests.
West Side Montessori is an independent, accredited Montessori school educating children 13 months through 8th grade (preschool, kindergarten, elementary school and middle school). We are one of the leading private schools in Toledo, and the nation.
