This school is a hidden gem in Westfield! The staff is the best and they truly care and love the children that they work with. Because everyone is so devoted to education - the kids learn and love learning. Even the science fair was fun! I had never heard of Montessori learning until we took our daughter there - and now I wish I could have had those opportunities as a child! Best place for any kid!!

There is no other school I know of that takes such a hands on approach to helping your child in all areas of his or her life. In Children's House they learned hands on daily life skills and progressed into geography, math, reading, history, science and so much more. My kindergardner knows all the continents, the 50 states, and all the countries in 4 continents, just started reading chapter books, and has been working on division with concrete materials. And while my daughter had the opportunity to jump ahead and go as far she wanted, my son in second grade had difficulty with some math and reading. So even as he worked on building those skills he progressed and enjoyed history, science, and geography. There aren't words to express how happy we are with Mrs. Lyman and all the teachers at MSW!

Our family has been at Montessori School of Westfield for 6 years now. I knew nothing about Montessori learning until we went there. It is a wonderful way for a child to learn! I wish more people knew about Montessori learning! MSW is beautiful and the staff is great! We love it!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
