Middle School (Grades 7 & 8)

It is the education of adolescents that is important because adolescence is the time when the child enters on the state of adulthood and becomes a member of society.
– Maria Montessori
WMS Middle School
In September 2018, Wilmington Montessori School extended its programming to include middle school, serving students through eighth grade and preparing them for success in high school. The program is based on Montessori principles, while also offering the best practices in educational pedagogy such as flipped learning, including online lessons to support each student as they learn at their own pace.


Home Learning Plans - For COVID-19 Related Closures

For middle school students, the move to home learning plans required less adjustment than our younger students. While our oldest students are missing their daily face-to-face interactions with friends and teachers, they are accustomed to working independently, flipped learning and completing assignments using Google Classroom. At both of these levels, students meet as a class each morning, and then move onto more individualized schedules.

Middle-schoolers also attend science, book club and Specials classes through Zoom and check in with their teacher for individual lessons and help throughout the day. This spring, they worked on persuasive essays related to the criminal justice system and inspired by their Supreme Court projects.

While at home, our oldest students remain active with two PE classes per week and after-school enrichment activities.
