Welcome to Washington Montessori!
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are one of three public Montessori schools in Guilford County. We use a butterfly in our school shield to represent the transformation our school has made over the past 5 years. Our school colors are blue and gold. We have 415 students and 64 staff members, 23 of which are classroom teachers.
At Washington we live by four Village Codes, Respect Yourself, Respect Others, Respect Learning and Do the Right Thing!
Washington is part of the Southeastern Region and Dr. Phyllis Martin is our Regional Superintendent. Click Here for further information on the Southeastern Region.
The mission of Washington Montessori School is to develop and maintain a caring, positive student-centered learning environment emphasizing academic and social achievement.
Washington Street School was established in 1915. At that time Washington housed students in the 1st-12th grade. It was one of the first schools for African American children built in the city of Greensboro. Several years later Washington Street School was renamed Washington Elementary School and it began serving only 1st-5th grade students. From 1989-1992 Washington went through another change as it became Washington School of Math, Science, and Technology. 1989 was the same year they also added Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes. During the 2007-2008 school year Washington became a Montessori magnet school as it continues to be today.
