School Profile

  • Wauwatosa Montessori is one of the District's two charter school options and is one of the District's newest schools, having opened in 2012.

    The school is located on the lower level of the Fisher Administrative building at 12121 West North Ave.

    We are unique in that we do not serve specific neighborhoods as our student enrollment is not directed by boundary lines, rather a lottery system.

    The Wauwatosa Montessori School's mission is to provide children with an authentic Montessori education that will foster a love of learning, self-confidence, personal creativity, and an entrepreneurial spirit. Our Child-Centered program will assist individual children to discover their true potential through the nurturing of their intelligence and creativity through an environment and methodology that is designed to facilitate the development of the child’s independence and sense of personal empowerment.

     Our Children's House serves grades 4K and 5K, Lower Elementary grades are 1st-3rd, and Upper Elementary serves grades 4th-6th. The Adolescent Program serves students in 7th and 8th grade.
