About Wimberley Montessori School
Wimberley Montessori School takes a whole-child approach to education. Teachers, administrators, and support staff work together to meet the intellectual, social, behavioral, and emotional needs of each and every child we serve. The Montessori curriculum is organized into a mosaic of integrated studies, in contrast with the traditional education methods in which the curriculum is compartmentalized and presented as isolated, unrelated subjects. Our course of study implements a thematic approach that ties the various disciplines of the curriculum together into studies of the physical universe, the natural world, and the human experience. Our curriculum includes language arts, (elements of reading, [primary] spelling, handwriting, grammar, literature, creative writing, and Spanish), mathematics and geometry, everyday living skills, geography, history, science, art, music, robotics and physical education. Each classroom has its own library.
