Westmont Montessori School - Exciting Times At Westmont High
Exciting times at Westmont High

"These are very exciting times at Westmont,” says Magnus Hanton, Principal of Westmont Montessori School in Metchosin. “It has long been a wish to upgrade our campus and offer our students a purpose-built Montessori learning environment that enhances our programming and connects with our stunning natural setting.” Westmont Montessori School’s vision is to provide a world class Montessori centre now and for generations to come. Their current strategic plan (Westmont 2020) lays out the framework for how to achieve this ambitious goal. Combining developments in both programming and physical infrastructure, the implementation of Westmont 2020 will revitalize the Westmont campus and lay a foundation for ongoing educational excellence in the Westshore.

Hanton is delighted with progress. “We have an amazing opportunity to enrich the educational foundations of the Westshore, as well as to bring our community together by providing a space where all aspects of learning are celebrated.” The new classroom building currently under construction has been designed with the many needs of Westmont and the Westshore in mind. “All Westmont classrooms are purposely designed to engage a student’s natural curiosity within an environment that is specifically prepared to maximize learning opportunities,” explains Hanton.


At the same time as revitalising the campus, Westmont has extended their educational program to include a class of grade nine students. “We are delighted to be opening our brand-new classroom building for September 2018 as well as offering classes from pre-school to grade nine with our new high school program,”
says Hanton. With a second phase of construction slated to begin in 2019, the new Westmont campus is set to become a community destination for education, recreation, arts and creativity.
