Let's Grow!

"The very first time I drove onto school grounds I felt at home. I knew we'd found a good place for our children to grow," said S.F., WCEC parent.

 Children love our school where they can thrive in small classes and with experiential learning.  



"Mom, it's okay if we move as long as I can still go to my school," said A.F., World Community Education Center (WCEC) , junior high student.
Parents show their appreciation for the school by volunteering in many ways including in building projects on Family Work Days



WCEC is a Montessori-based PK– 12th grade school. Our misson is to foster a lifelong love of learning and service. We are a small school with big ideas. In a woodland setting, children can make real connections from their subjects to the natural world right outside the door! To learn more about our school, visit WCEC’s website Click here




We are attracting more students and so we need more teachers!  
Growth in our student population over the last several years indicates that many parents desire to enroll their children in a school with small class size, respect for individual learners, and shared values as the basis for classroom behavior and effective, brain-based, student-centered learning. In order to make these learning opportunities available to more families, we need to hire one or more additional teachers.

 


Help us to serve more families! Please make a tax-deductible donation to help “Grow Our School.” Our gratitude will know no bounds. Our campaign is running through May 20th, so we hope you will do your part today!
