Hammond Westside Montessori strives to create a rigorous, Montessori environment in which all students can achieve to their potential, and where all people respect themselves, others, and our environment.

    Art Gala

    Our Art Gala was a huge success on Thursday, April 21. The artwork was absolutely beautiful! All students who had a role whether they were part of the choir, mimes, or student ambassadors did a fantastic job. We are so very proud of you! This event could not take place with the creativity of our teachers, Mrs. Castle, and students. A special thank you to all those who helped in making this event so  special for our students, parents, families, and community. It is always a pleasure to celebrate our students’ success and to showcase the many, wonderful talents at HWEM. Click on the image to see more pictures of the fabulous art work.

    Model Montessorians at HWMS

    The teachers at Hammond Westside Montessori select a Model Montessorian of the Month to be recognized for exhibiting characteristics that uphold the philosophy of Montessori Education.  These students produce quality work, mentor their peers, and respect themselves, others, and their environment. We celebrated our March Model Montessorians of the Month on Tuesday, April 19, 2016.
