Wellan Montessori School


Boston-area families choose Wellan for both educational excellence and our warm, inclusive community. Wellan’s preschool, elementary, and middle school programs each placed first as a Boston Parents “Family Favorite” in 2020.

Wellan students benefit from the unique balance of freedom and responsibility offered by the school’s Montessori-Progressive curriculum, which promotes both individually-paced academic progress and collaborative project-based learning. Graduates demonstrate strong executive function skills that enable them to succeed at Greater Boston’s top public and independent schools. Empathy, community service, innovation, and social justice are emphasized throughout the curriculum.
