Stories from High School
We interviewed one of our high school students about her experience at Westmont Montessori.
Tell us about your Montessori journey.
My name is Hannah Smith and I am a grade twelve student who has been at Westmont since pre-school. Engaging in experiential learning from a young age offered to me a deep understanding of both academics and life skills from a young age. I am passionately interested in music, writing, and psychology, all three of which my Montessori education has fostered.
What is your biggest interest? How did it develop?
I have always loved writing stories. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t working on one, and my language arts skills were always above my grade-level. Westmont always allowed me to work ahead when I needed to, and I don’t think I would have developed my same passion or skill-level if I had not been able to learn at my own pace.
Would you like to share anything else?
I don’t have much more to say, only that I am excited for the future of Westmont’s high school program and the opportunities it will offer to its students.
Thank you for reading!
