We hear this often from former West Hills' students enrolling their own children in our program. It always makes us smile because the story of West Hills Montessori is about multiple generations stepping into the same vision.

We opened our first Montessori classroom in 1968, in what has come to be known as the "Little Red Schoolhouse " on SW Vermont Street in Portland.
Seven years ago we opened our Lake Oswego campus, a beautiful facility in the West Lake neighborhood, right off I-5. The Montessori Pathways program is our non-profit sister school which offers quality primary (ages 3 - 6) classroom experiences within an integrated environment that serves both handicapped and non-handicapped children.

Today, West Hills Montessori has 11 classrooms at three different campuses serving children ages 15 months - 12 years. We are committed to the growth and development of each individual child. This commitment to the "whole child" and his/her well-being remains the foundation for our community.

As one of the oldest Montessori programs in Oregon, West Hills has for decades provided the highest quality educational experiences for our students, while spreading awareness and helping to build and support the regional Montessori community. Founder, Nancy H., was instrumental in bringing AMI Montessori Teacher Training to Portland in 1979. West Hills continues to partner with the Montessori Institute NW to host student teachers during each school year. All West Hills teachers are certified by the Association Montessori Internationale.

Over the years our classrooms have multiplied but our mission has remained the same. Generations of children have passed through our doors and gone on to succeed in secondary school and in life. This is our proud legacy. We 're honored to have earned your trust, and look forward to many more years offering the exceptional learning experiences upon which lifelong success is built.
