Whitby School Wins Dual Accreditation

Since 1958, Whitby School, located on 25 beautiful acres in Greenwich, has created an environment for students aged 14 months through grade eight that excites their intellect, fosters self-esteem and inspires a passion for learning, yielding academic and personal success. Recognized as the birthplace of the American Montessori Society (AMS) and offering the region’s premier early childhood program, Whitby continues as an innovator in education by becoming the first AMS accredited school to also integrate the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) program from Pre-K through eighth grade. One of the most highly regarded educational programs in the world and a seamless extension of Montessori practice and philosophy, IB at Whitby further develops the intellectual, emotional and social skills students need to learn and succeed in a rapidly globalizing world. Whitby’s expert faculty, small classroom size and student/faculty ratio of 7:1 also help to ensure a tailored focus on each student. Whitby also incorporates music, drama, art, multiple foreign languages, team sports and a modern library, leveraging technology to enhance learning. Whitby Middle School students study and perform Shakespeare in advance of an annual trip to Europe and have a strong track record when it comes to acceptance into excellent secondary schools.

Whitby School is located at 969 Lake Avenue in Greenwich. To visit or learn more, call 203.869.8464, email [email protected], or visit WhitbySchool.org.
