Weston Primary Montessori School was formed in July 2016 by the teachers and parents of the former Glebe Primary Montessori School which was established in 1978. We are one of the few Montessori primary schools in Ireland and use the philosophy and teaching practices of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Our students hail from many different cultural backgrounds. Our past students have gone on to transition very smoothly into state secondary schools and believe their skill of self-motivated learning has helped them to be successful in state exams. We teach children between 3 and 12 years of age, with class ratios of 16 pupils to 1 Teacher. We also employ highly qualified and experienced teachers with a specific qualification in Montessori Teaching. Weston Primary Montessori has been assessed and approved by the National Education Welfare Board, in association with the Department of Education and Science.
