From Whitby School

At Whitby, school is just the beginning. Our students 18 months–Grade 8 are challenged to ask big questions and solve real-world problems. As they discover their own talents and interests through authentic inquiry, they begin to see greater potential in themselves and everything around them. We respond to what works for your child and adapt their experience accordingly. As a result, they grow to be exceptionally curious, empathetic and courageous.

Founded in 1958, Whitby is the first school in the U.S. to combine Montessori with International Baccalaureate in an early education program.

Whitby School Reviews

Our family has been part of the Whitby School community for 9 years. We have a 6th grader, and a daughter who graduated last year and is now a freshman in high school. I could not more highly recommend the school. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) school it attracts families from many different countries, culturally making it wonderfully diverse. The IB curriculum and inquiry-based learning platform makes me wish I had been educated that way myself! I have also embraced the advantages of a school that finishes in 8th grade. It afforded my daughter the opportunity to reflect on her strengths and the things that she valued most in her education. The experience she gained in the application process, standardized testing, and interviews will make the college application process so much easier! She was also able to pick the high school that was the best fit for her. The transition has been seamless, she was more than adequately prepared educationally and socially.

We have an eleven-year-old and a two-year-old attending Whitby. Both of them love going to school. Both of them are developing as caring, curious, passionate learners. Whitby is our community, our extended family, a place where our children are safe, and thriving.
The teachers are really helpful, and my children (5th Grader and 3rd Grader) enjoy going here. This is our first year in Connecticut and Whitby is helping us a lot.
