Whitby School is an 18 month through Grade 8 private school in backcountry Greenwich serving students throughout Westchester and Fairfield County. Whitby is the only school triple accredited by the American Montessori Society (through Grade 2), the International Baccalaureate Organization and the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools. A Whitby education is about allowing students to define success on their own terms by inspiring their love of learning, broadening their sense of responsibility, developing their critical thinking skills and empowering them to take action in a global community.
Whitby School was founded in 1958 and led a Montessori revival in the United States. The school has been pioneering student-centered education since its inception, and played a significant role in founding the American Montessori Society. In 2009 Whitby became the first school in the world to combine International Baccalaureate and Montessori in an early childhood program. 60 years after its founding, Whitby’s community continues to celebrate open minds, big ideas, and infinite possibilities.
