The Watson Hall School is a privately owned educational program located in the Catonsville Community of Baltimore. Founded in 2010 by a Montessori educator and a Montessori parent, their objective is to provide a quality Montessori program that is accessible to all families. A true staple of the local community in Catonsville, Watson Hall staff members treat students and their parents like family.
According to Dr. Maria Montessori, “All victories and all human progress are dependent on the strength that comes from within.” The Watson Hall School believes in the intrinsic power of each individual. This power begins in the womb and is developed over our lifespan. The Watson Hall School provides an interdisciplinary approach to education using the Montessori philosophy which supports the unique mind, body, and spirit of each child.
The Watson Hall School provides an interdisciplinary approach to education for children 2-9 years of age. They offer three developmental program levels.
