Imagine a school without intrusive bells.
Visualize a room that is bright, warm and welcoming. Now picture twenty students, ages 6, 7 and 8, all completely focused on a lesson of their choice. They work undisturbed, at their own pace, for as long as they are engaged. Welcome to Elementary School at HCMS.
In a multi-age elementary Montessori classroom, students learn by leading and through peer collaboration.
Motivation is intrinsic and curiosity leads to learning. Students learn grace and courtesy, interact with each other respectfully, value diversity and develop lifetime friendships. Parents, teachers and the school community are welcoming and work in partnership to maximize every child’s education.
Montessori breaks the Elementary program into Lower Elementary (grades 1-3) and Upper Elementary (grades 4-5).
