At HCMS, children learn to observe, think, judge and pursue individual interests at their own speed in a manner that best meets their learning style. More than a century ago, Dr. Maria Montessori noted that “no two students learn at the same pace nor do they necessarily learn best from the same methods.” Our curriculum and teachers encourage students to develop self-discipline, confidence, independence and critical thinking skills which lead to academic success.
Reflecting the community we serve and our own values, we embrace diversity and the inherent potential in each child. At HCMS, we provide the tools, teachers and support to guide each child to personal and academic success. And from each child’s journey and growth, our community draws strength and wisdom. If indeed “it takes a village to raise a child” — Hudson Country Montessori is that village.
We begin with a deep respect for the child as a unique individual. We work from a deep concern for his or her social and emotional development, because there is far more to an education than memorizing facts.
