care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn
things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which
is called intelligence."
-- Dr. Maria Montessori
Welcome to Hudson Montessori School!
More than fifty years ago Hudson Montessori School was
founded by a small group of parents who were passionate about educating
children to reach their potential and to become citizens of the world. This passion remains today and permeates our
campus, evidenced by the belief in
the strength and potential of each child to learn and the commitment to the
development and understanding of each child, appreciating his or her own unique
talents and abilities. Dr. Maria
Montessori believed that through the education of children our world could be
changed, and this fundamental belief guides our work today.
reflect on the role of education, consider the following: our current students will graduate from
college during the 3rd decade of the 21st century, entering a world that
requires them to be able to think critically, collaborate, find creative
solutions to challenges that don't yet exist,
and communicate effectively. They will need to be curious, highly
adaptable and cognitively agile, able to analyze and synthesize information and
then apply it meaningfully. At HMS
these characteristics are carefully developed through a curriculum and
environment that emphasizes independence, intrinsic motivation, mastery, and a
true sense of community.
Please come visit Hudson Montessori School and
experience our community of learners - students, faculty, administration, and
families. It is a community that
supports and encourages each other in all areas of life and we take this
responsibility seriously. The HMS
faculty is joyful and proud of the work they do each day and our students
understand and embrace their responsibility to each other and to the community. These are the students who will
change the world - come and meet them!
