"Our 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.
As we 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!
