When it comes to education, what do you want for your child?

Hudson Montessori School offers a close-knit community, one where students are known and learn at their own pace. Our approach capitalizes on children’s natural curiosity and encourages skills such as thinking critically, persisting through problem solving and making connections across disciplines. Working on teams and independently, students are guided to achieve their personal best. They leave HMS well prepared for high school and beyond.


















We follow the child, helping each discover what he or she loves. Then we support them as they dive into their work, letting them own their learning.



We nurture children’s natural curiosity by designing individual lesson plans. Because students participate in putting that plan together, they’re driven by their own internal motivation.



We honor the excitement and pride students feel when they’ve mastered something difficult—whether it’s tying their shoes or solving multi-variable equations. Then we guide them to the next challenge.



We believe students learn best in an environment where they’re known for who they are and appreciated for what they contribute to the community.
