"Being new to Montessori schools, I was quickly impressed with the HMS approach to excellence in all fields- from the arts to science to entrepreneurship. Even more impressive was watching HMS develop active, ethically responsible members of the local and global community. I'm proud to be given the opportunity to help continue that legacy."
