What is Montessori education?


Montessori is a system of education that was developed in Italy more than 100 years ago, and has become popular throughout the world.


It relies on hands-on learning and positive reinforcement to encourage and promote children's natural curiosity about their world. 

Montessori methods have been confirmed by modern research on educational outcomes. The results are in: Montessori kids thrive!

Extracurricular Activities

All of our MCH students participate in Music, Art, Spanish, Japanese & Origami and STEM lessons during the normal school day! We coordinate informal after school activities like a casual running club, and we also offer piano lessons as an extracurricular activity (by availability). We hope to add additional extracurricular offerings soon.

Summer Camp

Our summer session runs from mid-June (end of school year) through the end of August. We have tons of fun with outdoor play, weekly field trips/activity days, and lots more! Plus, by student request, this summer we are going to do STEAM all summer long!
