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!

Learning by Doing
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.
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!
It’s going to be a STEAMy summer at MCH!
