Overview

Hudson County Montessori School says

Hudson Country Montessori School is a non-profit, non-sectarian, private school that offers education and wrap around care in a Montessori setting for children 8 weeks through grade 8. We are fully accredited by NEASC, AMS and NAEYC. HCMS was founded in 1972. With campuses both in New Rochelle, NY and Danbury, CT, we stand as one of the largest independent Montessori schools in the country. Before and After-School hours as well as traditional Summer Camp programming reflect our commitment to the needs of students and parents in our ever-changing society.

Curriculum

At Hudson, we follow the Montessori approach to multi-age groupings. Students work in the same classroom for a three-year cycle. Given the length of time together, students come to know their teachers as mentors.

Our students journey through a rigorous and challenging curriculum at their own intellectual pace. Each child progresses as he/she is ready for the next challenge.

Hudson is rigorously preparing children for the world of tomorrow. We inspire students to think for themselves teach them how to do their own research help them develop organized work plans challenge them to defend their own conclusions expose them to unique and diverse perspectives instill respect for different points of view

Mission Statement

At Hudson Country Montessori School, we provide the tools, teachers and support to guide each child to personal and academic success. Montessori offers an education of life-long learning – teaching skills essential for navigation in our ever changing global society. Central to the Montessori method is an emphasis on inquiry; students are encouraged to explore, question, observe, and discover. When presented through a hands-on discovery-driven model, children become fully engaged in their work and apply themselves beyond the scope of curriculum. Our students are self-motivated learners, “can do” children who readily accept challenge and actively seek knowledge.

Finance

Finance

Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.

Extracurriculars

Hudson offers a variety of instruction in the Arts; music, drama, art, photography and mixed media. We do not consider these subjects to be extracurricular, but rather a logical extension of our core courses. Additionally, physical education, both on and off-site, is considered vital for students within the framework of educating the "whole child".
