Grades: PK-9 | 118 students
Each airy classroom is light-filled from the large south-facing windows and includes natural materials and a dedicated kitchen area. All of the classrooms open directly to outdoor classroom space, gardens, and play areas.
The Primary (Children's House) classroom environment is carefully designed to meet the needs of students between the ages of 3 and 6, who are described by Dr. Montessori as possessing “absorbent minds.” Children are given sequenced lessons designed to increase their skill and independence. Once they have been introduced to the activities and materials, children enjoy choosing their own work.
The 9.5 acre campus, adjacent to hundreds of acres of conservation land, offers many opportunities for exploration of the natural world, including the trails and wildlife of Spaulding Forest and Dunklee Pond. As a former working apple orchard, the site offers a glimpse into the rich history of Hollis.
Dr. Montessori observed that elementary children can be characterized by their reasoning minds, their ability to abstract and imagine, and their passion for research and exploration. This is an age when creativity, learning, cooperation, imagination, and responsibility all grow and thrive. Our Elementary Program for students in 1st-6th grade is designed to encourage children to wonder, work and explore.
Hollis Montessori is an independent, non-profit school providing authentic Montessori education for children age 3 through 9th grade.
Students thrive in our beautiful classrooms, guided by our AMI certified faculty, but most of all inspired by their own curiosity and love of learning.
Tours and classroom observations held weekly.
