  • Pincushion Hill Montessori School is a private school located in beautiful Ashland, Massachusetts.
  • Montessori teaches students to think, not simply to memorize, feedback, and forget.
  • The basis of our approach is the simple observation that children learn most effectively through direct experience and the process of investigation and discovery.
  • No two students learn at the same pace, nor do they necessarily learn best from the same methods.
  • Our goal is to be flexible and creative in addressing each student as a unique individual.
  • The Pincushion Hill Montessori School is designed to be a school where children can blossom! We seek to inspire a passion for excellence and to nurture curiosity, creativity and imagination.
  • Our goal is to give students a fine education and to prepare them for life.
  • Our students develop into people who are fascinated by the universe, and feel compelled to understand something of life's secrets.
  • They come to see that we all belong to the Earth and to the human family.
  • Our students are prepared to succeed in high school, college and beyond.
  • They are prepared to live lives filled with quiet dignity and compassion for others.
  • This begins with the habit of community service instilled during their years in Montessori.
  • Our students are building a legacy of kindness and wonderful contributions to the world.
