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.
