School Notes

  • Students are accepted into our Toddler community between 16 months and 2 years of age and our Children's House program between the ages of 3 and 4 so that they may benefit from the full 3 year cycle. In each class, children of mixed ages and abilities work together in a socially and academically dynamic environment. Children must be fully toilet-trained before starting the program. Students who are at least 6 years of age and are ready to enter a first grade class are considered for our elementary program.

I didn't know what the Montessori Philosophy was when we started with public school, but, we knew public school wasn't working for our family. So, after researching many private schools in the area we toured two. What we observed at Hampton Roads International Montessori School were children very engaged in their learning in a wonderful, comfortable environment. We are now part of the school family and volunteering in the class the children are always smiling, happy to be there, happy to be learning, and the teachers look relaxed with smiles on their faces too. The classrooms are open, bright and inviting with very few desks, and several different ages in the (Elementary) classes. The children are engaged in reading, math, music, play rehearsal, cooking/baking, making presentations etc. It is a very organic, earthy feel, teachers and staff don't raise their voices, and the children are smiling, respectful and welcoming. Montessori uses hands-on activities and tools so the children engage with the work more in depth than the traditional paper and pencil worksheets. Also, having international families and faculty allow additional learning about world cultures, languages and family life. The children are given the encouragement, tools and guidance to be successful in their life, not just in academics. Many of the children didn't want to break for the summer, and couldn't wait to return to school in the fall...I think that says it all.

My two children have been at HRIMS for 3 years. The teachers and staff are amazing! They have taught my children a love of learning. The best thing to do is come in and see for yourself!
