- Hawai Montessori School was started by a group of parents who were searching for an educational program that would meet their goals of child-centered teaching and learning.
- High academic standards were also a priority. Over the years we have grown from that first small Primary class (3-6 year old) and now our school has a Toddler Program, two Primary classes, and an Upper and Lower Elementary class.
- Current enrollment is 85. Hawai Montessori School is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as an independent 501(3)c not-for-profit organization.
- As an independent school, we create our own programs and operate without the financial support of state or federal funds.
- We are also not subsidized by any religious organizations. HMS is run by a Board of Directors and is independent from any local school boards.
- We rely on financial support from tuition income, grants, fundraising, and our Annual Fund.

May I ask does your school accept international student (PK) for a short period, i.e. 2-4 weeks ?

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
