Hawai'i Montessori Schools - Kamuela
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.
