Hudson Country Montessori School- New Rochelle

  • Dr. Montessori observed that no two children learn at the same pace or necessarily in the same way.
  • She developed a method of teaching children individually and through small groups to let students excel to their highest potential in every area of the curriculum. The result is more motivated and enthusiastic students who typicallly work one to two years ahead of grade level.
  • When not working with a teacher, students work independantly, interdependently, or collaboratevely on multi-discipline projects that afford an abundance of hands-on learning experiences.
  • Our teachers role is not so much to teach but to direct, guide and mentor and to ask questions that challenge and inspire higher level thinking.

Private school tuition seems to go nowhere but up. We look at some of the reasons why and offer the opinion that a private school education is still good value.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
