Messiah Montessori International School of Houma is a State accredited private nonpublic school designed to create confident, self-motivated and academically and socially prepared children. Messiah has an international faculty, international student body, and international curriculum. Messiah is a French and Spanish foreign language immersion school with a World Class educational program. International residents who move to our region appreciate having Messiah available to them for their children's education. Montessori Education is time-tested, time-proven and timeless. Montessori education is a common-sense, child-centered, hands-on approach to learning that motivates students to become independent learners who know how to think and who learn how to learn. Messiah students have the advantage to progress to their full potential. At Messiah, you will find a school where children are treated with respect, the atmosphere is loving, and the learning possibilities are endless. Messiah is the "School of Choice" for the Houma region. Parents owe it to themselves and their children, to schedule a visit to Messiah to discover the school where children are happy and excited to learn.
