NEWS FLASH: UPPER SCHOOL IS HAPPENING!
“these and other similar ideas that will awaken a realization of the power of man and the greatness of civilization should be presented in a form that will stir genuine emotion, …..” – Dr. Maria Montessori
Great feedback is pouring in to the news that Hershey Montessori School continues to grow as we add an Upper School (grades 10 – 12) in August 2015. The Upper School will be centered on the operation of the farm and its related business as a focal point for student responsibility and entrepreneurship. It will also take students into the local community to pursue integrated studies addressing issues of social and environmental impact. Our students work will also connect them to experience the roles and activity of county government, such as the judicial, health, community and resource management and related processes in the local county seat of Chardon.
“Another aspect of history is that which deals with the effect on humanity of the geographical environment, (and) of contact between different peoples,……” – Dr. Maria Montessori
Continuing with the success of a land-based Montessori model, Hershey students can choose to extend their work and intellectual development in the high school academic subjects. Among the highly integrated components of experiential and project based learning our students will continue their studies in the disciplines of mathematics, language, sciences and humanities. Moral development, self expression and valorization for real contribution underlie their projects. In the appendices of Dr. Montessori’s work, “From Childhood to Adolescence” we can understand this education as the preparation for adult life frames their study
1. The study of the earth and of living things
2. The study of human progress and the building up of civilization (in connection with the sciences)
3. The study of the history of mankind
