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 have added an Upper School starting with grade 10 in August of 2015. The Upper School is centered on the operation of the farm and its related business as a focal point for student responsibility and entrepreneurship. It is also taking students into the local community to pursue integrated studies addressing issues of social and environmental impact. Our students work also connects 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 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 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

The We Are Montessori Project is found on a Facebook fan page and features alumni who have shared their stories about their Montessori experience as well as the successes they have enjoyed since leaving their Montessori schools.

Alumni like you are the best ambassadors for Montessori education. If you are interested in participating or learning more about this project, go to (here you can review and/or complete an alumnus profile). On Facebook, search for “We Are Montessori” or go to
