Why choose HHMS for your child?

We are a CCMA accredited Montessori school for ages 2.5 to grade 8 - We are the only Montessori school in the Orangeville area that is accredited by the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA), the best assurance of an authentic Montessori education.

Our teachers are caring, committed and highly experienced -  Our teachers have many years of experience, are highly qualified, and Montessori MACTE certified. They are highly committed and care deeply about each and every child.

Every child's well-being and happiness comes first - We know that children are only able to learn if they have a feeling of both safety and belonging. We actively cultivate an atmosphere of acceptance and collaboration. The result is a positive, supportive learning community with happy, engaged children. 

We have a welcoming, inclusive community that feels like family - There are many opportunities for family involvement in the school community. We welcome and celebrate the diversity of our families.  

Individualized approach - We have an individualized approach to education that helps each child reach their full potential in all areas of study. Every child is celebrated for their unique strengths and optimally challenged in both areas of strength and weakness. Students who have the ability may advance well beyond their grade level, while students who struggle in a certain area are given one on one assistance to help them reach their full potential.

We instill confidence and independence in every child - There are opportunities for all children to take initiative, to be a leader, and to mentor others. Our students become confident in self expression and public speaking on stage through our drama program, Literary Tea, Celebration of Light and Spring Soiree events.

Outdoor education and Forest Friday - One of our passions is to connect children to the natural world. Whether it be through our weekly Forest Friday nature immersion program, tending to our school garden, nature walks on our trails, planting trees, outdoor ed field trips, or middle school camping trips, our students develop a deep love and appreciation for the natural world. 

Social-Emotional Learning program -   From the age of three, we use daily opportunities as they arise to teach grace and courtesy, conflict resolutions skills, and to model kindness and compassion.We teach relationship and communication skills, leadership skills, mindfulness, and emotional self-awareness in a weekly program in the Elementary and Middle School classes.  

French for all ages - From the age of three all of our students learn to speak and understand French. We use songs, games, stories and drama to make learning French fun and accessible. 

Physical Education- Our Elementary and Middle School phys.ed. program is very diverse and taught by specialists in the community. Students participate in bouldering and rock climbing, tennis, squash, skiing, volleyball, basketball, track and field, soccer, dance, yoga, gymnastics and more, taught by specialists in the community.
