Our School

Established in 1992, HRIMS encourages students to learn at a pace with which they are comfortable, one that gives them the freedom and drive to succeed and reach new levels academically and socially.  The Montessori classroom is deliberately designed to facilitate the independent development of the child.  We create an environment that meets the innate desires and needs of young children to adapt, explore, learn, grow, and reach their full potential as a lifelong learner.

Our Mission

Our mission is to nurture the development of each child to reach his fullest potential in a culturally diverse environment that is firmly grounded in the Montessori philosophy.

Our Philosophy

Montessori education is a time tested, child-centered approach to education. It is a creative, innovative and individualized program that recognizes the natural curiosity and inherent desire of the child to learn. Children work at their own pace as they develop physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. All of this takes place in a naturally peaceful environment that is both nurturing and stimulating. With guidance from trained teachers, the child explores and discovers his world through his own hands-on experiences with specially designed, interactive learning materials. Montessori education empowers children to become confident, creative, critical thinkers.

Dr. Maria Montessori

Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 - 1952), an Italian doctor, was the first woman to practice medicine in Italy. During the early days of her career, she became involved with young children in the slums of Rome. Through her continued scientific observations she determined that children are motivated to learn from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge.


Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.
— Dr. Maria Montessori
