“The film inspires its audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility, and is bringing communities together in re-imagining what our students and teachers are capable of doing. ” – MLTS
“…there is something special that permeates the film. It is something that educators might recognize from their own experiences – a sense of hope.” – National Math + Science Initiative
This film “…delivers a message Americans need to hear” – Huffington Post

The first floor construction has reached the point that the second floor can begin to rise. We are choosing floor finishes and begin to anticipate the beautiful Upper School spaces under construction. We are ever thankful to all our donors and our school community for their support in this exciting phase of Hershey Montessori School growth!
Major projects are well under way at the Huntsburg campus as part of the capital campaign. Obviously, our Upper School building is rising. But also, the “Bike Barn” has been converted to a beautiful auxiliary classroom and the Guren House has been renovated and expanded to become a 16 student Upper School dormitory.
The campaign will benefit both campuses by providing funding for projects, such as a strategic plan of growth for the Concord Campus’s increasing enrollment, raising additional funds for the endowment to increase sustainability for the whole school and to expand financial aid for students.
We are excited to be constructing a classroom building that is in alignment with our values. Care of the environment is a pillar of Hershey Montessori School’s core philosophy and includes implementing the highest respect possible for nature, the environment and sustainability. These values are reflected in the vision and building goals of the new Upper School classroom building.
Our school is the first in the Midwest being designed and built to Passive House Institute of the United States, PHIUS, strict design principles committed to reducing energy consumption in building practices. This will also create significant savings in operation costs.
