Why Schedule a Visit or Attend an Open House?

Scheduling a personal visit or attending an Open Houses gives parents and students an opportunity to learn more about Hershey Montessori School’s curriculum and culture. This time is structured to provide a better understanding of what Hershey has to offer. There are numerous benefits of an in-person visit, many of which cannot be achieved by simply browsing a school’s website. Not only will you get to see the campus, but you will also be provided valuable insight into our programs and atmosphere of our school.

What Are the Benefits of an In-person Visit?

Prospective families and students benefit greatly by an in-person visit. There is only so much that can be learned from literature, browsing a website and its videos, or even peer reviews. An in-person visit provides greater understanding through physical experience.

Here are just a few benefits:

  • You have face-to-face dialogue with school personnel and sometimes students.
  • You experience authentic classroom settings.
  • You learn more about the curriculum and will be able to differentiate between Hershey Montessori School and other schools.
  • You will gain a clearer understanding of the school’s values and its approach to education.
  • You will learn what outcomes can be expected from our Montessori education model.
  • You learn how the school communicates with you about your child’s educational progress.
  • You will get a feel for the culture of the school.
  • You will learn things that help you in your decision-making process.
  • You are given the opportunity to ask questions.
  • You will meet some really nice people! 🙂


What to Expect

You will be given a tour of the school building(s) and see our Montessori classrooms as well as our outdoor space that provides much-needed, stress-reducing connections to nature. A presentation will be given as well as time for questions and answers.



Hershey students develop into confident, articulate leaders. Hershey Montessori School is known worldwide as a leader of Montessori education.

Visiting Hershey Montessori School will inform and equip you to make the best decision for your child’s education. It will also allow you to visualize your child in the school setting and determine if it is a good fit. The feeling you get from being on campus will be an important indicator of whether the school is a good choice for your child and family. Ask questions, be open-minded, and trust your parental instincts.
