Please mark your calendar for this incredible evening and stay tuned for the full schedule of events to come.
Your attendance and financial support will enhance the lives of Hershey students from birth through graduation as the funds raised go directly to benefit these children by covering expenses that tuition does not.

We look forward to our Timeless celebration with you!

Abriella Minotti, a senior at Hershey Montessori School, recently spoke at the State of Geauga forum held at Kent State University’s Geauga campus. A group of approximately 150 politicians, business owners, educators and residents gathered to hear and to talk about what’s happening in Geauga County. The views shared reflected past progress, current status, and gave a glimpse into the future.
Minotti addressed the topic of Education, including the innovative programs at Hershey’s Huntsburg campus, which is home to the school’s Adolescent program. She extended an open invitation to the Geauga County community to visit Hershey Montessori School.
As a senior, Minotti serves as an adjunct staff member for Hershey’s Admissions Department where she provides presentations and tours to families, individuals, and organizations interested in learning more about the school.

Other speakers addressed the areas of Agriculture, Arts & Leisure, Business, Government, Health & Safety, and Human Services.
Hershey Montessori School’s Upper School students recently welcomed local guest speaker Marvin Montgomery, a motivational speaker and sales trainer with more than 30 years of experience.
Hershey students were enlightened as Montgomery shared insights throughout his presentation, “The Power of Positive Thinking.” Montgomery demonstrated how having a positive attitude can change a person’s outlook on life. Students and staff alike enjoyed his inspirational speech as they laughed and participated with Montgomery’s examples and provided stories of their own.
Students were able to see how their outlook impacts their outcome. If they wake up in a bad mood and expect to have a terrible day, that is most likely what will happen. However, if they wake up expecting to have a great day, it is more likely to be a great day.
Montgomery stressed the importance of looking on the bright side and finding the positive in every situation. The students were able to relate to how their outlook on events in their life had impacted the outcome of a situation.
Hershey Montessori School staff and students thank Montgomery for his simple, yet profound, tips. Everyone walked away with food for thought on how to approach each day and the events of their life.
“Change is a great thing,” Montgomery said, “Don’t just go through the motions. If something is bothering you, change it.”
Our first ever referral drive has kicked off and we are asking you to tell your friends about us!
We want to share more Montessori with more families who value quality education the same as you do. We believe you can help us find them.
Hershey meets the usual checklist that many families look for in a school, such as individualized attention, great teachers, an excellent education, and a safe school environment. However, Hershey also offers a personalized academic pace based on the natural development of the whole child, scientific teaching methods, stress reducing connections to nature, meaningful social connections, and a strong emphasis on critical thinking and community.
It’s not surprising that parents often cite the intentional community we create as one of the most compelling reasons to enroll. That is why we are seeking referrals from those who know and love Hershey. Families who share the same goals for their children create a community that benefits everyone – children, parents, and teachers alike.
Over the last 40 years our parents and students have been our best source for growing our community. Sharing good news and stories about Hershey Montessori School to trusted family, friends and neighbors has helped to create and build upon the close-knit Hershey community that we all cherish.
In gratitude for every referred visitor who tours our school, we are placing the name of the referrer in a quarterly drawing for a basket filled with beautifully handcrafted items made by our microeconomy students at our Huntsburg campus, along with a Hershey Montessori apparel item.
Growing together means that we will get to experience more of what is so beautiful to Hershey – our connections.
Each year, we are moved by the outcomes we see in our students as they grow and develop as creative and resilient human beings. Now more than ever, we are compelled to provide more Montessori to more children. Help us to reach more children and adolescents with the Montessori methods and ideals that we all know and love: grace, peace, respect, unity, and the like.
We hope you will share in our passion for this growth.
Members of the graduating classes of 2018 and 2019 recently returned home to Hershey Montessori School for its annual Alumni Day.
The graduates hosted a panel discussion with current students where they reflected on their time at Hershey and answered questions about life after high school. The graduates went on to share valuable insights regarding their transition to college, making new friends, and various tips to help students as they continue their own journey in the years to come.
The alumni were also gracious in their time as they participated in a Q&A session with Hershey parents via video conference.
We are grateful to all who were able to join us for this informative, heart-warming, welcome home event.
Many thanks to Mathematics, Business and Microeconomy Guide, Jennifer Snead, for organizing this event, and to all of the alumni for taking the time to share their wisdom with the Hershey community.
Imagine a beautiful place filled with activities that are designed around your needs, calling to your curiosity and imagination. Picture a community where children are surrounded by people who understand, encourage and challenge their strengths. Envision a child learning each day, immersed in a culture of respect and a course of study based upon personal interest and engagement.
Serving children from birth through age 18, Hershey offers challenging, highly individualized programs that focus on the uniqueness of each child.
