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.
