Brooklyn Heights Montessori could not be the exceptional school it is today  without the generous financial support of the entire BHMS community—parents, grandparents, relatives and friends, Trustees, alumnae/i families, faculty and staff, and others. That’s why The Brooklyn Heights Montessori Fund, the name of the school's annual fund, is the single most important fundraising initiative at our School.
