We encourage you to come on a tour, explore our website, call or email us with questions, and see for yourself all that BHMS and Montessori education has to offer children from age two through the eighth grade.

We are proud that BHMS is jointly accredited by the New York Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS) and the American Montessori Society (AMS). The School is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). We are also proud of our recruitment efforts with Early Steps, A Better Chance, and Prep for Prep.
