The forward-thinking ideas Maria Montessori introduced to the world over 100 years ago have withstood the test of time because they were simply based on how children develop and learn. Today many of the tenets of Montessori philosophy are supported by current brain research and more and more schools are reshaping the way they think about the educational process. BHMS is fortunate that for 54 years it has been ahead of the curve, bringing those ideas to fruition and educating students with a curriculum that ensures our graduates are ready for rigorous academics in high school and life beyond.
