Investing in long lasting, high-impact Montessori
Stonebrook Montessori engages Cleveland’s urban children in high-quality, fully equipped Montessori classroom environments as well as with nature, the neighborhood and each other. The school produces transformative outcomes for children by starting with the very young child and serving the whole family.
A pilot class of 3- and 4-year olds began in March of 2015. By August, Stonebrook opened officially with 3 primaries and 2 elementary classrooms for 95 urban children
ages 3-8. The second year of expansion in 2016 included 4 primaries and 3 elementary classrooms for 155 children ages 3-9. The third year of expansion began with 180 children ages 3-10 and added the upper elementary classroom. With the start of the 2018-2019 school year, Stonebrook has enrolled over 200 students through age 11.
Building on a long history of Montessori education, this solid foundation serves early childhood development and shapes children’s learning patterns for life. Classrooms for the 3-6 age group are part of the public charter school and is supported through public and philanthropic dollars. The school intends to grow to serve children up to age 15 by 2023.

Hershey Montessori Adolescent Community
The Huntsburg Campus of Hershey Montessori School has a working farm, residential house, program barns, bio-shelter and classroom buildings on 97 acres of predominantly wooded land. It is the first farm school model of its kind to fully implement Dr. Montessori's ideas about education for adolescents ages 12 to 18.
Hershey Montessori children come from all over the world and represent a range of socio-economic backgrounds, races, religions and cultures. Because the Hershey Montessori program is tailored to individual developmental needs, students of varying abilities thrive as they learn to live and work together in the community.
