Our Mission

At Hagerstown Chilrdren’s School, our trusted educators foster self-directed learning, good work habits, self-confidence, self-reliance, and creative and critical thinking skills in the youngest members of our community. The guiding philosophy of our non-sectarian, non-public, no-profit school is based on the work of Dr. Maria Montessori, and is founded in peace education, community service, and nurturing the whole child in her pursuit of learning. As members of a larger society, we engage as neighbors and practice acts of generosity, kindness, and peace.
