Montessori is a time-tested, child-centered approach to education that empowers children to become confident, creative, critical thinkers. HRIMS allows all of this to happen in a culturally diverse and peaceful community environment.
Established in 1992, Hampton Roads International Montessori School encourages students to learn at a pace with which they are comfortable, giving them the freedom and drive to succeed and reach new levels academically and socially. The Montessori classroom is designed to facilitate the independent development of the child. Our environment meets the needs of young children to adapt, explore, learn, grow, and reach their full potential as lifelong learners.
Our mission is to nurture the development of each child to reach his fullest potential in a diverse environment that is firmly grounded in the Montessori philosophy.
