My children attend school at HWME and it is amazing. My children are learning everything they should be learning at their ages and more but at a reasonable pace. My children are excited about what they learn in school about science math and art. The Montessori methods are beautifully implemented in the classroom and the children are taught personal responsibility and to respect themselves others and their environment. I have observed their classrooms on a couple occasions and I was very impressed. Their teachers so far have all been dedicated and caring. They also involve family in fun ways.

All of the teachers have completed the required Montessori training and are certified as Montessori Teachers. As all Tangipahoa Schools HWEMS has adopted the Common Core Standards. These academic standards require much more rigorous teaching and learning.

My son has went to HWM for two years and I am very pleased. He has shown a huge growth in his education. His teachers the past two years have been great and not just as a teacher. They have kept their door open to me at all times. I am so pleased that I am sending my daughter to pre-k next year. The school really cares about its student.
