Montessori HS UpdateUpdate.jpg

We had a great meeting with Cheryl McCosh, the FOM Representative for Garden Oaks Montessori, as well as the Chair of the High School Committee for FOM (Friends of Montessori). She explained the steps needed in order for HISD to consider planning a Montessori High School - basically, we need massive support from 6th and 7th grade families!

But, what is a Montessori High School, anyway? What makes it different/special? Stay tuned and we'll bring you all the facts!
