Fundamental to the Montessori philosophy is the belief that one should not only understand the world in which he lives but also be a contributing member to that world. Therefore one’s lifework should have significance both for the individual and for society. To that end, Hampton Roads International Montessori School instills and inspires an altruistic spirit in our students and school community, reaching out globally, nationally and locally.
