  • What is UHM's teacher to student ratio?

    UHM is dedicated to providing a healthy, happy, safe, and a positive learning environment for all of our students and our amazing teaching staff. We believe a functional and stress free classroom environment is beneficial to both our students and teachers. UHM implements a teacher to student ratio that will allow our students to maximize their Montessori experience and allow our teachers to successfully implement our Montessori philosophy within our classrooms. For our Montessori Twos classroom, UHM implements approximately a 1:4 teacher to student ratio. In our Montessori Preschool classrooms, UHM implements approximately a 1:6 to 1:8 student to teacher ratio.
  • What happens if my child is not accepted?

    UHM would love to accept every student who applies to our Montessori school and program; however we are limited by the number of spaces we have available each year. If we are unable to offer admissions to your child for the requested school year, UHM will rollover your child's application at no cost for one additional year at your personal request. If you request not to have your child's application rollover to the following year, we will remove your child application from our waitlist.
