Everything grows at its own pace.

We are a pre-school for children ages 2 to 6. Guided by the Montessori philosophy, we are dedicated to fostering independence, social skills, emotional well-being, and the love of learning. Our classroom is a full-fledged Montessori environment that also offers Spanish lessons, gardening, Art, Music education and more. We believe in the connection between the children and their teachers and friends, therefore our single classroom is low ratio with 25 or less children and 3 teachers in one multi-age class. HMS is guided by Khuloud Solomon, the school’s founder and an accredited Montessori teacher with 14 years of experience.

HMS is open from 8:00 am till 6:00 pm five days a week. We have a 10.5 month school year, closed in July so that our teachers can rejuvenate. We generally follow AISD’s schedule for holidays, including Thanksgiving, Christmas/New Years and Spring Break.

Highland Montessori School is a Texas non-profit corporation, 501(c )(3) status approved in July 2014. We dedicate our school’s revenue to enrich our school program through teacher retention and quality Montessori materials. HMS will happily accept donations from the public to help us (1) gain the capital necessary to acquire/build our own building and (2) assist families who cannot afford private pre-school tuition. Our Board of Directors consists of Chloe Love (President), Vivian Breaux (Treasurer), and Caroline Wilson (Secretary).

We believe in Simplicity, and we are on a Mission.
