Welcome to Hilltop Montessori School

Providing life-changing Montessori programs for the youth of Steubenville.

Montessori Education Can Eliminate the Income Achievement Gap

Children ages 3-6 see great education benefits when they go to a good Montessori school in Steubenville, Ohio or anywhere. According to a 2017 study by the University of Virginia, a good Montessori program is the only educational method shown to eliminate the achievement gap due to income among peers. Throughout their later education, children from lower-income families more routinely achieve at the same high rate as their peers from higher-income families if they went to a Montessori primary program. A Montessori program at that young age gives children confidence, the ability to take ownership of their own learning, and other intangibles that don’t come with a conventional education.

Don’t miss out on a great Montessori school in Steubenville!

Yesterday it was all about birds and nests for our summer campers. They scavenged for materials to make bird nests, made bird feeders, and even ate bird’s nests for snack! Bird’s nest cookies, that is. 🪺

Mr. Tom is starting his AMI elementary course today! Wishing him all the best and praying for him to have as wonderful an experience with his course as Miss Noëlle and Miss Lucy did with their AMI primary course. 

Tom wrote about starting this course and why he’s doing it in a post on the Hilltop Children's House website. It’s worth taking the time to read. (Link to website is in our bio)
