Dear MSH Families,
Thank you for your commitment to the Montessori School of Huntsville. We are grateful for the opportunity to educate your children and help them realize their rich potential. I can hardly believe we have arrived at re-enrollment. Time certainly flies when you are having fun guiding children through the learning process.
We never cease to be amazed by the progress made by students and teachers each year. This year has truly been a year for growth. Our toddler program has nearly doubled, and our elementary teachers have enjoyed the opportunity to add to their already substantial training. In our primary classes, lead teachers have been especially pleased with the progress made by our kindergarteners in their focused small groups. In addition to expanding our outdoor classroom in the months to come, we’ve added wonderful materials to our classrooms thanks to your generosity.
We understand the financial commitment you make when you enroll your child at MSH. We have worked very hard this year to continue to act frugally while still providing teachers with the materials they need to provide exceptional instruction. In order to improve the salaries of our teaching staff and continue to improve our classrooms, you will notice a slight increase of three percent in tuition. Elementary parents will note there is no longer an increase for upper elementary tuition.
We will continue the opportunity for families to curb their tuition cost through the student referral program. A family who recruits a new enrollee to the program will receive a tuition reduction of $100. More information about this program is enclosed on the attached fee list. Word of mouth is our greatest recruitment tool, and we want to offer recognition to those families who encourage others to experience the rich opportunities here at MSH. We are also exploring ways to provide financial aid to families who qualify.
We know all our parents work hard to provide the very best learning experiences for their children. We strongly believe that a Montessori education is the best opportunity you can give your child. It prepares children to deal with a complex world in a competent and confident manner; both academically and socially. We hope you will find that MSH is the best educational environment and will join us for another wonderful year of learning!
