No longer children but not yet adults, Montessori recognized adolescence as a time of rapid growth, not unlike the very first years of life. The Upper School provides the ideal setting for students to expand their knowledge and embark on adult-like responsibilities, resulting in a solid, unique foundation for young adulthood.

Beyond intellectual development, the goal of the Upper School is to guide students to become active citizens and fully informed program solvers within the Hollis Montessori community and beyond. 

Classroom subjects are explored in an integrated manner, where students grapple with real-world issues while honing their skills in math, economics, science, humanities, language and writing. We focus upon the development of a successful process and innovative approach, rather than rewarding an expected answer.
