OUR MISSION IS HUGE!
At Higher Ground Education, we're driven by a deep desire to bring about widespread change in education today. The traditional method of education used in most schools today is antiquated, outdated, and broken. The world around us has changed immensely in the last 60 years, yet there have been no major changes to the education model used in most schools. To meet the needs of today's students and to bring about true progress in the world around us, we need an education model that fosters independence and develops competent, capable, action-oriented thinkers and change agents.
We believe the key to international education reform is to modernize and mainstream the international Montessori movement. It is only then that we will succeed in enabling children across the world to realize their human potential as knowledge-guided, value-oriented, efficacious beings, so that they experience, undiluted and unimpeded, the joyous process of growing into successful adults. We envision a world where every child has access to high-quality Montessori education from birth. We envision a future where Montessori educators have access to comprehensive Montessori training and ongoing leadership development throughout their careers. We envision Montessori leaders connected to a global network that supports, shares, and grows the movement together.
In the past two years, we've opened 7 beautiful schools in the U.S. and launched an innovative, blended-learning training organization to fuel our growth. We've expanded from a small team of 12 employees with a very big dream, to a world-class team of 200 people (including a Harvard MBA, Yale Ph.D., and more...). We're on track to have 20 schools in our network by January 2019 and plan to open 20+ per year each year after that.
