Hudson Country Montessori is the best private school in Westchester County, NY. Our family has several children attending Hudson ranging from Middle School down to Kindergarten. The entire staff from the moment you walk into the door is warm and friendly. Mrs. Horan is a wonderful Education Director. She truly takes the lead and makes the children and parents feel right at home. She takes her job seriously and has truly been of great benefit to Hudson's Community. The entire staff and teachers are wonderful. They are not only educators, but also become part of your family and truly help children succeed. Anyone who wants a great education and environment for their children should definitely consider enrolling their children at Hudson Country Montessori School. You will not regret it!

Wonderful school, gives kids a solid educational start in life. The teachers are very warm and caring, every child gets special attention. My daughter was there from the age of three through the 1st grade and now my son, who's two is going to start his second year. They both love Hudson. The parents are also involved and caring, there is a great familial atmosphere.

Outstanding. A warm, welcoming environment. Open door policy for the parents and excellent teachers. They have a new principal who is 'hands-on' and really cares about the students. A real pleasure

Great school, Very diverse student body, there are 3 teachers in my childs class of approx 18 students, Mrs Harrison, Miss Becky and Miss Rachel are outstanding. My child is doing extreamely well both academically and socially. Large facility makes playtime really fun for the children.Parents are really involved and contribute to all the extra events, The only downside is one of the administrators is a little uptight and grouchy but I would still highly recomend the school.

Very good school - traditional montessori approach but very warm - not cold. Children are confident and are ahead of the public schools with their academics. Very comfortable, loving and supportive environment.

This is a traditional montessori school. Teachers are dedicated and experienced and very approachable. Gentleness and respect for peers is encouraged & modeled. Strong academics and classes in art, music and spanish are offered. There is no PTA but the parents are very involved in the school. Children are curious and fun and overall there is a good vibe in the school. The only down side is in the satellite locations the class size is smaller than a traditional montessori so your child could potentially find that he/she has only one other child of his/her age and gender in the class. However they do all play together with the other classes in the playground. My children have thrived at this school.

Fabulous traditional montessori school. Serious about education, talented, hard-working teachers. Tons of art projects and music is taught by specialists once a week. There is also a monthly composer with available tapes and other information. Parents are very welcome to be involved. A wonderful school.

Teachers are fabulous and children really learn material quickly in the classes. Teachers are very approachable and communicative. Only down side we've experienced is sometimes administration assumes parents know exactly how things work here and are not entirely supportive of new parents getting acclimated.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
