Where were Montessori High School Students during the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse?

In totality. The best part of learning is experience, and we do not sacrifice missing the chance of a lifetime. While other high schools were cancelling school, MHS staff was planning the best route and site to view totality. We spent the first official school day experiencing the phenomenon that has puzzled and frightened our ancestors, and amazed us!

Erdkinder

The essence of Montessori tradition is whole education, which includes a connection to nature. Every year, Montessori High School provides two trip experiences, including the fall, Erdkinder trip and a "city" trip.  The trips are designed for students to gain confidence and understanding of nature, and also be able to maneuver in the challenges of a large city.
