## Our Mission

At Higher Ground Education, we're driven by a deep desire to bring about widespread change in education today. 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 that the key to international education reform lies in modernizing and mainstreaming the hugely impactful Montessori pedagogy.

Since our founding in 2016, we have opened 47 beautiful schools across the U.S. serving students from birth through high school. We have also launched an innovative training organization to fuel our growth. We're on track to open 20 schools in the next 12 months (including international schools in Europe and China!), and plan to continue opening 20+ per year.
