Hilltop Montessori School celebrated diversity with their 2017 Multicultural Festival held on January 19 at the school. Each classroom in the school adopted a different country of study, and students prepared a celebration of each country with food, cultural objects, geography, history presentations and art.
In the Montessori method, the presentations were child driven and implemented solely by the students, with the faculty serving as facilitators of the projects. The countries that the students chose to honor this year include: Thailand, Russia, India, Brazil, Uganda, China, Venezuela, France and the United Kingdom. The school celebrates diversity every three years by hosting the festival at the school.
