Portrait of an Eagle: Hernando Ardila, Class of 2019

Hernando’s time at Montessori Academy of Broward, from Young Montessorian at age 3 to middle school graduate in 2019, was marked by dedication and achievement. We are humbled to have played a part in his journey, as he now takes the next exciting step in his educational path. 

With great pride, we celebrate Hernando’s acceptance into the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a freshman this fall. He will pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer science and electrical engineering, combining his passion for technology with a strong academic foundation.

Driven by a desire to become an entrepreneur in his field, Hernando is eager to make the most of his time at MIT, gaining valuable experience and expertise. We have no doubt that his Montessori background will serve him well as he navigates the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. 

We wholeheartedly wish Hernando all the best in his future endeavors. His Montessori Academy of Broward family is immensely proud of his accomplishments, and we look forward to seeing the incredible impact he will undoubtedly make in the world of technology and entrepreneurship.
