Eduardo Mata Montessori opened last school year as the first Montessori school of choice in Dallas ISD. As a school of choice, the campus is also the first Montessori program in the district to accept all students without a screening process.
The school serves students age three years through third grade, and it will add a grade level each year. Dual language classes are offered at both the primary and elementary levels.
The Montessori philosophy centers on the belief that children want to learn, and the classrooms provide the tools and guidance to facilitate their educational growth. At its heart, a Montessori education gives students the independence to learn on their terms, encouraging them to become lifelong learners.
