School’s new Montessori program teaches lessons beyond classroom

0

Lorenzo De Zavala Elementary School has two new mixed-age Montessori classrooms that have been a big success for the students and campus.

The classrooms have 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-year-olds working and learning together.

“We have materials that really help the children develop their independence and building their empathy and kindness towards others,” said Marianne Carranza, a Montessori teacher at the school.

Alejandra Abundis, a parent of a student in a Montessori classroom, said it’s been a great fit for her child.

“What she learns in the classroom, she applies to everywhere she goes,” Abundis said.

For students interested in a Montessori school or classroom,  the window to apply to attend a Dallas ISD Montessori school is open now through Jan. 31. Go here to apply and learn more.
