Who we are

Allen Montessori Academy was established in 1982 and it was the first, original Montessori school in Allen, Texas.

Our mission is to offer a warm, loving, high quality, year-round education to children 6 weeks to age 6 years old.

We are a school that awakens children's imaginations to the limitless possibilities in life, and a community in which children and adults find friendships and support. As the first formal educational experience for our students, our program is designed to provide a lasting foundation of skills and positive attitudes to support a lifetime of learning.

At our school, everyone is encouraged to ask questions and broaden their understandings of themselves, others, and the world around them. We incorporate the values and methodology developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Our classrooms are structured to address each child's individual needs, strengths and passions.

Success in our school is directly related to our Montessori certified, dedicated teachers, (some of whom have been with Allen Montessori Academy for over 12 years, others more than 6) and the belief in which children develop of themselves as capable, self-directed, and independent. Dr. Maria Montessori developed her specialized, hands-on curriculum methods over a century ago based on years of observing children learning. Each classroom environment contains a wide range of materials that attract the childís interest and present concepts in a carefully sequenced order, under the watchful guidance of Montessori-prepared teachers.

Testimonials

My son has attended Allen Montessori Academy for 2 years. He began in the baby room and just completed another year in the toddler room with Miss Grace. It has been a fantastic experience in every way. I am a teacher myself and very picky. I chose AMA because of the teachers and feel of the school. It feels like family. This last year, my son learned by leaps and bounds. My family can not believe his skills and knowledge base. He loves going to "his school". He just turned 3 and is beginning to read. They have an activity room and our favorite, the library. Every day when we leave, he looks forward to taking a book and in the morning when we arrive, he puts it back. Even the teachers from other classes know us and he is so well loved and cared for. As a parent who had a hard time going bac...
My child has been going to AMA for 2 years now and we are very happy with the management, staff, curriculum, lunch program, all the enrichment programs. The management keeps in touch with all the parents through e-mails, newsletters, calendars. My child is learning so much academically as well as manners. We love the school and highly recommend it!
My daughter is now 20 months old, and she has attended Allen Montessori Academy in Allen, TX since she was 3 months old. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Allen Montessori Academy! During the day when I am at work, I feel very assured knowing that my daughter is being loved and cared for in such a wonderful educational environment. My daughter absolutely loves her schooling, and I am very pleased that she considers her school such a positive place to be. The entire staff at Allen Montessori Academy is knowledgeable, caring, attentive, loving, and trustworthy. I know I owe a lot of my daughter's advanced development to her schooling at Allen Montessori Academy. At just 20 months old she loves to read, she shows concern and respect for other children, she says please and thank you, ...
I have volunteered at AMA during past summer months and the one thing that puts it far and above other schools is the teaching staff. The teachers here do focus on providing the best Montessori education, and thus laying a sound foundation that will help them in their future educational careers. However, they go past just laying an educational foundation, but help to shape and mold the character of their students. The students learn to respect others, themselves, and their education. They learn valuable life skills that sometimes get overlooked, but that will probably help them more.
My daughter and my son have both attended Allen Montessori. My daughter was only there for a year before she entered Kindergarten. As a school teacher I was very impressed with what she learned while she was at Allen Montessori. She was reading and doing simple math before entering Kindergarten in just a years time. The teachers at Allen Montessori are very experienced compared to some of the other Montessori schools in town. My son has been at the school for two years, and will start his third year in August. I have been equally pleased with his progress at the school. It was in no time at all that he was coloring in the lines at three years old, and he has grown so much in his learning with math, and reading. I have been very pleased with the teachers at Allen Montessori. They know what ...
