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 child’s interest and present concepts in a carefully sequenced order, under the watchful guidance of Montessori-prepared teachers.

My daughter went to Allen Montessori Academy and my son still attends this school. Trust me, this is no daycare. It is a school. My daughter moved to kindergarten (Allen ISD) and from day one she was already ahead of her class in most respects (math, art, reading, writing, behaviour, etc...) There is no doubt in my mind that Allen Montessori's education has a great deal to do with her achievements. Already, my son also seems very advanced when compared to other kids in my daughter's kindergarten class, and he still has 2 years before going to kinder! I am very comfortable with the teachers and staff: they are wonderful! Not only on academics, but also in helping educating your kids with good manners, proper eating habits, proper language skills, etc, etc... They also make the morning drop-...

My first child joined 7 years ago, then my second one and now my third one is enrolled in this school. The school may not be very fancy but its most important asset is its staff. The dedication and concern of its teachers for my child's learning are phenomenal. All teachers are certified and highly experienced. I highly recommend this school to all parents. Before joining this school, I enrolled my first child in a very fancy school. I tried that school for a whole one year and finally with lot of disappointment, I pulled her out and enrolled in Allen Montessori and since then I never thought of any other school. My youngest one looks forward to go to school everyday and she loves her teachers. The parent-teacher communication is also remarkable.
Both my sons have attended Allen Montessori on and off during the past 8 years. Both of them started reading before the age of 4 and are both very astute in Math. I attribute everything to the way they were taught at Allen Montessori. The academic rigor is second to none. Ms. Tehmina has been a God-send to our family. My older son is now a straight A student at Norton and is in the AIM (Talented and GIfted) program. His study skills have been honed so well during his 4-year stay at this school. We have kept our younger son at AMA for kindergarten for the sole purpose of further advancing his academic skills. I highly recommend this school for both its academic and family-oriented environment. Do come by for a visit so you can experience for yourself what other Montessori schools can not of...
