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 adores her teacher and staff. She has learned so much in this school, we are very happy in AMA. Big thanks to all the staff!
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.
I have two daughters, both of which have attended Allen Montessori Academy. We visited just about every major and some in-home childcare facilities before we settled on AMA. There was a night and day difference between AMA and the others. It was clear to us on our first visit that the educators at AMA were passionate about montessori teachings and practices and were not simply there to provide daycare. If you value education and are looking for a place to help your child learn both practical life and academically, AMA is that GREAT place.
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...
Our daughter has been to AMA for the past couple of years, and we have seen her grow by leaps and bounds. She loves going to school, can read books by herself, knows addition, knows geography and science. We love the environment that this school provides - teacher turnaround is virtually nonexistent. The teachers and staff are polite, cordial, and totally care for the children. We moved to a new house that is about 10 minutes away, but we still have our daughter at AMA and recently started our son in the toddler room as well, although there are about 5 different pre-schools near our house (one just a minute away). The small teacher student ratio enables individualized attention, and we can see our children flourish. We are very happy with the care and instruction provided by the school sta...
