Welcome to Montessori School of Fort Worth

In 1968, Montessori Children’s House was established as Fort Worth’s first Montessori school by two teachers, Joy Sheffield and La Verne Davis.  The “Children’s House” grew to include the elementary years during the 1990s then added Middle School in 2013 so Montessori School currently more fully describes our campus. Montessori School has successfully served many Fort Worth families with alumni attendance growing each year.

Toddler Community

In the toddler community our intent is to provide an environment prepared exclusively for the characteristics of children between the ages of 18 through 36 months for discovery and learning. The purpose of the toddler community is to assist the toddler during this special period of growth and their first venture from home. The toddler teachers prepare the environment with age-appropriate activities that foster the natural desire of the toddler’s innate need for exploration and independence.

Primary Community

The prepared environment of the primary community encourages the child of 3 through 6 years of age to absorb information as a natural and joyful activity. The Montessori materials help to stimulate and develop fine discrimination in all senses. Age appropriate exercises assist the child in developing mastery of coordination and movement, learning about social relationships and self care skills. The prepared environment allows the child to develop independence.

Lower Elementary

The elementary class is a community of learners grouped into the lower elementary, ages six to nine, and the upper elementary, ages nine to twelve. Children in the elementary classroom are moving toward abstract reasoning, developing a moral sense, and have a passionate drive to learn about the natural and social world.

Upper Elementary

The schedule is designed with large blocks of uninterrupted time to facilitate the interdisciplinary connections of knowledge. The lower elementary classroom reflects the child’s work to order the world with reason. The upper elementary students are concerned with the workings of society that is supported with research projects and group readings of literature. In both levels the student works to master skills at their own pace in mathematics and language while studying science, history, and geography as a community of learners. This structure facilitates both independent study and group work in this cooperative program.

Middle School

The Middle School enables students to grow and make decisions as they work in a community of adolescent learners led by adults focused on this age of development. Research reveals that the ideal school environment for early adolescents provides a feeling of safety, a sense of community, and a close working relationship with caring adults. The Middle School provides such a place, where students learn about themselves, respond creatively to assignments in the curriculum, and blossom into responsible young adults.

“If you’re thinking of sending your loved one to a Montessori school then I recommend you do it. I made so many friends and had so many adventures there, it was truly the best childhood experience I could have had.”
