Another Montessori school that you may be interested is in the Lake Highlands area, St. James Episcopal. It is a Montessori school that has a toddler program - primary Age 6 (kindergarten.)

hi: I would like to know what you decided after this: for the 6-9 year old montessori program that you found that you liked between these schools and why. Our reasons are the EXACT same ones as yours. Basically I could have written your post but a few years later

St. Alcuin is quite well loved, never heard any complaints. American Montessori is gaining popularity as well, specially among affluent Collin County crowd which aims for elite privates as next step.

For 6-9 year olds (or "Lower Elementary", grades 1-3) we know families who have gone to both Alcuin and White Rock. Part of the issue as always is location and cost.

I don't know anyone at Westwood, but it's a young school and has been changing a lot (new facilities, etc) so you will definitely want to get up to date information there. White Rock and Alcuin (they dropped the "St." a while back) are both good schools.

What are you looking for specifically in a school and have you visited all of them?

We are going to look at them this next month. Location seems particularly difficult for White Rock from the map. Say our kids got in there, what neighborhoods would you consider if jobs were at the VA and uptown. Safety is a priority. Land not so much.

I'll put in a good word for White Rock -- we know two families who have kids there and like it.

About location, I would suggest that White Rock is not so bad, if you are going to the VA and Uptown. For neighborhoods, obviously it depends on price, but 75218 ZIP code has a lot of great options.

75218 seems like a haul for the VA, other than Forest Hills area across from Arboretum. My first thought was the part of Lakewood between Gaston and Tokalon Park.

I know 3 families trying to leave Alcuin bc they feel like they are not responsive enough. One is a teacher and feels like they're not preparing the kids well enough.

I don't know what that means or what they think they're going to get out of another school.

They all strike me as hypercritical people in general, but I thought I'd give you the complaint I heard.
