Depending on where you are, there is also a Montessori near Lindsley Park. It takes low income as a priority, then inside their attendance zone off Grand Ave.
There are many good elementary schools in the area. I am partial to Montessori since advanced kids can go ahead of the classroom at their own pace (mine's an early reader- I am afraid he would get bored in any classroom that is doing letters worksheets).
Howdy again MacBeth and Pepper! These folks are a great asset to the board as far as early education info.
If you think your child does well with advanced concepts and doesn't need letter and number drills, I liked The Science School for a preschool.
I am looking into Stone for my son right now, even though he is zoned for Lakewood Elementary. Lakewood is touted as one of the best schools, but when I visited, they were doing letter worksheets en masse, just like any other school. I am hoping Montessori will at least teach him new things about land forms and plant life.

Both of my kids went to the Science School for preschool and I loved it...they loved it.

Good call, littlewmn, on on Lindsley Community School. There is also East Dallas Community School - both Montessori. Never heard a bad thing about them. In East Dallas, we really have some great options.

Friends of mine have kids at The Learning Tree - and they love it. It sounds like a very enriching program. The Children's Center is also good.

When it came down to it, I chose Science School because the cost was a little less and they stayed a bit (not much) longer...us moms need all the time we can get!!!

My oldest went to Stone for K-3 starting 10 yrs ago. It was good in the beginning and I thought he'd be there until 8th grade and I wouldn't have to think about school again, but then we got a teacher that was very disagreeable. She's long gone. In the end, I found that Stone was unwilling to work with us and move my son to another class. The warning signs were there as he was the 5th kid to leave the class before Thanksgiving.
