As a stream of so-called Montessori schools pop-up steadily throughout the Dallas, Texas metroplex area, conscientious parents are looking for information on the best available choice as an investment in their child’s future. The Castle Montessori family of schools stands out far above the rest, having set an unparalleled standard of early childhood education. Unlike the crop of new “schools”, Castle Montessori Schools have a proven history of preparing today’s child for a lifetime of success and individualized achievement in an ever-competitive global economy.
Many former Castle Montessori students have gained admission into some of the most historically elite private schools in Dallas, Texas including The Greenhill School, Parish School, Prince of Peace School, Hockaday and St. Marks. Acceptance into private schools of such caliber is contingent upon several factors, possibly with the most challenging being able to score well during standardized testing. “I am quite familiar with standardized testing, and I must say, it makes me very proud of the groundwork which has been done in our schools. Our Montessori environment prepares students to score remarkably well on these standardized entrance exams and it is positive proof that the efforts of our educators and parent investments do produce an outstanding tangible result in our graduates who gain admittance to these historically elite schools to further their education,” co-founder Vikas Patel said.
Public school teachers and administrators in the highly-ranked local school districts have also made numerous comments regarding the extreme level of preparedness, achievement and citizenship in former Castle Montessori students since the schools’ opening.
In addition, parents have also been quick to recognize the contribution of Castle Montessori Schools in their child’s academic life and social development. “Nothing beats the learning environment at Castle Montessori School. The teachers have loved and guided my children as though they were their own. My sons received one-on-one attention and were continuously challenged when they mastered a new skill.” Pediatrician Dr. Kalpana Kelkar, of Flower Mound, said.
The task of developing and operating schools where young children actively engage in the learning process and build skills that will take them into top colleges and beyond is a well-conceived and thoroughly planned effort by school founders Varsha and Vikas Patel, of Plano, TX. The couple has built and operates four schools to-date in the Dallas metroplex including Carrollton, Flower Mound, McKinney and Frisco. A fifth school, located in Plano will open in August 2012.
Each school campus was custom-built featuring state-of-the-art computer labs, indoor gymnasiums, outdoor playgrounds with upgraded play structures, music rooms with a baby grand piano and closed-circuit monitoring security system. The lifework of the famous Italian educator, Dr. Maria Montessori, is the basis of the school’s academic curriculum.
“Because we have lived the experience of looking for good schools, we’ve made certain to offer families more than a just a classical Montessori curriculum. I want parents to know we are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, progressively educational environment for their children, one that prepares them for a very bright future regardless of their chosen path,” Varsha Patel added.
Fall enrollment has begun at each school campus and positions are available on a first-come basis. For more information and to schedule a visit to one of their campuses, please visit www.CastleMontessori.com or contact one of their campus locations directly:
