WITH THE WHOLE CHILD IN MIND
Enrolling my children in Frisco Montessori Academy was the best educational decision I've ever made. The children are continually challenged by FMA's teachers and their natural curiosity nurtured. When my daughter was a kindergartener at FMA, she was introduced to advanced first grade math concepts. Her teacher encouraged and supported her to explore interests to which she was naturally drawn and she has flourished. My son, now in middle school, attended FMA for 8 years and tested into advanced math and literature classes at his new school. FMA instilled in both of my kids a strong foundation and provided them with tools that they will use to succeed throughout their education career. My husband and I could not be happier. Lisa S.
Frisco Montessori Academy has been such a wonderful experience. My children love going to school each morning and are surrounded by wonderful teachers and friends. We believe in building a strong foundation early on for our children and are always amazed with the quality of education that they are receiving. The skills they are learning today at FMA will be a benefit to them throughout their lives. We look forward to watching our children continue to thrive in such an amazing environment!

Mark and I were just talking about how grateful we are that our son has been at FMA for so long. It has been a true blessing for him to be surrounded with amazing teachers like you, Ms. Doherty. One of the coolest things about the Montessori model is that the teachers have a multi-year impact on the kids and we have seen our son truly grow through those bonds. We know that you, Ms. Mullins, Ms. Kessel, Ms. Bendezu, Ms. Hayden and Ms. McDonald have all had a truly significant impact on our unique, caring, wonderful little (OK, big) boy and he is a stronger, more confident person because of your care and love. There is really no way for us to tell you how much that means to us. It is bittersweet to see him moving on at the end of this school year. We know he is ready but you all have made the school feel like family. Thank you. Jess W.
As the year pulls to a close, I wanted to take a moment to thank you, Ms. Rosen. You've been such an inspiring, supportive voice through the years and I wanted to share how wonderful it is to walk down the halls of the school and see happy children making wonderful memories every day. I also wanted to acknowledge what a wonderful, positive impact Ms. Cuellar has had on our son this past year. In these few short months, I've seen him go from saying school was "OK" to ABSOLUTELY loving every moment he spends here. Ms. Cuellar has played a huge role in motivating him both academically and in becoming a more social, involved child. She welcomes his opinions, teaches him to work for solutions, and truly makes him feel that his thoughts are valued, and his feelings respected. As parents, we only want to see our child happy and thriving. His personality has truly blossomed under Ms. Cuellar's care. I just wanted to share this praise for the wonderful job she's doing in molding young minds into confident, caring, independent and respectful people. To us, our son is a great example of Ms. Cuellar's love of teaching and dedication to her students. Aditi S.
It is hard to believe that 19 years passed by like a blink of an eye. So many moments, so many memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. You have seen our kids grow and you have taught them how to be good and successful students and well-rounded human beings. We will never forget your generosity in difficult times and your welcoming smiles that made us feel at home. FMA is an important part of our family and will always be in our hearts. We are infinitely grateful for what you have done for our family. We will always keep you in our prayers; it is not a goodbye, but the beginning of a life long relationship. We are sure that if they are able, their own children will someday be Frisco Montessori Academy students where they will also experience first hand where they have had some of the best times of our lives. We can just simply say: THANK YOU! Ivonne E.
I have had at least one child at Frisco Montessori Academy since 2004. I cannot say enough positive things about this school. The teachers are truly unique. They nurture, encourage, motivate and love the children. All children are different. They have different struggles, family situations and learning styles. I have found that the teachers get to know each child well enough to identify what they need in order to be successful. The attention the kids receive from all their teachers is directly related to how advanced they are compared to their peers at other schools. The administration is also top notch! They love these children! Every parent wants their children to receive an advanced education, be allowed to celebrate their own unique qualities and be surrounded by people who truly care about them. You will find all of that at FMA. We feel so lucky to have found this school so many years ago! Brandi C.
It amazes me how we came to be a part of Frisco Montessori Academy, especially when it wasn't even on the radar. We had our son enrolled in another Montessori school and after only a month, we knew it was not a good fit. Our son's lead teacher had actually taught at Frisco Montessori Academy and had switched to this school due to location. She explained about FMA and sang praises about a teacher who had first graders reading on 4th grade level. She also advised us to consider transferring our son to FMA, and after a tour, we were impressed. Unfortunately, there was a waiting list at the time, but because we were already in the midst of the fall semester, we asked that our son's name be placed on the list. We were notified only two months later that there were spots available and we could enroll our son for the spring semester. We were extremely excited! Our son was 3 years old when he started FMA. The next year, we enrolled our twin boys who are a year younger and the rest is history! All of our sons were reading withing 3 months! The teachers and owners have such a passion for what they do. They have always been approachable and address any issues/questions we've had over the years. It is an environment that respects individuality and has exceeded our expectations for education. The twins are now in lower elementary and our oldest is in upper elementary. We are constantly amazed at the curriculum and how early they are learning concepts that their parents learned at a MUCH later age. What a great foundation FMA is providing our sons that will allow them to be excellent students. So is this a great school? That is truly an understatement!!! Tammi B.
"What can I say?" Frisco Montessori Academy is one of the best decisions my husband and I made regarding our children's future. The Teachers and Staff are friendly and really take the time with their students and parents. My daughter is way above her grade level in reading and math. After coming from other schools, my children have excelled in their education, and I believe it is a huge reflection on how wonderful the school is. I am so thankful for the entire staff at FMA."
