We are the only full member school of the American Montessori Society in Plano, Texas.  We have two Montessori certified teachers in each of our primary classrooms and our toddler teachers are trained and certified in infant/toddler Montessori.
Our low student-to-teacher ratios coupled with caring and long tenured instructors allows us to focus on the individual while fostering an environment that helps children develop their full potential.
Our classes consist of multi-aged, heterogeneous students exposed to a diverse set of materials, activities, and experiences which are designed to foster physical, intellectual, creative, and social independence.
Our classroom atmosphere encourages social interaction for cooperative learning, peer teaching, emotional development, and respect for the individual.
As a 501(3)(c) non-profit entity you'll find our earnings are reinvested back into the school for the benefit of our children.

School Reviews

  • Recommended September 07, 2013 - My daughter has been a student at MNBA for 18 months and my son just started this semester. We LOVE this school! My children had not been in any type of daycare before we enrolled them so we were very particular and researched many schools in the area and we are so happy with our choice. The teachers and administration are wonderful and they really care about the kids. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended June 12, 2013 - The administration and the faculty are top notch! My son absolutely LOVED attending MNBA and THRIVED. As a 1st grader, his reading and math skills are above the 4th grade level. I HIGHLY recommend MNBA. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 30, 2013 - I have had two children go through this wonderful school and I can''t say enough great things about the educators and environment provided them here. I love that''s it''s a non-profit school, and the parents concerns are really heard. My youngest in particular has really blossomed as he has become a "mentor" to some of the younger children, which is just one of the fantastic attributes of a true Montessory education. M:NBA is a great school, filled with great people who will love your children and help them be the best version of themselves! - Posted by Parent
