Wow, after reading previous reviews I am baffled by what some parents have written about Frisco Montessori Academy. I, a mother of two currently enrolled students, have a very different opinion and know that FMA is a wonderful school.
Our family has experienced a wonderful outcome with Frisco Montessori Academy. My daughter has attended FMA since she was 2 years old. She has always had great teachers, who are Montessori accredited, working with her at her own academic pace. By age 3 she was reading and articulating the Pledge of Allegiance. She currently is enrolled in their elementary program, which is, by far, superior to any other elementary program within a 30 mile radius. She currently is proficient in basic math skills (+,-,x,/), fractions, chapter books, geography, science and much much more. She is very driven, outgoing and positive. This is what six years of great Montessori education have instilled in my daughter.
My son, who is currently 4 (as of two days ago), also commenced FMA when he was 2 yrs. old. He requires more attention and motivation. All of his teachers have been consistently issuing lots of love and patience while academically motivating and inspiring him to complete his daily works. His teachers aided us with his potty training and verbal skills. By the time he finished this past semester in May, he was reading small, one-syllable words, writing and understanding quantities, and communicating more fluently. He has developed an outgoing nature, he is respectful and very confident.
My husband and I would love to keep our children enrolled in FMA until fifth grade, if our plans allow. We are very impressed and feel pleased with what we have payed for. I noticed that high tuition costs were an issue that arose in previous comments. However, I am a firm believer, in that, you get what you pay for. And that is why I have two wonderful, fun, outgoing and energetic kids.
Thank you to the wonderful staff and faculty at Frisco Montessori Academy for loving, guiding and, above all, teaching my babies.

We have had a wonderful experience with FMA. My daughter attended for three years in Ms. Sorensen's class and my son is in her class now.

My daughter, a very strong-willed, independent, determined little girl, was taught firmly but lovingly how to focus her strengths to excel in her work and as a leader in the classroom. Now in public school, my daughter is not afraid to stand up for herself and/or others and is above her grade level in reading, writing and math. This is all thanks to Ms. Sorensen and her assistant for their dedication to her work and personal skills.

My son is now in Ms. Sorensen's class per my request and at four he is already reading, writing and completing math problems. A mischievous, fun-loving boy, my son is welcomed to be his self while still being expected to perform in the classroom with respect for his teachers and peers- what a valuable lesson for life!

I would highly recommend FMA if you are looking for a school that will help your child grow not only academically but also socially; if you are looking for a school where your child learns to be proud of self while respecting their community of peers; if you are looking for a school where rules and discipline are instilled with a fun and loving attitude- again, life lessons taught early on!

Thank you Ms. Sorensen and FMA for playing such an important part of my children's lives!

Frisco Montessori Academy is certainly one of the best Montessori schools around Frisco.
I have been affiliated with the school since 2007 and have been nothing but delighted with the school of my choice.
My daughter started here 5 years ago, and is now an elementary student. The elementary program at the school is just outstanding!
My son has been here for the past two years, and I just cannot say enough good things about the school and the teachers here.
My son is in Ms. Sorensen's class and within the first year of being with her, he has not only made great advances academically, but has also matured an individual. The students in a Montessori setting are expected to finish a task at hand before moving on to the next, this in turn helps build their concentration and sense of accomplishment. I have seen how this has helped my son become an advanced learner, and not to mention the sense of pride he feels after finishing his works! For all of this to happen, Ms. Sorensen and her assistant have been very patient with my son. They have both worked with him in a very respectful and nurturing manner. We all know, discipline in a classroom is pertinent for any learning to take place. My son took his time, but now has learned the rules of the classroom and the school. He absolutely adores his two teachers and can talk about them till the cows come home! And I, as a parent, cannot thank the teachers enough for their hard-work and patience.
I would highly recommend this school and its teachers to anyone in a heart beat!

My children have attended FMA since 2006 and I can not say enough good things about each of their experiences there. Not only are they AMS and IMS certified, the owners are previous teachers themselves. This is one of the main factors that go into making this school as great as it is. I have seen, first hand, where each of the owners have gone out of their way to help another child or family.

One of my children is a former student of Mrs. Sorenson's. He was by no means a model child and had his own behavioral issues. This being the case he still flourished in her classroom and continues to benefit from the loving care and education he received from both her and her assistant.

My other 2 children have also had wonderful experiences with their teachers. My youngest is currently with Mrs. Kessel and I am amazed every day with what she has learned. My oldest, who is now in upper elementary, continues to benefit from his experiences there.

FMA has a very strict policy that parents need to make an appointment to meet with the teacher. I can understand and appreciate this as it is in place for the benefit of the children. The teacher can then focus on THEM during THEIR Montessori time. I have never had an issue setting up a meeting with any of my children's teachers. A simple phone call is usually returned the same day.

Prior to attending FMA I extensively researched many of the other Montesorri schools in the area. Many of them are certified as well, however their actual application leaves a lot to be desired. Unfortunately what is claimed by other schools is not always followed through in their practices. This often results in high student & employee turnover. This is NOT the case at FMA many of their teachers & staff have been with them since they opened in 1998.

I STRONGLY disagree that Frisco Montessori Academy is not a true Montessori school! My children have been part of FMA??s ??family? of students for the past 5 years. My daughter, who is now in FMA??s elementary, was in Ms. Sorensen??s class for 3 years. My daughter, and now my son who is in Ms. Sorensen??s class for his first year, have both thrived academically and socially due to the structured, yet loving environment she provides. She is extremely encouraging, patient, and caring. I also feel that there is no other Montessori school around that has such involved owners along with its teachers. FMA??s four owners are at the school daily and truly know each child enrolled. They are constantly involved with their school, and you always see them helping in any way possible day in and day out. That is pretty hard to find these days; a private school where its owners are truly in it for the benefit of their students! I wouldn??t trade the experiences and growth my children have had at FMA for anything in the world. Frisco Montessori Academy is the BEST!

This is a school where the directors only care for money and the teachers only care for when they can finish their day without any concern on the students' real interests and learning. They put 25 students in one class!!

My girl was in the class with the lead teacher Ms Sorensen who claim to have many years of experience and good reputation in the school. Turn out she herself does not even know how to hold the pencil right and teach my daughter the wrong way of holding the pencil. She does not want you to ask any question. If you ever talks to her, she will keep reminding you she finish school at 3pm and will not talk to anyone after that. She refuses to give out any email or contact information as she never want any parent or student to contact her.

This school does NOT use the real montessori method. Ms Sorensen herself focus a lot on academy and if your kid does not finish her work, she will NOT be allowed to pick any other work she likes, but stuck with the work she does not want to work on. If she never finish her work today, they will give her the same work the next day, so as to FORCE her to do what they want her to do. My girl ended up never has chance to work on practical life or sensorial which she is most interested in. She once asked the teacher if she can do practical life work before she writes but was refused by the teacher!!

Ms Sorensen highly DISCOURAGE any parent to work with their kids at home. She keeps asking the parents NOT to work with the kids to avoid they do so much work that they dont want to work in school. Even my girl only goes half day school, she has a whole afternoon every day that the teacher keeps asking me NOT to do anything with her (except play).

Overall, this is a terrible school and does NOT deserve the high tuition. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone. It's more like they think they (both the school and Ms Sorensen) are "reputable" and they can do whatever they want without considering the real interests of the students. Shame on them!!

If you're looking for a wonderful Montessori school or private school, this is the one. The teachers are certified AMS and IMS. The owners and teachers are very kind and loving towards all the children. This is a year round school which works for my busy schedule. Both my children attend this school and they abosolutely enjoy it which makes me very happy. I am astounded by the level of education they are receiving. The tuition is about the same as other private schools in the area. I highly recommend this school.

Unless your child is perfectly behaved do not even think of sending your child to FMA. Both the teachers and the Administrators are unqualified to deal with any sort of behavior issues no matter how small. Children are removed from the class, sent to the "office" where the Directors make your child feel bad and actually call you at work to have you speak to your child on the phone. Look around for another school that doesn't require perfectionism from small children.

My daughter attends FMA and I love it. I plan to keep her there through 6th grade. It is a very caring environment. My daughter is very sensitive and has never once complainted. She is learning at her own pace and each week brings a folder home full of compliments and never anything negative. If she demonstrates a weakness, they work on it and grow the childs self confidence at the same time. I can get "free" public school now and hope she makes it through high school or I can pay for a solid education now and get "free" college later with scholarships. I have 4 kids - one in college and I know a great school when I see one.

Let me begin by saying that most of the teachers and the front office people are so loving, kind and truly seem to love what they do. However, the same cannot be said about the Director and all FOUR co-Owners of the school. It is obvious that these ladies are more concerned about their money than staff.

The PTO is barely functioning but I think that is due to parents who don't care to get involved and rely on the Teachers to come up with fund raising ideas.

Would I send my child there? In a heart beat because I know 95% of the staff is loving, hardworking, responsible and qualified. It's just the Administrative Staff I have a hard time with.

My son was at Frisco Montessori Academy for a year and up til today I still regret sending him there and the money is definitely not worth it. If you are thinking about sending your child there, be careful on the non-refund policy they have. They still have $800 of mine.

I currently have a preschooler attending her 2nd year at FMA, and a 2nd grader who attended in preschool 3 years ago.
Let me preface this review by saying I was a "Montessori Kid" until 5th grade, so I know that this type of education is a fabulous way of learning. I guess it is a rule in Montessori that all teachers must be very quiet and stoic-looking, because that is how I remember school, and that is how FMA seemed to me the 1st time I observed! However, very much like my own school experiences, my children have had the most loving, caring teachers of which I could ever dream!
As a matter of fact, the other day I was telling my daughter's teacher that she would be out of town for a couple of days to visit her grandparents (who she absolutely LOVES), and my daughter started crying. When I asked her what was wrong, she told me she didn't want to go to see them because she didn't want to miss school. Now if that is not reassuring, I don't know what is!
My children feel safe and secure in this environment. There is a lot of structure, which is very good for children, especially in this day and age! It allows them to feel safe that there will be predictability in their lives. At the same time, they learn at their own pace. My daughter is just learning to associate her sounds with her letters, while other children in her class are starting to read. My daughter never feels pressure that others are "smarter than her". She is so happy with her accomplishments, and her teachers are always the first to point them out.
I also love that my daughter gets in touch with the environment through garden class. She often gets to eat fresh veggies that she helped plant and grow! That is so neat for a suburban kid! She also learns Spanish and has music and pe classes every week. It is a very well-rounded program.
In addition to the teachers and academics, the PTO is out of this world. The parents are very involved and can always be seen walking the halls at all times of the school day doing volunteer work.
Is it expensive? YES!! But, in my opinion it is worth it!

PROS: Loving teachers, great enrichment activities, awesome PTO
CONS: Pricey

I liked the tour of the school but beware of the costs and one month tuition worth of security deposit and other costs that are non-refundable. The school does not have an open door policy. They show you the classrooms up front but your child may be placed in a class you did not get to observe. So one must ask which class has a placement available and why ...at least observe the class through the window since they don't allow the in-class-observation. The teachers do not seem very friendly although the front staff are helpful and kind. The several teachers I met seem very stern and not very happy.

Montessori is a new concept to me, but I found this place wonderful. The teachers are loving and supportive, and the children all look very happy.

My only complaint is that when I call in, the woman who answered the phone barely spoke english. She could not answer my questions, and had to ask me to come in and speak to another employee.

For all of this to happen, Ms. Sorensen and her assistant have been very patient with my son. They have both worked with him in a very respectful and nurturing manner. We all know, discipline in a classroom is pertinent for any learning to take place. My son took his time, but now has learned the rules of the classroom and the school. He absolutely adores his two teachers and can talk about them till the cows come home! And I, as a parent, cannot thank the teachers enough for their hard-work and patience. \nNeedless to say, I strongly disagree with the previous comment. I would highly recommend this school and its teachers to anyone in a heart beat!

This is a school where the directors only care for money and the teachers only care for when they can finish their day without any concern on the students' real interests and learning. They are NOT real montessori school. They also put 25 students in one class!!\n\nMy girl was in the class with the lead teacher Ms Sorensen who claim to have many years of experience and good reputation in the school. Turn out she herself does not even know how to hold the pencil right and teach my daughter the wrong way of holding the pencil. She does not want you to ask any question. If you ever talks to her, she will keep reminding you she finish school at 3pm and will not talk to anyone after that. She refuses to give out any email or contact information as she never want any parent or student to contact her.\n\n This school does NOT use the real montessori method. Ms Sorensen herself focus a lot on academy and if your kid does not finish her work, she will NOT be allowed to pick any other work she likes, but stuck with the work she does not want to work on. If she never finish her work today, they will give her the same work the next day, so as to FORCE her to do what they want her to do. My girl ended up never has chance to work on practical life or sensorial which she is most interested in. She once asked the teacher if she can do practical life work before she writes but was refused by the teacher!! \n\nMs Sorensen highly DISCOURAGE any parent to work with their kids at home. She keeps asking the parents NOT to work with the kids to avoid they do so much work that they dont want to work in school. Even my girl only goes half day school, she has a whole afternoon every day that the teacher keeps asking me NOT to do anything with her (except play).\n\nOverall, this is a terrible school and does NOT deserve the high tuition. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone. It's more like they think they (both the school and Ms Sorensen) are ""reputable"" and they can do whatever they want without considering the real interests of the students. Shame on them!!

My son attended briefly; he was in the primary program despite being bored with push-pin work and being ready to be challenged academically. He began getting into trouble and the inexperienced, yet sweet, teacher he had began to complain about him. The administrators all made small attempts to help, but in the end sided completely with the inexperienced teacher and refused to move him to a different class/level. We transferred him to Starwood Montessori where he went into the Elementary curriculum and blossomed immediately. Gone were the behavior issues. He then went into FISD where he went straight into the GT program and has gotten straight A's ever since. I fault this school for the lack of ability to better manage a gifted child's needs.
