The History of MCHS

History of MCHS

The genesis of Montessori Children’s House and School occurred in the spring of 1970 when a group of parents met to discuss establishing a Montessori school for their children. As a result of that meeting, a new school was born.

The first classes were held in a residence on Blair Road in Dallas. The next few years were a period of rapid growth creating the need for a larger facility. The new property, next to the Greenbelt area on Abrams Road, seemed perfect, and on that site a new spacious building was constructed. In the fall of 1973, the first classes were held at the new facility, which is the site of the present school.

As decades passed, it became apparent that a significant building upgrade would be necessary to insure the future of the school. It was time that the school had a building that reflected the quality of the educational program that it housed. A capital campaign program ensued, and the Board of Directors, parents, alumni, and staff worked together to make possible the beautiful facility that the school now enjoys.

There is a feeling of permanence and a broadly experienced sense of involvement at Montessori Children’s House and School, along with gratitude to those few original parents whose vision and dreams have come to full realization.
