Pebblecreek Montessori is an amazing school. First off, it is a true Montessori, and that is a rare find in Dallas, where Montessori is just a buzz word that schools are putting on their glorified day cares. The next thing you should know is that the quality of the class leads is outstanding. All of the teachers at the school are caring, patient, respectful, and passionate about their jobs. They have literally taught me to be a better parent. My daughter has been there for three years and has reading, communication, and math skills beyond her age level. But more important than that, she is able to think through and solve problems. Where we have been truly blown away is in her character development. At Pebblecreek she has learned to be disciplined without losing individuality, initiative, or confidence. I have made and will continue to make unreserved recommendations to my friends and family for Pebblecreek.

The owner would do anything to trick you and get/keep your money. She is not an honest person, only cares about money. I'm very disappointed with my experiences with Pebble creek.

PCM is an incredible school and I am so happy that I found it for my son. It is one of the very few accredited Montessori schools in the area (not all schools are truly Montessori). My son's in the Spanish immersion class, which I wasn't really able to find anywhere else. The teachers are extremely dedicated and passionate. They take the time to get to know each and every child and the lines of communication are open in this school from the teachers, to the administration, to the front desk staff. They offer lots of after school activities - basketball, soccer, yoga etc. My son LOVES going to school here and often cries when I go to pick him up. I have read some negative reviews about PCM on how they 'badger' parents to donate money, time and effort to a lot of school events - golf tournaments, charity events etc. I appreciate the time and effort that the school puts in to get the entire parent community involved in the school. my son went to another Montessori school a year previous to joining PCM and I am blown away by the dedication and commitment that PCM shows to its students and parents. you can't go wrong in choosing this school for your child.

Pebblecreek is a school committed to staying true to the vision of Montessori. We are a family that has been in the Montessori environment for the last 4 years and I have to say that Pebblecreek is top notch in its programming, its staff, and its vision for Montessori. The "specials" like art and music fall in such a way that the Montessori work cycle is respected which was important to us. All of our children (we have one in toddler, primary, and lower elementary) are allowed to have uninterrupted time to work. The staff is incredibly supportive and have helped my children transition to the new school (especially my youngest). The owner is accessible and very candid. Any concerns I have brought to her were addressed promptly and appropriately. They also have many parent ed events and social events for the kids. I cannot say enough about this school. We hope to be here for many years to come!

Pebblecreek brings out the confidence and independence in our children we d hoped it would. Our kindergarten daughter happily walks our toddler daughter to her classroom every day. Both of our daughters are happy at this school. The teachers are excellent and willing to talk with parents any time, even after hours. The students are welcoming and respectful. Our older daughter considers every classmate a friend for the first time in 5 schools she s attended. She loves her teachers, the materials and choosing her work. The head teacher is a native Spanish speaker, so the students experience Spanish immersion. My daughter s Spanish pronunciation is superb. She also has the opportunity interact with 1st-3rd graders daily. It has brought a confidence and maturity in her. In the classroom she engaged in every subject. She is proud to show us her work and explain what she s accomplished. Our toddler has become independent and self-sufficient and her vocabulary has grown immensely. The new head teacher is firm, patient, encouraging and an expert potty trainer. The assistant teacher is wonderful with the kids our daughter considers her a best friend and talks about her nonstop.

I absolutely love Pebblecreek Montessori. If you are looking for a school that really believes in the Montessori philosophy, this is one of the few excellent options. While a lot of schools call themselves Montessori, this one lives and breathes it. There are a lot of Montessori mills in the DFW area and only a handful really practice true Montessori philosophy as Maria Montessori designed. Pebblecreek is one of the few schools that stays true to the mission. Coming to PCM was one of the best decisions for our family. I feel like they are really preparing children to be citizens of the world and good stewards to their communities. It is exactly what I was looking for in a school and I'm glad I found it. Highly recommend.

his school is terrific. We are incredibly picky about Montessori programs and I toured/researched over 8 schools before coming across Pebblecreek. This one passed all of our tests with flying colors. The staff is truly wonderful, very caring and excellent educators. We have 3 children attending there.
