I am currently a father of 5 boys and a certificated History teacher for 6th-12th grade in Spokane Washington. My Son Donovan attended Arbor Creek Montessori in 2001 at 7yrs of age. He returned to the Pacific Northwest and won many awards in elementary school and later graduated with a 3.8 GPA from Coeur d'Alene Charter Academy one of the 100 best schools in The United States. I attribute his success with the straightforward Hand's-on approach emphasized at Arbor Creek. If you live within the Dallas area, I highly recommend this school for your child's early learning, they are definitely worth the drive!
