Why Parkside?

Montessori from the Heart. That’s Parkside.

Perhaps you’ve seen the articles in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and the Harvard Business Review, pointing out that many of our most successful business leaders and innovators — including the founders of Google and Amazon — were all students in Montessori schools. What’s more, these leaders credit their Montessori education as a major factor behind their success.

Maybe by now, you’ve decided that the brilliant educational methods of Dr. Maria Montessori would also benefit your child. So among the Montessori schools in Austin, why choose Parkside?


Of all things, love is the most potent.
–Maria Montessori

In 1991, Parkside founders Joe and Claire Bruno answered a calling to create a school where each child receives not only the highest quality Montessori education, but other life-changing gifts:

We call our approach “Montessori from the heart,” and we believe our unique combination of offerings makes Parkside a very special school.

“Having Johnathan attend Parkside is the best decision we ever made! He has really grown as a person thanks to the guidance, friendships, and learning he has received. ”
