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.

“At Parkside, the respectful way teachers treat and talk to the kids not only shapes their expectations for other relationships in their lives, it also sets them up for a positive experience of learning. There’s a balance of understanding and support, and the benefit of being known by caring, responsive people. We may live in a big city, but Parkside creates a loving, small town feel for every member of the community.
