At Starwood Academy of Frisco, we believe children cannot be taught to love learning — they must discover it on their own.
The magic of imagination, the spark of understanding, the excitement of exploration … these are all wonders that happen differently for each child; deeply personal experiences that must be nurtured so that every child has the opportunity to experience their joys.
This is what happens at Starwood every day!

Knowing that each family has varying demands on their time, we have virtual and in-person events available to learn more about Starwood.

Part of the application process includes getting a feel for who we are as a school and a community and attending a campus event.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Starwood Academy of Frisco is one of Frisco's only high-fidelity Montessori schools to offer families the opportunity to experience a complete Montessori journey from 18 months through the age of 15. Our programs include:
Toddler: 18 months-3 years old
Primary: 3-6 years old (Preschool, Kindergarten)
Lower Elementary: 6-9 years old (1st, 2nd, 3rd grade)
Upper Elementary: 9-12 years old (4th, 5th, 6th grade)
Middle School: 12-15 years old (7th, 8th grade)
In contrast to traditional education, which emphasizes small classes, Montessori schools value the lessons of community in larger, multi-age classrooms. The role of the teacher in a Montessori classroom is a guide and a mentor rather than an instructor. Larger environments encourage students to rely on themselves and their peers as resources.
Starting in our primary program (ages 3-6) and through elementary/middle school (ages 6-15), classrooms average 20 to 24 students with a 12:1 student-teacher ratio. Note that the same does not apply for toddler classrooms, where we keep the student-teacher ratio at 7:1.
We also have multiple extracurricular vendors that hold afternoon classes on our campus for your convenience. No more driving to various practices after school! These activities include sports, STEAM, drama, piano, gymnastics, dance and chess.
Because of the breadth of the program, dietary and health preferences are accommodated, allowing all students to participate. There are procedures in place to alert parents and students of potential allergens in advance.
Daily snacks, like fresh-cut fruit, cheese and crackers and homemade baked goods, are a part of the students’ school life. Students do not bring any food from home.
While independent and personally empowered, Starwood students share a strong work ethic, a love of learning, and sincere respect for humanity and the world in which we live. The Starwood Academy of Frisco graduate embraces diversity as a global citizen; thinks critically as a creative, collaborative leader; and lives with integrity as a self-aware, independent human being.
The core character qualities that Montessori helps to develop are also the same ones that have made the transition smooth for our students to attend either public or private school for high school education. Many students continue on to attend Frisco ISD, Legacy Christian Academy, the Alcuin School, or Greenhill.

The Green Family
"Starwood is special to us because of the diversity and inclusion. It always warms my heart to pull into the carpool lane and see children of all races and ethnicities sitting next to each other swinging their legs and chatting about the day."
"Starwood Schools has prepared me for academic success by not just blindly finding the answer, to truly ask and know how and why, to genuinely understand the concept so I can remember it for any circumstance that I need."
"All of my guides have made a lasting impression on me. All of them have been kind, patient and considerate with me. They have all taught me different things, and honestly, I am super lucky to have been taught by them."
The Patel Family
"Starwood Montessori has been a family affair for us. Since the beginning, our children have loved going to school! Their teachers, guides, administration and Ms. Hanks have always been a very caring group. It is very special when everyone on campus really knows your children, and by name at that!"
