Letter From The Head of School

Welcome to Starwood Academy of Frisco!

My name is Anita Hanks, and I have had the privilege of being Head of School for the last 20 years. We are excited that you are considering our campuses for your child and invite you to learn more about the Starwood difference.  

Starwood Academy of Frisco offers an environment where children love to come to school and learn from and with others. Our high-fidelity Montessori program provides an academic environment promoting practical life skills as well as supporting social and emotional growth as we prepare compassionate leaders of tomorrow.

The classroom environments are designed for the children, emphasizing the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking and problem-solving.  Our committed and compassionate team of Montessori-trained guides supports the students in their holistic development:  academically, emotionally, socially, and physically. It is an honor to be leading a collaborative team of educators and staff committed to life-long learning and respectful relationships as they also continuously expand their knowledge base in service of the students they work with.

We are a diverse learning community where individuals are embraced and respected for their unique differences.  The school’s core values truly align with Montessori principles as established over 100 years by Dr. Maria Montessori yet are still very relevant today.

I invite you to explore the benefits of Montessori education at Starwood Academy of Frisco! Look over the website. Enjoy pictures of our learning community on our Facebook page. We would love to meet you for a virtual visit to tour our campuses and allow you to see how our vibrant community is a great fit for your family.
