About Montessori 


Rodriguez Montessori Elementary School will open with students ages 3-6, expanding to fifth grade in subsequent years.

Rodriguez joins Steele Montessori Academy as one of only two public Montessori schools in the city – both within SAISD.

The Montessori approach offers student-centered learning and a strong emphasis on creating independent individuals who show empathy and compassion. 

In Montessori classrooms, children make creative choices in their learning, while the teacher offers age-appropriate activities at each student’s pace to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore the world and to develop their maximum potential through interactive learning and self-directed activities.

Based on research, the school’s dual language pathway is expected to help increase students’ creativity and problem-solving, boost their mental ability, and promote higher performance on standardized tests. In addition to the cognitive benefits, a dual language education helps students cultivate a deeper understanding of not only their own cultures but the cultures of others as well.
