Alcuin School United States
Alcuin School, one of the largest accredited Montessori schools in the U.S., provides an ideal learning environment and International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme that guides and nurtures the full development of the child from 18 months through 8th grade. Alcuin School will open an Upper School in the fall of 2014, beginning with a 9th grade class. Each year thereafter, a grade will be added, culminating in the first graduating class in May 2018. Founded in 1964 by Episcopal priest Albert A. Taliaferro, the Montessori School of Dallas occupied part of a two-story house in Highland Park with 68 students between the ages of two and five. At the end of that first year, Alcuin School purchased two acres far across town, where they were located for almost twenty years. As the school continued to grow, its academic development paralleled its physical evolution.
