  • The AMS Early and Upper Elementary Experience ~ Virtual Events on January 20th & 27th

    We are pleased to invite you to two virtual events intended to give you an in-depth understanding of the Early and Upper Elementary programs at Austin Montessori School. During these meetings, you will have the opportunity to hear from the guides in each program and watch them give presentations with the Elementary didactic materials. 

    Despite the limitations of a virtual event, the Elementary faculty look forward to meeting you for a deeper experiential dive into the Elementary curriculum and practice. Prior to registration, we ask that you watch the recording of the presentation What is Montessori for the Elementary Child? and submit any questions you may have.

    After this virtual event, there will be the opportunity to sign up for in-person tours of the Early and Upper Elementary communities.  If you have any questions, please contact Sveta Pais, Director of Enrollment Management, or Amber Miller, Director of Admissions.

  • Invitation to Re-Enroll for the 2022-23 School Year

    Dear Austin Montessori School families,

    Today begins our re-enrollment period for current AMS families for the next school year. We are pleased to invite you to re-enroll your child at Austin Montessori School for the 2022-2023 school year. 

    During the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, Austin Montessori School has continued to strive to fulfill our mission of preparing in-person environments for toddlers, children, and adolescents that support the development of the whole human being. This is an education not merely focused on academic achievement but directed at enabling students to grow to their full potential and become active global citizens. Our heartfelt desire is that your family remains a part of our school community.  

    Your re-enrollment contract is now available in your myAMS portalTo suitably plan for the 2022-2023 school year, we must receive your completed re-enrollment contract by Monday, February 7, through myAMS. 

    We are limited in the number of openings available for new applicants in many of our communities. After the re-enrollment contract deadline, available spaces at each level are offered to qualified applicants in the waiting pool. If an enrolled family is not prepared to sign their child's re-enrollment contract by the due date of February 7, the contract expires. Extensions to this date are not available. If a currently enrolled family decides they would like to re-enroll their child after the contract has expired, the family must contact the Admissions Office. A re-enrolling child will receive priority admission if a space remains available. If you have specific questions regarding your child's contract, please get in touch with Sveta Pais.

    By signing this contract, the parent accepts the policies and guidelines outlined in the AMS Parent Community Handbook and Partnership Agreement and the AMS Operating Plan. We ask that you review these documents thoroughly prior to signing your child's re-enrollment contract. Please submit the completed contract in myAMS and the $300 registration fee due for each application submitted (maximum $600 per family). A copy of the completed contract will remain in your myAMS portal in the "Files and Forms" section. 
      
    Thank you for making Austin Montessori School your home. We are committed to providing the best possible developmental environment for your children and adolescents. 

    Sincerely,

    Grae Baker
    Head of School

    Sveta Pais
    Director of Enrollment Management
