Austin Montessori School provides an integrated, inclusive, highly personalized educational environment for children from infancy to 15 years of age. 
We strive to guide children along their authentic path of development so that they may remain attuned to their nature as they cultivate a reverence for the organic order of the universe. Our intention is for each child to become a whole and integrated human being who is both instrumental in their growth and sensitive to the needs of all people.

Founded in 1967 by Donna Pesoli (now Donna Bryant Goertz) and her family, Austin Montessori School is the oldest and largest Austin area school recognized by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).

Our school is dedicated to Dr. Maria Montessori's mission of world peace through human development.


An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to times in which they live.

    "Siblings Without Rivalry" Workshop

    Austin Montessori School is pleased to offer a six-part parenting workshop, "Siblings WithoutRivalry," led by Sveta Pais and Monica Pesoli. This workshop is based on the work of Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, authors of acclaimed books 'How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk,' and 'Siblings Without Rivalry.' During six sessions parents form a learning community to explore the following areas: 

    • Supporting siblings in expressing their feelings with equanimity when in disagreement.
    • Treating children based on need, rather than equity.
    • Avoiding placing siblings in roles so that each child comes to become his or her whole self.
    • Collaborating with siblings so that they can move toward resolving their conflicts.
     
    Please note: A pre-requisite for this workshop is "How To Talk So Kids Will Listen" OR "The Austin Montessori School Connected Family Workshop."
