Excellent school - I started sending my two children about one year back when I returned to work. I am very pleased with the progress my children have made in a year’s time. They are comfortable with their teachers and learning a lot. I was not familiar with "Montessori" when they joined, but the teachers and director (who I believe is the owner) did a great job of educating me. I can see the difference in my children, which is the most important thing to me. The school is bright and always clean, the food is cooked and provided in the school, and the staff is very friendly. I've made friends with other parents in the school through all of the extracurricular events they have going on. My children are clean and in great spirits when I pick them up at the end of the day. I have built a good relationship with the director and teachers who are always available when I need to speak with them. Overall, I am grateful I found this school for my kids, and I'm sure they will stay in Montessori for as long as they can.

Our Team

The quality of any Montessori Program begins with a team of adults who are trained in the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. At Alpha Montessori, the Director, Program Consultant and Lead Teaching staff, all hold Montessori certificates and are assisted by qualified support persons.

The Director, Rupali Abdulpurkar, an AMS (American Montessori Society) teacher, who has over twelve years of classroom teaching experience at the early childhood and elementary levels in Montessori schools in Plano, Dallas, and other international schools in Stockholm, Sweden. She also holds degrees in Homeopathic Medical Sciences and a B.S. in Business from Bombay University, India.

She believes that giving children a Montessori education is one of the best ways to make a positive contribution to society. Ms. Rupali believes that the schools are her personal legacy. That’s why it’s especially important to her to be accessible for conversation with students, parents, faculty, and staff. She brings with her a love for learning and teaching both from a mother’s perspective and a teacher’s whose focus is on lifetime learning.

The Program Director, Lynda Landreth, has accumulated over thirty years of Montessori parenting, teaching and directing in schools in the Dallas and Carrollton area. Her collaboration with Alpha Montessori is to guide the staff in providing true Montessori concepts and classroom organization. She holds a BFA degree in Fine Arts and C.M.E. in Montessori Primary education. In addition to her work as the Program Director, she presents seminars for parents and teachers on how to build character values in children. The Character for Kids seminars are currently being conducted at universities in Russia, Ukraine, and Lithuania, as well as the United States, with the goal of training future teachers to be models of character and to give them an understanding of the way children acquire these values: Honesty – Trustworthiness – Respect – Responsibility – Courage – Caring – Fairness – Hope. Qualities Taught In Montessori Schools Around The World

The Lead Teachers are chosen for their love for young children and their Montessori training in the specific ages of their students. In addition to their Montessori certification, our teachers are giving additional training in child development, communication and other aspects of teaching which further their effectiveness in the classroom. Our teachers work closely with their assistants, sometimes Montessori interns, to give them a sense of the way children learn. Their cooperation in the classroom is a model for the students in social interaction as well as leadership.

With this team, Alpha Montessori strives to provide a strong foundation for the next generation of leaders, thinkers and creators. With self confidence and a sense of purpose, students are prepared to enter the next level of education. We want Alpha Montessori to be a place where each child can reach their fullest potential.
