General School Mission

"The mission of Countryside Montessori is to assist the students and parents in making the transition to the school environment successful and to provide a prepared, nurturing environment that allows each child to become independent and self-disciplined. In this environment, children learn to respect others and the world around them, and develop a life-long love of learning.

Countryside Montessori was created in the summer of 2001 by Cassidy Fuess with the help of many other parents and educators to provide a unique choice in education especially for the families of the Denton area. All children benefit from early education and respectful care. It is the goal of Countryside Montessori to make this an attainable, affordable goal for all children.
