What parents are saying

“When deciding what schools I wanted to send my children to I had so many questions and not enough answers. Experience SAISD was a great way for me, an out of district parent, to meet and connect with the different schools and learn about the programs they each have to offer. We attended with the expectation that we would learn more about SAISD and feel confident in the school of our choice when applying. We are now proud SAISD parents and could not be more confident in the schools our children attend!”
Elyssa V., SAISD Parent
“As parents who have seen our child grow in a Montessori environment from pre-k through our time at Steele Montessori, we are passionate about the Montessori method for education and we are always excited to share the message and the opportunity with families that may not be familiar with Montessori. In SAISD there is a unique opportunity for children to receive a Montessori education in public school and we love the opportunity at Experience SAISD to get the word out. The Montessori method uses the child’s own inherent desire to learn as the basis and driving force of the learning process and we strongly feel that this process has directly contributed to our children’s success and happiness at school.”
Mr. Dunne, SAISD Parent

“While being able to attend Experience SAISD, I was able to see different schools and curriculums to determine which school would be best for my son.”

Michelle T., SAISD Parent
“The public Montessori model has been an effective and exciting educational experience for my preschooler and first grader. As an out-of-district parent, I was eager to share my family’s wonderful experience with SAISD and Steele Montessori Academy. With all schools represented and a variety of student extracurriculars on display, Experience SAISD provides an excellent opportunity to engage and connect with current and prospective families in a setting that is truly immersive and informative. I look forward to participating each year!”
