The Montessori program at Winn Elementary School is the first Montessori in Austin ISD. The Montessori program consists of mixed age groups and is hands-on, letting every child learn at their own pace.
The Montessori program at Winn Elementary is free for students in K-2nd grade if you are in the district or an approved transfer. Winn currently accepts transfers from students who don’t live in their school zone, so students living in Whisper Valley would need to first apply to transfer to AISD.
