East Dallas Community School's Full Profile



East Dallas Community School says

EDCS is a nonprofit, AMI-recognized Montessori school serving an ethnically diverse group of primarily low income families. We are family and community oriented, and we welcome and encourage parent involvement. For over 30 years we have been proving that all children, regardless of ethnicity or income level, can succeed when you start young and involve parents. EDCS is an AMI-recognized Montessori school. All teachers are AMI-trained and certified. We offer a parent education program for families with children from birth to age 3, a toddler community for children from 14 months to age 3, two primary classes for children ages 3 to 6, a lower elementary class for children ages 6 to 9, and before and after school care. In a neighborhood in which the public high school graduation rate is less than 50%, of children who attended EDCS through the third grade and who are now old enough to have graduated from high school, 94% have graduated from high school and 88% of these have gone on to college.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
