Eduardo Mata Elementary School is a Dallas ISD transformation school, part of the district’s choice school initiative. Our school is one of three public Montessori schools in Dallas ISD, and is unique in that it is the only choice school among the three. For admission purposes, this means:
- We will offer the same types of instructional approaches and themes as magnet schools, but will not have any academic entry requirements.
- We will be open to all students across the district, regardless of academic ability. However, enrollment preference will be given to students living in the immediate area.
- We will provide transportation within certain parameters.
Mata is currently a pre-K through fifth-grade campus with Primary, Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary classrooms structured under the Montessori model. We will add the 6th grade for the 2018-19 school year. All spots, both traditional and dual language, are filled for the 2017-18 school year, and any spots that open up will be filled with families on the wait list kept by the DISD Office of Transformation and Innovation.
