Dealey provides an exemplary Montessori education that empowers all students to become productive citizens in our global society.
Dealey was founded as a neighborhood school in 1953. Classes began that fall in temporary Army barracks while the building was constructed. In November of 1955 construction was complete and the building was dedicated to the former Dallas Morning News publisher George Bannerman Dealey.
In the late 1970s, DISD closed Dealey due to low enrollment, and the building was leased to the City of Dallas for use as a recreation center.
In 1992 DISD re-opened Dealey as the magnet Montessori campus that exists today.
Since then, parents have consistently chosen Dealey for its unique learning environment and robust community involvement.
According to the Maria Montessori Institute, Montessori schools promote hands on, self paced, collaborative, joyful learning. Children in Montessori follow their interests, wherever that passion leads; giving them strong academics, leadership, self discipline, responsibility, independence, initiative and a lifelong love of learning.
