ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH
DAV Montessori, a non-profit private Montessori and elementary school started in 2000, was a vision of the Arya Samaj Houston’s Management Committee, who felt the need for an elementary school to provide a quality Montessori education.
Our mission at D.A.V. Montessori and Elementary school is to provide academic excellence , spiritual growth, knowledge of Vedic values, Indian culture and Hindi language to all our students.
Find your course, and the road to your child’s success.
Our vision is for strong and resilient students where all have adequate access to the support structures required to succeed.
The preschool class at DAVM has students between the ages of 2.5 –5 yrs. Montessori materials in the classroom helps the child develop the necessaryconcentration, coordination and working habits needed for successfully performing at advanced levels in the language, grammar, math, geography, science, and social studies.
If we were able to harness mindfulness and meditation from an early age, what would the world look like? Here’s why we need to have our kids adopt a regular meditation practice.
KG & 1st Grade
At D.A.V. this is a unique class that combines Montessori based teaching along with text books. as per the Texas education standards. Everything that children have learned in previous years comes together in Kindergarten and First Grade.
I have found that yoga can help counter these pressures. When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease.
2nd – 5th Grade
The elementary program uses a set of high-quality academic standards knowns as Common Core to develop foundational skills across our English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Technology curriculum. This program empowers students.
Language connects us to the culture of a country. Culture is a way we behave with others. Research shows that Early language learning results in better pronunciation and have higher level of proficiency in communication. Hindi is the fourth most spoken first language in the world.

The elementary program uses a set of high-quality academic standards knowns as Common Core to develop foundational skills across our English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Technology curriculum. This program empowers students to:
- Develop strong reading comprehension and writing skills.

Interactive digital resources and S.T.E.A.M. skills are also woven into lessons, labs, and projects to prepare students for 21st century life. Your child won’t learn technology skills in isolation, but rather how to apply these skills to everyday tasks.
In addition to the academically rigorous curriculum, students support their cognitive and academic performance through learning a foreign language, Hindi. Students’ social and moral development is nurtured through Art, Yoga, and Physical Education.
The success of the elementary program is due to several factors. First, our highly qualified and talented teachers provide extra support and encouragement when needed, while fostering independence, teamwork and creativity in all students. This is possible due to the low student teacher ratio and small class sizes. Weekly tests are conducted along with unit tests across subjects to gauge mastery and modify scope and sequence of curriculum as needed. Hands-on class and take-home projects offer an opportunity for parental involvement while encouraging students’ creativity. Preparation and testing of the IOWA National standardized tests in Reading, Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies is conducted annually to measure students’ abilities.
