5 star fantastic! We are a military family. I have 3 boys. All are special needs and of the very many elementary schools I have to say this by the far the best one we have been too.
Montair has extremely good leadership and teachers. The facilities are a bit out dated but the programs, integration of technology, personalized learning are absolute tops.
My daughter attended TK here and I wish this was our home school. The personal involvement from not only her teachers, but also the other school staff and parents have given her an amazing beginning. She loves school and learning, and I hope this continues - she has been given a wonderful base at Montair Elementary!
Montair is a very special school. I am proud to have a teaching position there. I have worked at other school sites previously, and have never seen anything that compares to it. Montair exudes balance, warmth, and inclusion. In addition to general education classes for K-5, we have various programs for children of diverse needs (TK, SDC, ATP). This instills a natural feeling of acceptance on campus among students and staff; a view that we are all unique and we honor and respect that about each other. The teachers play an integral part in nurturing this inclusion. The school also maintains programs like garden curriculum, art history/instruction, healthy eating education, and drama thanks to the parent donations and volunteers. This is unusual to find in elementary schools these days. It shows that Montair cherishes the idea of the whole child regardless of cost and test scores. Parents are down to earth, grounded individuals who most importantly want their children to be happy and engaged. Teachers deliver high quality academics while recognizing kids are kids, and nurturing them socially as well. As stated before, Montair is a special place. It is heartbreaking when individuals defame the school publically and anonymously, clearly omitting other sides or information, and doing so for personal reasons. The bottom line is Montair is not perfect. No school is. Not everyone can be happy. There will always be those few who find or encounter faults. Ultimately, Montair is truly special in that it provides an environment for kids where they feel safe, happy, and engaged. There is work that goes into that. I’m proud to be part of that work. Many other members of the community are proud as well.
