Monterey Heights is a great school. The sixth grade teaching team is excellent. They have a great rapport with the students and my son greatly enjoyed school because of these two outstanding teachers. They do a great job of motivating students to learn and strive to do their best.
I attended MH, now my 2 daughters go to this wonderful school. The teachers are awesome and the principal is great. There is no better elementary school around
and we WILL get over 800 on Cst test scores no matter how much you don't believe it Mrs. Cole
Monterey Heights has passionate teachers. They absolutely love what they do & it transmits through the students. Since enrolling my 4 children there, they improved so much they no longer needed esl classes and got approved to the Gate program. My kids never want to be absent. Now that speaks for itself!
I have grandchildren that attend this school and they really enjoy it!!! This is one of the best schools in the district...Go for the Gold!!!!
All 3 of my children attended Monterey Heights, now 2 of my grandkids attend there. The teachers are wonderful!
We love this school, all the teachers, and the administration. No matter what the issue, grade level, or ability, Monterey Heights is the only choice for our family.
Monterey Heights is representative of what every parent is looking for from a school. My brother, sisters and I all attended the school. The teachers, administration and support staff are fantastic.
I like it because you feel like u and your kids are in home. All the teachers and principal make you feelthat way. I have my two kids there and we all happy.
It's a school that has been in our community for a long time and that's where my family and children have or are going now. The teachers are great with the kids.
My kids attend Monterey Heights elementary school and I think its the best school ever
My Daughter and Son both went to Montery Heights. They both did well and went on to graduate from Mount Miguel High School. Montery Heights is a family oriented school.
Monterey Heights Elementary School is a great community school where my daughters and granddaugher attended. It takes a villiage to raise our children and Monterey Heights is part of that Village in Lemon Grove, CA
I love Monterey Heights because my daughter has been going to that School since she was in kidergarden. She is now in 4th grade. The teachers there always go out of there way to help out. She is also in speech class and that has helped her so much. They always try and do after school activities to keep them interested in School. I could not ask for a better School for my daughter. She loves going to School because of all the people there. She is very shy and they work with her and make her feel comfortable.
This is my daughter kinder year and half way through the yr she already reading,spellingand doing adding and subtracting..... She has learned more in just half yr than she learned in 2 yrs of pre school..... Her teacher is awsome......
Monterey Heights is a wonderful school who really cares about their students. The teachers are really devoted to giving each child a great education.
My grandchildren have attended this this, one is now in kindergarden. Their teachers have had the ability to inspire and instruct. My youngest is having a wonderful time beginning her learning experience with a thoughtful, motivated, caring teacher. Although the school is in a low income neighborhood the teachers and principle make all the children feel as is they are meant for great things!
I am a proud parent of a student attending Monterey. The academical qualifications are above than expected in my point of view. My child has attended 2 years and she has had great teachers as well as a great principal. Ms. Cole has really showed me her interest in all children and I have been satisfy with her help regarding my child. Staff and teacher show the same great attitude, respect and motivation too help our children. Though I would like to be more involve in activities of the school, at this time its impossible but I spent enough time in the school too learn and observe all that I have. I know my child will exceed academically in every way.
My son has gotten the extra help from the staff and the teachers really care about each child, not just the children in their class.
