I am very happy with this school. As a parent i feel that school is supporting me. Counselor always available, teachers reply to my emails and love school loop. What a great tool, to be inform about our children performance at school. Great school!
I have children with special needs and thanks to administrators, staff and teacher they are doing great, are on track. Teachers are always willing to support my children in any way they can. Great school!
As a former student, I can said that I really appreciated all the school support from teachers. Miss my school, now at college I can see all the great things and fun that I had while at Montclair. Great years.....
The teachers really care about their students. They talk about college in class to motivate students to go to college. The AVID program really stands out. It helps students prepare for college and informs them about how to acquire loans/financial aids/ scholarships in college.
I love this school. It may not be the best be the teachers are amazing. The teachers in montclair love their students and they are willing to help them. "You Can't hide that cavalierly pride" <3
As a current student at MHS I know that there are many things that need improvement. The campus is filthy and overclouded at times, the bathrooms are just unsanitary, but it's not because of the janitors. On the contrary, it's because of the student, many of them don't care much about cleaning up after themselves. This 2nd semester of the 12-13 school year, MHS opened a new 2 level building in which every classroom is a Promethean Active Classroom, teachers use ipads and "smart boards". MHS also uses SchoolLoop, which lets students interact more with teachers and their schoolwork through the internet. Also, they have an excellent academic program, mostly honors and AP, that has surpassed that of other schools in the district. The staff is extremely helpful, they truly care about a student's success, whether in school or out. They are an AVID National Demonstration School because their AVID program does guide students towards a 4 year university. Parent involvement is very low. Overall, the school's improvement is slow but constant.
Is not the best, but they are getting better, also is an AVID National Demonstration School, they are guiding the students to a 4 year University. I'll enroll my child for sure in that school. The only problem is they need more parent involvement.
This school is horrible. Everyone there, including the teachers have a low-level of thinking and the education is middle-school level. Im learning absolutely nothing and i wish i could transfer schools. The material in a 10th grade honors english class is that of an 8th grader in a non-honors class. All the books we have been reading, I have already read in 8th grade. This school is also overcrowded and the administration babies the students too much. Hopefully this school will improve in the future for our fellow young ones, but right now, this nightmare is getting nowhere but downhill. Whatever you do, don't send your child here, it will be a mistake that you will regret.
Montclair High is diffidently the worst out of the whole Chaffey-Joint Union High School District. It has so much to improve on. Its just this huge throw-up in the cafeteria and the janitor ist there to clean it up.
As a current student, I feel that our school has much to improve on. Our campus is filthy and overcrowded. I also feel that the money is managed very poorly, even though we know there are all these budget cuts. On the plus side, the staff is very caring and we have tutoring everyday of the week; however, I agree with that student down there that there is not much academic progress. Yes we have an excellent Honors/AP program, but that only involves the gifted/talented students, a category which the majority of our campus does not fall under. In general, I would not want my child attending this school when there are better choices out there.
As a student, my second year at Montclair has been at a satisfactory level. The teachers are caring, but there is not much academic progress. The school is very crowded, and the only changes that occur is the appearance! The school overall, is not the best choice for your child.
I am a current student at MHS and I disagree with most parents rating because they haven't had the experience we have had. Our school has a caring staff, but our procters nt so much. It has a family feeling to it and you can express yourself with no one judging you.
I am very proud to be a teacher at MHS! I feel that we have made outstanding strides in acedemic achievement for all students. Our campus is clean and safe. We have tutoring everyday of the week. Teachers, staff and administration truely care about our students. Any student who wants to learn will definitely benifit from attending Montclair High School.
Great school, have had to brings an issue to the staffs attention & it was handled. Daughter is doing great, looking forward to my 2nd daughter attending this year.
This is the best school my child has ever attended.The staff is just wonderful.The most wonderful thing about the school is that the principal cares about the students.He attend all the meetings and all the school activities.
As a former president of the drama dept. I know that there was little support there, to me it seemed if it wasnt a sport it didnt matter. The teachers didnt really get involved with the school work they were teaching. Mr. Douglas was one of a few that actually cared.
Im a Montclair High alumni. This school is amazing! All the teachers are dedicated to teaching, and it's pretty much obvious. The school has an excellent honors/AP program.
As an alumni of Montclair High School, I look back on my high school experience with nothing but good memories. The teachers in the honors and AP programs are absolutely amazing! All the teachers genuinely care about their students and do their best to help them succeed. Of course the school, just as any other, has it's flaws. I will admit that I was not too fond of the administration; but what student is? The point is that Montclair High is an excellent school with excellent teachers and programs. I should also mention that it's one of the best schools in the district. Overall I think that mohi rocks! ~r. castillo
As a student of montclair high school, I have to simply say, money is managed poorly. Despite this, there are excellent teachers in general, but espicially in the AP and Honors programs.
