About this school

Montera is a school that is located on a lovely 20 acre campus. We have students from all walks of life as part of our community. We have the honor of being a California Distinguished School. Montera is home to a diverse staff of teachers that have been members of our community for many years. We are the largest middle school in Oakland and promote excellence in academics and achievement. Currently, we are actively working to prepare our students for the California Common Core Standards for both Math and English Language Arts; we are at the forefront of this transition. As we are making these shifts, we are engaging students in powerful and masterful instruction. Our Parent Teacher Organization is a wonderful part of our school and we work effortlessly and tirelessly together for our students' success. Montera offers many clubs, sports and activities for which our students may participate. We work to teach to the whole child so that each student finds success at Montera. Go Montera, Go Toros!
