I wont even give a 1 star for the kind of culture they are developing recently here. There is zero leader ship and every teacher is their own boss and don't want to take responsibility of child education rather they depend on parents to home school and expect kids learn magically with out putting any effort. for anything and everything first thing come out they have 26 kids per class. complete chaos. like others mentioned they black list kids and try to find wrong on every activities come on they are just kids. Hopefully school board will cleanup the mess soon.
My kid has been going to this school for last 3 years, we really like the school's teachers, office staff and principal for all their services, support, they are so attentive to our questions or concerns. This is perfect elementary school in my opinion and I would recommend to any of my friends. I really appreciate their hard work and support given so far, the parents involvement are so high and the school also provides cogate and ATP. All wonderful and very friendly teachers. thanks
We love Montevideo so much!!! We have a new principle Mrs. Welch this year, who we admire for her everlasting smile and encouraging words to every child and parent. We love all the office staffs and teachers. They have beautiful hearts. You can sense the love and care they have for each child, family and for each other. Seeing Joy, Denys and Nancy work in harmony to reach out to everyone came to office is a joy. Their smiling faces and sweet attitude tell you about the school. Denys still remember my 17 year old son who attended this school in his 4th grade when we just moved in the area. Our son had received so much care and respect in the office while waiting for me. We did not fully realize what we had had until we transferred him to another closer school in his fifth grade, where the atmosphere was totally different. Our boy even came back crying because a teacher's singled him out because of he did not want to dance. 7 years later the office atmosphere is still the same, and teacher can single out a child in public (you can hear the rebuking from a speaker). Comparing to the loving and encouraging atmosphere that Montevideo have! What an exodus we had and blessing we received!
Really a wonderful school.The principal is always active...great that office staff could remember almost all the kid's names...everyone from teachers,principal and office staff are very helpful...students will learn good manners and discipline under such leadership...I'm really happy that my daughter is a part of this great environment..
I love the principal. She is very friendly and approachable and excited about her school. The children at this school were very welcoming to my daughter who came in towards the end of the school year. A great school!
My son is a 3rd grader, and we have an incoming Kindergartner. I have been so pleased with this school. My son's teachers from K - 3 have been absolutely fabulous. The general school community is very supportive and there is a great deal of parent involvement.
Montevideo elementary school is excellent and teachers are great and principal is so great. They ar erunning challenging academic programms.
Excellent teachers.. Strong principal and leadershipChallenging academic programs. My son really improved a lot compared his previous school in teh same school district.
Excellent teachers and so responsive.Lot of patience to the teachers.My son did a great job in third grade. Dynamic head of the school.
I dont like monte video elementary school there teachers are not in touch with childrens needs and dont teach much about real life just math and reading
My son just finished the school year in the first grade, It has been a rollercoaster ride! I gave the school 3 stars as it was average. I believe our teacher form a negative opinion about our child and gave my child incorect report cards in areas we know he has above average strengths my child was scored below average on a scale of 1-4 my child recieved several 1s where 3s were due. You must be completly dedicated to the school in my opinion or they may just black list the child and give them lower scores, we had spelling bees at home with another child from our class and our child out spelled another child who recieved higher report cards in spelling this made no sense to me.
Still happy with Montevideo! We still have 5 kids, one is in 8th grade and three of them are still at Montevideo, the youngest one will be in kindergareten next year. We cannot say enough nice things. Each teacher with each of our kids were suited perfect for their personalities. These are all outstanding teachers and have worked with our family to help our children succeed. Special kudos to the office staff. They are never too busy to help anyone at anytime. P.S. We will be here for the next six years and look forward to the continued support from the staff and families by this school and community. Wish more parents would contribute to the scholar fund-it's greatly needed.
My grandson attended kindergarten (2005/6) and had Mrs. Mordoff as his teacher. I cannot say enough good things about this school. I raised my children and volunteered nearly every day at their schools. Montevideo has very clearly exceeded my expectations based on past experience. While Montevideo is not a brand new school (as many are in the area) I would not trade for anything. We come from a school oriented family, Grandpa is a Principal and both Grandmothers are Teachers. The staff is top notch, and the parent participation is great. My grandson is very happy to attend school here and now looks foreword to 1st grade.
This is a wonderful school, great parent-teacher relationships are developed making a solid learning foundation for its students. Campus is clean and safe, grounds are well-kept, surrounding area is beautiful. My son is entering 4th grade next year, he loves this school and looks forward to attending class every day. Teachers are remarkable, especially Mrs. Ruth Mildwurm (2nd grade in 2006).
Our three children attend Montevideo. The staff, campus and families that attend rate a 10 plus with us. Mrs. Keeton, the principal is efficient, and has a open door policy with families. All of our teachers were top notch. We love Montevideo for it's extensive hands on approach.
