My daughter previously attended Monfort Elementary. Before she attended Monfort she loved school. Besides the constant issues I heard from other parents and teachers, about half way through her year we noticed a significant decline in her grades, attitude, confidence and excitement. After 2 months of me pushing, they finally decided she needed a tutor. After 1 month with the tutor, she tells me that my daughter is reading at a Kindergarten level (at the end of her 1st grade year) and that she is very concerned. I insisted on meeting with her core teacher, reading teacher, principal and tutor. Turns out each teacher was teaching her to read differently and not communicating that to anyone else. No wonder she was totally confused. When I asked how that was possible? The teacher replied "Well, I am too busy with a class full of kids and being the 1st grade lead to catch every little detail for every little student. And remember... we can always use more parent volunteers." So, a student falling way behind the class is a small detail that doesn t warrant her teacher s attention? Since leaving her grades, confidence, focus and positive attitude have far exceeded our hopes.

My daughter has attended Monfort for the last three years. The teachers are very nurturing and kind. They are also very attentive to any concerns I have as a parent. My daughter has been involved in several of the extra-curricular activites that Monfort offers and has enjoyed them. We do not live in the Monfort district so I make sure I complete the open-enrollment option to ensure that my daughter can attend this school.

We've been here for a little over a year (for part of 3rd grade and now part of 4th) and have had mixed feelings. I do feel that the principal and vice-principal are active in the school, but we haven't had vibrant, happy teachers (which matters more). Reports of bullying and inappropriate behavior are received well-enough, but nothing changes. We're frustrated.

I'm a new parent to the school but am so far un-impressed by Monforts Kindergarten curriculum. Now in the third month of Kindergarten the teachers are still teaching how to count to 10 and how to say the ABC's. My daughter after attending St. Peter's Pre-school was able to count to 100 and say, write, and sound her ABC's; however she is being held up because of large class sizes and not being able to get the attention she and many others deserve. Monfort needs to stop this 'No Child Left Behind' (i.e. pass everyone and teach 2 years behind the grade level) and focus on teaching; not babysitting! Kudos to Monfort for Extracurricular activities, Safety, and Parental Involvement.

At Monfort they have a poor teacher student ratio. In first grade there are 30 students per teacher. How do we expect teachers to be able to give the children the time they need with classes this size? Our school district has put to much on this test everything revolves around this test. They have eliminated recess, as though to punish the kids. Children are going to take a break, scheduled or not. They moved their spring break back three weeks,due to the test. Then after the students have taken the test they do not do much academically. Very disappointed with this school.

My son is only in first grade at Monfort, so my experience is limited to Kindergarten. So far I have been very pleased with what he has learned, the communication to parents from the teachers, and the discipline incentive started this year. Being a teacher myself, I believe he is getting a quality education and have had no concerns about the content of what he is learning.

I am a parent at Monfort Elementary. This has been a great school for my boys. We actually live outside of Monfort boundries and have to apply every year to have them stay in the school. Applause to Monfort!
