This is an A rated school. My two children have attended MCE based on their high level of academics and all around structure. Overall, the teachers and expecially the principal are quite to put it bluntly; awesome. They really care about your children's education, health and well-being. Their maintenance and cafeteria staff are awesome and very friendly as well. Although the school is not yet fully diversified within the teaching realm, there are a few wonderful, wonderful teachers like Mrs.Cathy Bodenweber, Mrs. Robbin WIlliams, to name a few who should be commended for their professionalism and expertise in their craft. These teaches genuinely care for your children's growth, education and well-being. Overall, this is an "A" rated school in many elements as a parent's point of view. The only issue I would like to see improve is that the school hire teachers with different nationalities and ethnicities.
Great School!! :) I am using this website to get info on schools out of state per i will be moving and looked up the School i love so much that i send my kids to. I Zone my children out of the school they should go to for them to attend this school! The teachers, principal, and staff is very friendly, helpful, and i am taken back at the results showing here! The other schools near by show a better rating yet i wouldnt change the kids school if i was not moving out of state! Reading is made fun, Art is set up online where you can see your kids art, I will miss montclair so much!
My son moved to Monte Clair at the end of the year. He passed where he was sure to fail just by the love and support that Mr. Coyle brought to the class room. I am greatful to have my son retern there this year for first grade.
I have friends with children in private schools in the area, and they are jealous of the education my children receive at Montclair! It is a top-notch school and I highly recommend it!
Montclair is a Wonderful school - with all of the family atmosphere a small neighborhood school offers, and the quality education of a 21st century model school. I feel that my child is in excellent hands during the day, and is being very well prepared for the big wide world. Parent involvement is encouraged, and the whole family gets involved with extra events. In the 4 years we've been there, there have been No bullying problems. All the kids get along and respect one another. I couldn't ask for a better experience for my child and my family!
This school is great. Parents are really involved and for the most part teachers are wonderful. On the down side, they do not have much in the way of extracurricular activities and they just got rid of music in exchange for art. I personally believe we should have both!
I have four children. My three oldest have attended Montclair for the past 8 years. My oldest has graduated & my youngest will begin K there next year. I concider the education my children have recieved to be as good as a private school eduacation in a lot of ways. My children have all thrived & continue to score year after year above avg on the FCAT. The one thing I wish would be improved upon would be the lack of a real arts program. It is usually at this age that children develop a life long love of the arts. The gym program is also lacking & our kids really need regular organised physical activity these days in school as well as out. Recess is just not enough. I'm sure this is a problem that is beyond the schools control, but it is an issue that concerns me.
Great academic programs with very qualified teachers. They are called 'the little university'. Parent involvement is high.
Montclair was a great school for my child because it was a safe school for children.There were also a lot of team work at that school.My child loved montclair because she felt comtorble and she made a lot of friends.She thought the food there was great and she said the staff there was safe and the teachers were wounderful.The principal was great and she loved all of the staff.It was sad for her to leave montclair beacause she had to leave all her friends and teachers behind.She loved the school and was sad to leave.
My son attended Kindergarten at Montclair for the 2003-2004 school year and it was a wonderful experience. There were only 19 kids in his class, and the teacher was able to devote a lot of individual attention to each student. Would highly recommend this school.
Both my daughter and son graduated from Montclair. They were very well prepared for the next level in Jr. High. The administration and teachers were caring and purposeful in their preparation. Parental involvement in school activities is encouraged and accepted. My kids and I have positive and cherished memories of the time they spent in Montclair Elementary.
