Montebello Elementary School
Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

It is incredibly tough to be effective when your classrooms are overcrowded. 25 four-year olds are too many to handle.

Pre-K students have 2 assignments per night. That can be a bit much, considering 4-year olds aren't thorough writers.

It would be tough to develop respect when the older children will nearly trample the younger ones.

There is a total lack of compassion for students who aren't a part of this closed circle.

Fairness, honesty, and integrity would require giving each student an opportunity to learn regardless of barrier. We haven't had that experience here.

I do not like this school at all. Just waiting for the opportunity to pull my child out and send her somewhere else. There seems to be a closed circle of information that leaves a certain portion of the population uninformed. Some things don't make sense: the cost of things such as school trips and pictures are higher than other schools with the same economic makeup, yet the school is no better kept than most. The students seem to always be out of control, and there is no division between middle school students, who are adult-sized, and the smallest children, who are 4 or 5 years old. It's a sad sight to watch small children being nearly trampled at dismissal.

This is one of the best Schools in Baltimore City. My nieces were able to read complete sentences in Kindergarten. My oldest neice graduates from Senior High this year and she has maintained her Straight A Status and values that the teachers of this school deposited into her life. Another niece who is in the 7th grade was able to attend Loyola College reading camp this summer. Also our second grader is keeping up the pace as she prefers to read then watch TV. Ms. Gilly is an outstanding teacher for anyone who wants to give their child a great start - All of my nieces started with Ms. Gilly and they are focused and ambitious. I love this school and the staff who is always have time for the children and parents.

Montibello Elementary School is a wonderland of learning.I am very impressed with the positive learning environment that exist their.I am also very impressed with the way teachers leverage technology with smart boards and how extra support is given in the classroom to all of the students with special needs. Teachers are accountable for the learning of their students and performance is tracked in a manner where the principal can select from and array of alternatives for improvement,from additional professional development to coaching and mentoring, to addressing teachers that donot respond appropriately to the previously mentioned interventions.

I love Montebello. Every year the school gets better. The teachers seem to have a better handle on educating kids every year. The principal is great. She truly loves her students. It looks like a private school with all the upgrades this year. Nice job staff.

My son has been going here since Kindergarten and he is now in the 4th grade. I really love the school academics here. Since Kindergarten, homework has always been 4 pages to reinforce what was learned in the classroom. Some parents complained that this was too much homework...but I say this is perfect. Sure it takes up a lot of time but if studies is important to you as a parent, you will be satisfied with the assigned homework. They also do a great job in preparing the students for the MSA, as they hold Saturday prep classes throughout the year (up until the MSA testing in the Spring). The principle and the teachers are approachable with a wonderful open door policy.
