Our daughter is in kindergarten at Montclair. We are absolutely thrilled with the wonderful experience we've had so far! Our daughter loves school, and her teacher is fabulous. The principal knows all the children and is very visible and active in the classrooms. There's tons of parental involvement and volunteer opportunities, and I always feel welcome to visit or help out with classroom activities. We were actually considering moving to NE PDX but decided to stay in Garden Home partially because of the excellent quality of Montclair for our daughter and two sons (in the future when they are older). I can't say enough great things!
Montclair Elementary School is an amazing school. We feel very lucky to live so close to such a wonderful school. The parents are encouraged to be involved and the teachers really care and you can tell that they enjoy their jobs.
Montclair is a public school that would certainly be worth paying for! We feel very fortunate to have our children attend Montclair. Mrs. Bailey, the principal, knows every child and runs a magnificently tight organization. Just don't be late, Mrs. Bailey is watching!
