This school is the best. My daughter has been going to Montclair since she was in Kindergarten and now is inthe 4 th grade, its a family school, the teachers, principal and parents are really involved and its great to know everyone, even the office staff by first name basis. My daughter is a minority at the school but is and never had been treated any different. It has been a great experience at Montclair, i couldn't have picked a better school.

This school has great leadership through the principal and vice principal. The teachers and staff work together well like a family and there is a lot of parent involvement. My daughter struggled in reading and math but Montclair really stepped up to the plate and offered her tutoring and her teacher really gave her alot of one on one attention.

This is our first year at Montclair. Overall, our experience has been very positive. We have been extremely impressed with the 4th grade teachers. Garden Club is offered The kids are very nice, and the coaches know most of the students' names. The office staff is very easy to work with.

The only experience I have of Montclair Elementary is of its kindergarten. But I would have to say that that experience has been a most pleasant one. I have everyone, from administration, faculty and staff, to really take an interest in the children. I was impressed how everyone makes it a point to learn the students names. I think the fact that it is a small school, nestled in the middle of a neighborhood, makes the school a very family-oriented campus. My children, husband and I have truely enjoyed our time at Montclair.
