Montclair is one of Corpus Christi finest schools in all of CCISD, the most wonderful staff and excellent teachers. The principals awesome. They all care so deeply about your children. The only problem was one teacher in the Special Ed dept Mrs Martin she is a rasict, and has no paitence for children and no proper training.

Montclair is a great school. I have had three children go through this school. There have been minimal problems, and the ones that we have had were taken care of imediately. My children were also pleased with the school. Overall it has been a great experience with all involved.

My son has attened Montclair for the past 4 years and I have been very happy. They offer various activities such as student council, choir, special education services, computer classes, spanish and others I am sure. The teachers have been awesome and appear to genuinely care about their students. The leadership from the principle to the vice principle is excellent. They seem to go above and beyond in their attitudes and doing what they say they are going to do. My son has received an excellent education here, going beyond what I have seen from other schools as well as other districts. I feel good about him attending Montclair. They will listen to your concerns and address them-that is very important to me.
