I currently have a 4th grader and Kindergartener at Montclair now. The school is wonderful! My kids love their teachers and their classmates. Montclair has a full time nurse who is fantastic, and a wonderful music and arts program. The full-time gifted resources teacher is also a wonderful asset. Whenever I'm in the school I always see the Principal and Vice Principal walking the halls greeting students and teachers with a smile. It's truly a great place to be! We couldn't be happier!
Depending on the personality of your child you may have different opinions. For a child who likes school this may be not enough. For those who's child gets frustrated easily and shuts off the minute they leave the school building this may be too much.
Teachers are willing to work with special needs and home life difficulties. Time is often provided at school for the child to complete work that was not accomplished at home.
My child has attended Montclair Elementary for 4 years and is beginning the 4th grade. We have had exemplary teachers. Any learning difficulties have been actively addressed and assistance provided when necessary. The Principal, Mrs. Tawnya Soltis is a hands on approach leader. The school has a very open arms atmosphere. Any behavioral issues or concerns were addressed privately and satisfactorily. A positive reinforcement and rewards system make this a very pleasant school to attend.
My two daughters attend here and we couldn't be happier. Three years and 4 fantastic teachers. The principal has a knack for hiring the best teachers. There is a great volunteer base as well. The school is warm and welcoming and my girls have truly excelled. We love Montclair Elementary School!
My Two daugters love their school and all the teachers very nice The principal (Mrs Soltis), She remember all the name of student then parents too. this is awsome school in my area. Thanks for all the teachers and staff there.
I think this school is a wonderful learning system. The fundraisers seem very excellent, and other activities as well. The principal (Mrs Soltis) is a very nice principal and tries to do anything to help kids and adults. The teachers there are very helpful and will help kids. There are also tutors there that help kids improve on there skills, and when the tutoring is over, the kids has learned a lot. If you are planning to enroll your child to a school, choose this one!
Why is Montclair such a great school? Enthusiastic teachers, involved parents, and a philosophy that encourages different learning styles means children are happy and engaged here. Montclair also has a very nice, safe location, on a quiet street in the heart of a beautiful neighborhood.
