The teachers are not fun and don't care about anything i cant even listen to music at lunch out loud and the food is terrible it either tastes like cardboard or plastic. i mean there is good teachers like Mr.O he is amazing. some teaches purposely fail you because they hate you and just don't care and that is being a but influences on the kids. and all the money that the money it goes to stuff and like teachers that don't even need it and they gave the students chrome books and blocked everything so the kids can go on anything at all.

In a small community that has parents that are very involved with the kids and school. We take education and sports very seriously. But being a small community can also have it's downfalls. Money to afford the things that will make our children able to compete with larger areas with more funds. This money would help with the things we can't afford. The only complaint I have about the school is that if you have a family that has been here forever or should I say that certain last name, that child you get special privileges in all areas. But I guess small towns are like that. But that's not always the teachers fault, just the way it is.

It is apparent in the level of writing skill (or lack thereof) which of the prior posts are relevant. Montello is a relatively empoverished, small, rural community with limited resources and in that context I believe this school does a very good job. There has been a transition at the District Administrator level as well as the Principal and both gentlemen have been quite well received by the community and their staff. Parental involvement in Montello Schools is a shortcoming. The local culture here is not one of embracing your child's school so much as defending your child when the school tries to 'do something' to them. Children will succeed in Montello if they are cooperative and willing to try, if they have troubles with conformity and lack a respect for authority or are discouraged by parents they will have much less of a chance to succeed.

I'm offering this as one students perspective on Montello High School. A previous poster suggested this as a school where only the smart will thrive. I was doing so bad in that school I was forced between dropping out or graduating a year and a half late. I choose to drop out and get my HSED, where I graduated head of the class, and now I'm in a state college for IT. Montello High School failed me and the majority of my friends; who, dispite failing out of their classes at Montello High also went on to recieve higher education and enter managment level positions in various companies. Mrs. Ellenbecker and the late Mr. Day were shining examples of what teachers can and should be. There may be some others in the school that fall prone to stereotyping and generally fail to try with some students.

I feel if your child has needs the school does not do all they can do for them. They say they do. They even say the kids arent applying themself. But it is them that have fallen short. There has been 2 exceptional teachers there that have cared. Mr. Sauld and Mrs.Stelter. Very awesome. If your child is smart they do well in Montello. If they have any need they fall way short. And its to bad.

I think the teachers at Montello want the students to excel in whatever their future career might be. The students are alright. I tink their parents should be more involved in the childs everyday life. The students dont really care what type of grades they get but the teachers push them so they will. They make school fun. Our new principle i htink has made an improvement i our school. He is very nice.
