Open Quote Monta Loma is a diverse community with an inclusive culture and a dedicated set of teachers and staff. Over the past 7 yrs I have witnessed the school community grow, improve and adapt to many changes, all for the best. New construction is finishing up to complement the academic and social changes being implemented to ensure each student receives what they need to succeed. Close Quote

Open Quote I have been overwhelmingly impressed with this lovely neighborhood school for the last 3 years. I have a 2nd grader and Kindergartener who each have their own unique style of learning and the Differentiated Instruction they receive at Monta Loma has truly helped foster their love of learning. The community is diverse and though parental-involvement could be better, it is such a warm, nurturing environment for the students/families alike. Principal Lyon is hands-on (and a former educator!) who makes an earnest effort to communicate with parents about both the successes and challenges the school faces. She's very approachable and really listens. I've loved every one of the teachers my girls have had and my girls have thrived both in the classroom and out while on the Monta Loma campus. My professional background is in private school education administration so I feel I can speak to the depth and breadth of the capabilities and talents Monta Loma teachers bring to the table. They are some of the hardest-working, committed & nurturing educators I have ever experienced and definitely well-deserving of the California Distinguished School award that was bestowed in 2014. The enrichment opportunities are endless as well - choir, band, gardening, art, physical education, chess, Lego robotics and student leadership to name a few. I look forward to many more years of involvement at Monta Loma Elementary. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
