38 Parent Reviews for Monta Loma Elementary School

My son started going to Kindergarten at Monta Loma from this year. It's been one month and so far I liked it. There are several ways parents can contribute in Kid's classes and learning. The Kindergarten teachers are very involved with kids and work hard (I was in a couple of classes to experience this). ...  Read more

I've been very unhappy with this principal. She doesn't bother to learn kids' names and isn't personable or friendly. Mostly gives the impression she's just clocking it in. This is a school with some serious challenges in terms of its population of English learners and I just don't think the leadership ...  Read more

Also, some of the kids are spanish and not even learning ANY english! Same for the parents. Plus my sister once told a story of a rat running around the cafeteria-nothing ...  Read more

The teachers are okay. The principal leadership could be improved. She is not involved enough and does not know the students as well as she should. I feel a lot of the the kids that attend Monta Loma are not taught morals and what is right and wrong in regards to behavior. The kids seem to be 'fast' ...  Read more

We hope our son and daughters have the same teachers in the years to come! Great new principal-very friendly and attentive! You are the biggest advocate ...  Read more

I have a child in kinder at Monta Loma and I have to say that I'm not very impressed. My child's teacher is a disorganized mess and it doesn't help that she's overwhelmed by the 27 students in her class. She keeps asking for assistance in the class but a majority of the parents don't speak english so ...  Read more

I am the parent of a special needs child. I came here from Sunnyvale two years ago and have been so impressed by the staff. The special ed teachers know me and my child by name and are always going out of their way to let me know about my child's successes. The teachers here are top rate. I am so lucky ...  Read more

The quality of education offered at this school is below standard. Special education dept. is of very poor standard and needs improvement

I really, honestly have never enjoyed having one of my children go to a better school than this one. In fact, I wish this school would continue on to the middle school for my child, because this is her last year. From kindergarden thru fifth grade, all the years were great. I love the teachers. I love ...  Read more

Monta Loma is a wonderful neighborhood school with a diverse community and dedicated teachers. We found the Principal - Cathy Baur - approachable, committed, and supportive of differentiated learning. Both of our kids are students at Monta Loma since kindergarten and are now 5th & 3rd graders. The ...  Read more
