Sorry for the late response. I hope I can still be of help. I am a 1987 alum of MKA and currently serve on their alumni council. I live in Montclair and can give you a candid view on the school; both the good and the bad. Feel free to e-mail me and I can give you some more details. firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.StantonRealtors.com
This is the second answer to your question because I just had a thought. In addition to being area realtors, I am a vision therapist for an local eye doctor. I have had 4 patients who all attend Montclair Kimberly, both in grammar school and high school. The high school students started in the lower grades and the grammar school students will be attending the high school. Not all of those students live in Montclair. Also, my neighbor in Bloomfield has two children who attend the school. I've never heard of anyone not being pleased -- but as I said in my previous email, they have a criteria for students attending.
If your children have been accepted, then it's a non issue, but if they have not been accepted, you need to check it out. If you want to talk further, you can refer to our website for our contact information.
Are you moving to Montclair or a surrounding town? It's a well-rated private school that goes through high school. We suggest you contact the school directly or check out their website. By doing that you will learn the criteria for sending your children there.
