    Special Education

    Our school is committed to a program of responsible inclusion for students who are diverse learners. This means that we offer an educational program in the least restrictive environment designed to meet the learning needs of the broadest possible spectrum of students.

    We provide a responsible inclusion model where special educators and general educators co-plan and co-teach classes. In addition, special education para-professionals work side-by-side with all children to ensure that their goals are being met even when the special education teacher is not there to assist them.


    Middle School Initiative

    Montebello has officially transitioned to an Elementary/Middle School. All of our classrooms have state of the art technology and highly qualified teachers. Our school counselor will assist our students in making the transition from middle school to high school. We are continuing with our offerings of advanced classes for our students in math and are grooming them for the citywide high school programs. Please remind your children daily about the expectation of excellence. Parents, please make sure to look in your child’s book bag nightly to determine if we have sent communication home to you. Because of the amount of high-school transition information that we will be sending home, it is imperative that you are kept abreast on what is coming up. Students must maintain a high academic average to better their chances of placement in these programs. Their grades will incorporate the following:
    • Daily participation in class
    • Daily attendance
    • Skill Focus Assessments
    • Completion of Quarterly Projects
    • Science Laboratory Assignments
    • Tests & Quizzes
    • Homework
    • Extra Credit Assignments as determined by the classroom teacher
