Montera offers parent-led tours during the school day on select Fridays during the fall starting in November. Parent-led tours start with a short talk with Mr Avent and a couple of our student leaders in the Montera courtyard outside the school office, and last about 50 minutes concluding back in the courtyard to chat with Montera parents with any other questions you and your student might have.

Montera has launched a one-to-one technology initiative to ensure that all students have access to collaborative learning tools in their classrooms. In short, our goal is to have a Chromebook for every student in every classroom. To help fulfill this goal, please donate to our campaign at https://www.gofundme.com/montera-1-to-1-chromebooks and help spread the word. It's a big ask to fulfill a big need, but we can do it! Thank you!
