It is with great enthusiasm and pride that we welcome you to the 2015-2016 academic year in the Montebello Unified School District.
The District has established a legacy of academic excellence, one in keeping with our mission to promote rigor, relevance, and relationships. Our schools are dedicated to establishing safe learning environments that foster intellectual growth: providing a wide range of extracurricular activities; and advancing educational equity by instilling in all students the belief that they can be successful life-long learners.
Led by a Board of Education steadfast in its belief that there must be high expectations for all students, the Montebello Unified School District prepares students to be college-and-career-ready by offering high-quality instruction, providing a rigorous, standards-based curriculum, and integrating the latest technology into student learning activities. Furthermore, we strive to engage all stakeholders in facilitating the success of our schools and students.
Montebello Unified School District offers Advanced Placement and College Preparatory courses, Career Technical Education, Pathways and foreign language programs, while effectively integrating technology into the curriculum.
We look forward to continuing to work as a team for the benefit of every student in the Montebello Unified School District. Parents and guardians play a vital role in supporting academic success by getting to know the teachers and staff at their child's school; asking about their school day and staying informed about their child's progress during the year. Parents can help by making sure that their child comes to school on time and ready to learn every day.
Best wishes for a successful year.
