Monterey Elementary is a culturally diverse neighborhood school with resources that include pre-kindergarten, all-day kindergarten and offers transportation to a before- and-after-school program. Our curriculum meets the needs of our culturally diverse student population by providing a variety of programs and teaching strategies aligned with the Colorado State standards.
Parents and community members of Monterey are an integral part of each child's education by active involvement in his/her learning. Monterey staff is dedicated to providing a nurturing and positive learning environment for all students.
Dedicated staff members at Monterey Elementary provide students with the opportunity to pursue a wide variety of academic, athletic, scientific and artistic endeavors.
The Literacy and Math Programs at Monterey Elementary enable teachers to utilize effective research-based instructional strategies to maximize learning for all students. We are able to provide ongoing staff development through the Colorado Reading First Grant and District initiatives that support teachers in using best practices in instruction. Academic and extra-curricular programs include:
- SuccessMaker Computer Reading and Math Program
- Full Day Kindergarten
- Accelerated Reading
- STARReading and Math
- Counseling Groups (Personal/Social and Academic)
- Art Club
While there is still work to be done on raising student achievement, Monterey students have made great gains in academic growth according to the Longitudinal Student Growth Model measurement used by the Colorado Department of Education.
Our students are proud to be Monterey Mustangs! Monterey staff and students build meaningful relationships to promote student achievement and encourage our kids to do their best. Students are challenged daily to apply their reading and writing skills through activities that require high levels of critical thinking.
In addition to our students, our community includes many extended family members. We welcome parents, grandparents and others to become part of the Monterey Family.
