Site Introduction

Montemalaga continues to provide an outstanding education for all students. Montemalaga places much emphasis on Character Development as we make great choices according to Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success. Montemalaga is excited to implement a positive approach to school behavior as we work to develop the whole child. Character traits and leadership skills are highlighted and practiced with a variety of activities throughout each month. The Montemalaga staff is collaborative, creative and caring. The PTA and parent involvement are vital to the success of Montemalaga. We encourage a strong sense of community where people develop long lasting friendships.
