School Reviews

This review about Monticello Academy is long past due. My daughter has been going to Monticello Academy for past six years now. She started in preschool and now she is in 3rd grade. And over these years I have seen my daughter and the school evolve and develop amazingly. We chose this school because we saw laughter, happiness, hugs, and dancing along with writing, fun little experiments, and field trips when we visited the school. All the teachers are very hard working. The school offers enrichment classes in Computers, Spanish, Music, Art and Drama, and PE as a part of the curriculum. And the enrichment teachers work as hard as the core teachers. In computers, my daughter is already learning animation. The Music, and Art and Drama programs have drastically improved over the last six years and both the teachers work hard to educate the students about different instruments and art forms. Their drama/ theater productions are evolving every year. Of course, this is all possible with the support of the principal Ms. Trinh who is diligently working to improve the school at all levels. She is at every single school event not monitoring but helping, organizing, and participating. Monticello Academy organizes multiple events for students and parents including walkathons, talent shows, international potlucks, end of school year dance party, movie nights, parent appreciation night, and also events to help communities. There are a wide variety of after-school classes being offered from Taekwondo, Robotics, Chinese, Hindi, Band, Basketball, Soccer, Chess, Tennis, Mindfulness, and Track and Field. The school has a kitchen on campus and they provide hot lunch and snacks every day. It is a nut free school which is a peace of mind for parents of kids with nut allergies. Another plus is that there is a school nurse on campus. In short, the school is Ms. Trinh's baby and she evidently nurtures it in many different ways. My daughter is very happy here. It is her second home.
