    Gold Ribbon School

    Congratulations to the entire Monte Vista Elementary School Community for receiving the Gold Ribbon Award 2016!  We received notification from State Superintendent Tom Torlakson that our application and validation visit are complete and Monte Vista is officially a California Gold Ribbon School.  This is a testament to our teachers, staff, students and parents.  Great job!

    "These schools shine as bright beacons for others,
    putting forth an exemplary effort
    to ensure that every student is ready
    for 21st century college and careers," Torlakson said.
    "California teachers are developing an education model for the nation,
    training the students of today to be the problem-solvers,
    inventors, and pioneers of tomorrow." 




    Welcome to Monte Vista Elementary 

    Monte Vista is a vibrant school community with dedicated teachers, staff and parents.  We pride ourselves on being a community school with a variety of programs to meet the needs of all of our students.  The arts is a strong area of focus and is supported by both GUSD and our site PTA.  Meet the Masters, Primary Chorus, Upper Grade Orchestra, 3rd Grade Recorders, Musical Theatre and a robust ceramics program are just a few examples of how visual and performing arts are integrated into the school program. Monte Vista is home to a Korean FLAG program (Foreign Language Academies of Glendale) in grades K-5. Technology continues to be a strong area of focus with six Chromebook Carts, Robotics Program, an up-to-date lab and SmartBoards in every classroom. Our PE program provides specialized instruction in physical education, team building for all students from kindergarten through 6th grade.  Finally, academics is supported through the Common Core State Standards, newly updated library, supplemental instructional materials and opportunities for enrichment. We hold high expectations for our students in academics, citizenship and creativity.  Monte Vista is an incredible community that prepares our students for their next steps at Rosemont, Crescenta Valley High School and beyond.
