Dear Monta Vista Parents and Students:
Welcome to Monta Vista High School! Monta Vista is a four-year comprehensive high school, founded in 1969, with a current enrollment of
about 2350 students. The extraordinary success of the school is attributed to the parents, students and staff of Monta Vista High School.
Highly motivated students with strong work ethics are supported by involved parents and dedicated staff. An API score of 956 places
Monta Vista as one of the top schools in California. With over 97% continuing their education at the college level including many
prestigious universities, it is clear that Monta Vista has consistently achieved academic excellence. Our school has a reputation for
rigorous academics and an extensive co-curricular program that is valued by the community. The staff takes great pride in maintaining
a comprehensive program that builds character and values responsibility, respect, honesty and informed decision making.

The school has recently completed a phase of new construction and modernization, with renovated classrooms, state of
the art athletic fields and facilities, and soon to be completed Campus Center.
On a more personal note, it was my pleasure to send both of my children to Monta Vista. I also worked here as a math teacher and
served as department chair. In many ways I feel that Monta Vista is a second home, and it's my goal to ensure that all Monta Vista
students feel a similar sense of well-being, pride, and ownership in our school. We are all about developing the whole child,
helping students to develop academically, personally, and culturally.
