High School

                                         Hello and Welcome to La Monte High School!

    My name is Hilliary Owens and I am so excited to get this school year under way as the new Secondary Principal. I am a Sedalia native and obtained my Master’s Degree in Administration from the University of Central Missouri in 2015. I am honored to begin my Administration career at La Monte. I know that this district is deep-rooted in tradition and legacy, which I am eager to learn and continue.

At La Monte, we have a shared mission to educate and empower all students through quality educational programs that respect individual differences and diversity to achieve lifelong success. Because of our ever-changing and diverse society, we must also adapt our educational strategies and procedures to best prepare our students.

La Monte has dedicated and caring staff who strive to always put students first. We are all committed to meeting and exceeding the goals set before us by the federal, state, and local educational agencies.

I look forward to meeting and working with all of you this school year! In the event of any questions or issues, please don’t hesitate to call the office and set up a meeting or send me an email at howens@lamonte.k12.mo.us
