TRANSFORMING INTO A COMMUNITY SCHOOL

Montebello High School is one of the 15 schools that has partnered with the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) for the Community Schools Initiative. The Community Schools model is a strategy aimed at disrupting poverty and addressing longstanding inequities. The approach highlights areas of need and leverages community resources so students are healthy, prepared for college and ready to succeed in the workplace and in civic life. CLICK HERE for additional information on this initiative.

In other words, it is a model that collaborates with community partners to ensure that ALL students have what they need to succeed. We acknowledge that students cannot learn unless their basic needs are met first. Therefore, as we transform into a Community School, one of our goals is to share with you community resources that may be of support to you during these challenging times. If you need further assistance or have unique circumstances that may be impacting your student's overall well-being, you may complete a referral and our MHS Schools staff will reach out to you over the phone.
