About Montclaire

  • Montclaire Elementary School offers kindergarten through fifth grade classes. Our school has been named a State Distinguished School based on outstanding schoolwide programs for several years. Montclaire is known for its community involvement and its quality of education.

    Montclaire, located in Los Altos, California, is one of 25 schools in the Cupertino Union School District. We serve a population of over 500 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Our roots go deep in Los Altos; Montclaire School has been a neighborhood school for fifty years. Montclaire, like our district at large, celebrates diversity as its strength and is committed to developing an inclusive, caring educational community in which each individual has an equal opportunity to achieve his or her potential.

    Montclaire is very fortunate to be supported by our Montclaire Parent Teacher Organization (MPTO). MPTO is a non-profit organization that engages the community to contribute to quality education at Montclaire.

    Each year a school plan and budget is established by School Site Council (SSC) which sets priorities for spending school and district funds. SSC is an elected body made up of parents, teachers, and the principal.

    Parent support of Montclaire is also seen in the many ways they volunteer. The school and the community view themselves as a "family" and a "team", and demonstrate mutual respect, caring, and communication.
