Principal: Deborah Moore
I am extremely excited and proud to be the newly appointed principal of Monticello Middle School. It is wonderful to be back in Cleveland Heights, leading the middle school I graduated from in 1977. Monticello is the school where my academic and athletic talents blossomed. There is a rich history of student achievement at Monticello, and we are committed to continuing this great legacy.
As we begin the 2013-2014 school year, our focus will be student achievement. Your collective efforts to follow the initiatives put forth by administration will be critical to improving the academic achievement of all Monticello Middle School students. Parental support will be crucial to the implementation of student responsibility systems, academic and instructional expectations that will come forth during this school year. In addition, I will need parents to take supportive roles within the school in order to facilitate a cohesive and positive student-centered learning environment for all of our students.
One of the new initiatives at Monticello Middle School this year is the New Tech Program that will encompass the entire 6th grade class. The New Tech Program will begin our transition into an instructional framework that will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. New Tech schools focus on these subjects to help students gain the skills required to succeed in today’s challenging world. This includes the ability to think critically, solve complex problems, and drive advancements in science and technology. As a New Tech School, Monticello Middle School will be able to attract and retain students with high academic aptitudes. Our sixth grade team will usher in the beginning of our New Tech Program with the implementation of problem-based instruction in Math and project-based instruction in English, Social Studies, Science and Technology. We value and embrace this opportunity to become the only New Tech middle school in Cleveland Heights and the surrounding areas.
Monticello Middle School is the perfect place for students to discover their academic attributes utilizing creativity, inventiveness, and real world problem solving. The days ahead will be engaging, exciting and significant for the Monticello community. I look forward to working with everyone to make Monticello an exceptional learning facility for all students. When the school, parents, and community work together; there is nothing our children cannot accomplish!
We are....TIGER NATION! Go Tigers!
