Monticello IB Mission Statement

Monticello provides a challenging and meaningful education to prepare our students to become responsible global citizens and succeed in college and career in order to make a difference in a diverse world.

Monticello is an Authorized IB World School!

Monticello is an authorized International Baccalaureate World School offering the Middle Years Programme (MYP) serving the Cleveland Heights Community within this framework since 2017. The IB Program enhances the work our district staff began in 2013 developing strong professional learning communities and quality formative assessment practices. The Middle Years Program model provides a comprehensive instructional framework that emphasizes rigorous study, quality assessment practices, and a focus on providing relevance within a global context. 
IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

As an IB School, Monticello will:

  • Give students a voice in their education

  • Build students’ confidence in their learning abilities

  • Develop students’ capacity to think critically and act compassionately in a complex world

  • Add international perspectives to our academic offerings

  • Satisfy the educational needs of culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse student populations

  • Participate in yearly community service grade level events and as an 8th grader, plan and implement a Community Project
