Montclair Elementary


Montclair Elementary is a TK-5 public elementary school and a proud recipient of the 2015 National Blue Ribbon Award. The award ranks Montclair in the top 15% of all schools – public, private and charter – in the United States. Located at the north end of Montclair Village and bordering Montclair Park, the school enjoys nearly 3.5 acres of campus. The school has a dedicated, caring staff of teachers and administrators, an energetic and committed community of parents and volunteers, and an engaged student population.

The school was first built in 1925 in response to home development in the Montclair Village hills. The four classroom structure welcomed 87 students, K-4, for its first semester. The original building of brick with tile roof was later considered an earthquake risk and replaced. The new school building, with nine classrooms, an administrative suite, an arts and crafts room, a PTA room and a Library, was created. In 1947, a Cafeteria and Assembly Hall were added. In 2013, a new building was added to the campus which houses a new Multipurpose Room, new classrooms, a faculty lounge, and a living roof. A new learning garden and play structure was also added to the campus.

Scholarships are available. Please contact for details.
