Welcome to STRIVE Prep - Montbello

Dear STRIVE Prep - Montbello Families,

We are so excited to welcome students to STRIVE Prep - Montbello for the 2018-2019 school year! This school year brings a refreshed focus on our core beliefs and mission: to provide a safe school environment along with a rigorous academic experience to support our scholars in preparing for college. Along with preparing your child for success in college, we also deeply believe that our scholars deserve a just world that they help to create so we are building STRIVE Prep - Montbello into a joyful place built on high expectations, structured learning, and shared responsibility.

We will have a new schedule structure that allows our scholars to receive the English Language Development and reading support they deserve from specialized teachers. We will continue to also provide sports programming with flag football and volleyball in the fall, boys and girls basketball in the winter, and boys and girls soccer in the spring. This fall we will also have events such as Back to School Night, family conferences at the end of quarter one, and a fall carnival in October. We will continue to offer STRIVE Together as another family engagement tool and encourage you to participate. We are looking forward to an amazing school year and are excited to build a partnership with you for your scholar’s success!

-Lyndsay Lau, Principal
