School Profile

Welcome to Miramonte Elementary School, where we proudly embrace the spirit of the Mustangs! Nestled in the heart of El Monte, California, our K-6 school is dedicated to providing a nurturing and enriching educational experience for all students. At Miramonte, we believe in fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

One of our top priorities at Miramonte Elementary is English Language Development (ELD), ensuring that all students, including English Language Learners (ELLs), have the language skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. Through targeted instruction and support, we empower students to become proficient in English and access rigorous academic content across all subject areas.

In addition to our focus on English Language Development, Miramonte Elementary offers the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program, which prepares students for college and career readiness by teaching them essential academic and life skills. Through AVID, students learn critical thinking, organization, collaboration, and communication skills that are essential for success in higher education and the workforce.

Miramonte Elementary also implements PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) strategies to create a positive and inclusive school culture where all students feel safe, respected, and valued. Through PBIS, we teach and reinforce positive behaviors, provide students with social-emotional learning opportunities, and celebrate their achievements to foster a sense of belonging and pride in our school community.

Furthermore, Miramonte Elementary partners with the University of California, Irvine (UCI) to enhance our math curriculum through the UCI Math program. Through this partnership, students engage in hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences that deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts and develop their problem-solving skills. Our goal is to equip students with the mathematical proficiency they need to succeed in an increasingly complex world.

At Miramonte Elementary, we understand that reading is the foundation of academic achievement and lifelong learning. We prioritize literacy instruction across all grade levels, offering a comprehensive reading program that focuses on phonics, fluency, vocabulary development, and comprehension strategies. By instilling a love for reading and providing students with the skills and resources they need to become proficient readers, we empower them to succeed academically and pursue their passions.

As the proud principal of Miramonte Elementary School, I am committed to working collaboratively with our dedicated team of educators, staff, families, and community partners to ensure that every student receives a high-quality education and has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Together, we strive to create a nurturing and inclusive learning environment where all students feel inspired, challenged, and supported to excel academically, socially, and emotionally. Join us at Miramonte Elementary School, where every Mustang is encouraged to dream, learn, and succeed! Go Mustangs!
