Montview Earns Colorado National Title I Distinguished School Designation

Montview CDE Award

The Colorado Department of Education recently named Montview Math and Health Sciences Elementary School a National Title I Distinguished School.

Montview was selected under Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups. The school earned this recognition based on the success of its educational programs and student progress. Colorado bestows this honor on only two schools per year.

“Closing gaps create strong students who enjoy learning and taking on new challenges,” Montview Principal Michelle Barone said.

In 2012, 69 schools were selected by their individual states based on a combination of academic achievement of their students and the creative and innovative programs that contribute to their success. They joined hundreds of other distinguished schools making a difference for our country's children. Montview clearly demonstrates an array of strengths, including team approaches to teaching and learning, focused professional development opportunities for staff, individualized programs for student success and strong partnerships between the school, parents and the Aurora community.

“This award is a symbol to honor the incredible talent, skill and daily work of our Montview teachers,” Barone said. “Our entire staff works together to support our goal of helping each student have a better life because they attended Montview.”

The National Title I Association has selected examples of superior Title I school programs for national recognition since 1996.
