Montabella Community Schools Reviews

Montabella Community Schools has potential. It currently, and unfortunately, needs change. There are teachers working who blatantly lie to their higher ups, with no consequences. There is no learning for any student outside of the standard kid who can take notes and has a good memory. Kids with mental illness are treated like absolute trash and are not helped when they ask. I'm glad I no longer have to return to this high school, as it was very damaging to my health. Any kid who doesn't play a sport and isn't "book smart" is disliked by staff. There is more bullying from teachers than among peers in my experience. The lunch ladies, however, are fantastic. I will miss them. They were always kind and willing to help. The food was as good as a public school lunch could be. Will miss the pizza boats.

I currently go to Montabella Community Schools. I am a Sophomore in High School. There is little to no diversity in this community full of white people. It is surrounded by cornfields. The academics are behind other schools nearby and they barely prepare you for life. Few teachers seem to actually care about all their student, with most of the teachers showing blatantly obvious favoritism to the sports kids. There are hardly any clubs or activities outside of sports. Kids have been known to bring weapons and drugs to school with little to no punishment.
I love how some teachers, not all unfortunately, but some help a lot and really care about their students and do whatever they can to help. Some of the teachers form bonds with students and are nice instead of favoring the popular kids with certain last names like other teachers do. I was lucky to have teachers like Mrs. Burgren, Mr. Bennett, Mr. Urbanawitz, Mr. Rice, Cheryl Willis, Mel Allen, Ms. Springer, and Mrs. Dreyer. They all personally did their best to help me when it was needed. I could always count on them to help. There is still bullying at the school though, which needs to be fixed.
