Montezuma-Cortez School District No. RE-1 Reviews
Montezuma Cortez Highschool is a small place, but a great place to learn in. It offers exactly what I want to learn. My freshman year I took a CERT class and became certified in CPR. My sophomore year I took a EMR class. When I started my junior year , college classes started coming into play. I took CNA through a college and became a certified nursing assistant. This year, my senior year, I am taking phlebotomy as a college class and will soon take my state test for phlebotomy. Not only have I taken college classes to help with the career I’m interested in but I have also taken my English classes as college classes. Another benefit of my highschool is that I can start taking online college classes through the community college I would like to attend, then soon transfer to that community college! This high school offers many college classes that will help benefit my future.
Montezuma Cortez High School was the best high school that I could have gone to. They have excellent teachers and staff. If there was an issue, staff or teachers would take care of it the best way possible. Everyone was friendly and caring. Students could tell that the teachers really cared about our education. The new high school we have here in Cortez is amazing. Top quality for our town! Future students are lucky to have such a great facility and staff to learn from.
The teachers work hard with what they are given. Many students are from low income families. I would like to see the gifted program increase. There are not many opportunities for gifted children especially in the elementary level. Things like chess clubs, robotics, science fairs, would really help our youngest students.
