Principal's Message

Mr. Cho
Dear Montclair High School Families,

We are approaching the end of the school year! The fourth and final quarter involves a lot of important events and activities that will keep us busy. We have made it to this point and our students have successfully navigated through these challenging times. We ask that they continue to push through and to do their best in all their academics and extracurricular obligations. We have faith in our Cavaliers!

Springtime brings up the important annual statewide assessments. Students who are designated as English Learners will take the ELPAC (English Language Proficiency Assessments for California), 11th graders will take the CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress), and 12th graders will take the CAST (California Science Test). Finally, students enrolled in AP classes will be taking the AP Exams beginning in May. The hard work they have put in throughout the year and the strong instruction they have received in the classrooms will be reflected in these meaningful academic measures.

Here are the dates:
ELPAC (EL students)   March 20 and April 3 - 7, 2023

CAST (12th Grade)   April 4 - 6, 2023

CAASPP (11th Grade)  April 4 - 21, 2023
AP Exams (10th - 12th Grade) May 1 - 12, 2023.

There are also happenings taking place outside of academics that we would like to highlight. Spring sports are underway, and our Track and Field, Swim, Softball, Baseball, Golf, Boys Tennis, and Boys Volleyball teams are competing hard in their respective areas. Our Drama production of Cinderella (March 17, 18, 22, 23) promises to be a great show. Prom is also on the horizon (April 15), with our ASB planning for this great event. As always, we encourage our students to prioritize their time so that they can strike a strong balance between academics and extracurricular activities. Our teachers are here to provide support, and our MAST Tutoring, CAP Saturday school, and Paper online tutoring are available for our students as well. 

Go, Cavs!
