    My children have went to other schools and I have to say this school is by far the best. The teachers and all the office staff are so friendly. It really has a warm welcoming atmosphere for the children. It is safe clean and an ideal learning environment. I highly recommend Monterey Park.

    As a parent its very important to place your children in an enviroment that encourages each one to do their best that they can.MPS focuses on just that. I was very impressed with the overall academics.Mrs Banks the principal is a wonderful example of what a great leader and a friend is to the students. She is very caring and is always stopping and saying hello to everyone.For 1st grade teachers the best is Mrs Bankston and Ms. Schumaker. They both took on our boyz like they were theirs and helped to make them grow.
