Montana Families Grow Together with Experiential Public School
~Community Open House welcomes students seeking unique public school environment

Bozeman, MT Monforton Public School, located at 6001 Monforton School Road, near the Four Corners area, celebrates the new year by hosting a Community Open House for prospective students and interested community residents from 9 to 10AM and 7 to 8PM on January 20th.

With the motto, "Let's grow together,' Monforton School has a variety of unique programs to enhance a public school education for families seeking a quality rural Montana environment with the feel of a big school education.

At a time of big schools and large class sizes, Monforton offers small, personalized classrooms and a nurturing atmosphere with quality education focused on experiential, hands-on learning. Highly experienced staff with advanced degrees enhance students learning with an individualized approach. Student achievement scores well above statewide and national average attest to this intimate environment. Progressive in advocating for students, there is a full-time counselor on hand. Staff members initiated Montana's first school based health clinic and "Mentors for Monforton,' a school wide program pairing up high school students to younger one's. Active partnerships with MSU, other area schools and non-profit children's organizations strengthen ties within the community. For those seeking a community base for home-schooled children's needs, a flexible program is woven in to provide enrichment in core or elective areas.

"Teachers and staff know the students and families,' says Lynne Scalia, Monforton's Principal. "No one falls through the cracks.' Many agree. "We selected Monforton because we wanted the small class sizes. We really appreciate the individual attention our children receive,' testify Chad and Julie Airhart, parents of school-aged children.

Monforton Public School pioneered as one of the first established K-12 independent schools in Montana. Established in 1883, this nurturing, student-centered community has been growing students and serving families in a safe rural environment west of Bozeman ever since. Monforton does not charge tuition to students. In order to maintain the best atmosphere for learning, all prospective students and families are interviewed as part of the admission process.

On January 20th, come see what's available in education, right here at Four Corners in a community centered school environment, as we grow together!
