It is a great pleasure to serve as the Executive Director and Principal of Montague Charter Academy for the Arts and Sciences. Our first year together was a great success with another year of increased SBAC Testing scores to put us at the top of the best schools in the East San Fernando Valley. Our enrollment soared to 830 during 2018-19 school year and for the first time in 14 years MCA scored all 3 on its yearly oversight report from LAUSD. We are also proud of the fact that we maintained a positive net income budget balance all year while adding key programs that supported our MCA students academically. We look forward to the continued development of our “Arts & Sciences” Program (Art, Music and Science and Computer Lab) and the continued implementation of our 1 to 1 Chrome books initiative in 2nd through 5th grade. We will follow up our 2018-19 I-pads instruction initiative in Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten and 1st Grade and look forward to our new Robotics Program. We are proud to bring to you several facilities improvements this year including but not limited to our new electronic marquee and completely renovated auditorium. We are opening our doors, once gain this year, to establish a genuine partnership with our MCA parents. At MCA we are well aware that a strong home-school relationship is key to student success. Our team looks forward to an amazing 2019-20 school year.
