The District serves students in the town of Monticello and surrounding areas. The District has four buildings within the city limits:
- Shannon Elementary (Grades PreK-1st)
- Carpenter Elementary (Grades 2-4)
- Monticello Middle School (Grades 5-8)
- Monticello High School (Grades 9-12)
At the elementary schools we have a before and after-school child care program and a summer child care program called Panther Academy for school age children. For more information on Panther Academy please visit their page or call Panther Academy Director, Tammy Helgens at 465-3000, option 5, or email email@example.com
The Monticello Middle School building opened in 2020 and it is an incredible learning environment for our students. The middle school is also the transfer point for all of our buses from the elementary schools and the pick-up/drop-off point for all students that ride a school bus at the middle school or high school. In addition to running routes outside of town, our school buses also drop-off/pick-up in four locations around town. At the public library (in the back), Shannon Elementary, Carpenter Elementary, and at Sacred Heart Elementary.
In addition to our academic programs, Monticello High School offers a variety of extracurricular activities for our students. Some activities include sports, speech, drama, band, choir, student council, interact club, FFA, etc.. In addition to a challenging curriculum, our high school students also have the opportunity to participate in classes offered through Kirkwood Community College, at the Jones Regional Education Center in Monticello. Students can attend Kirkwood classes to get training in a career related area or complete college courses that can be transferred to a university after graduation.
Our school district also offers additional programming for special needs students after completing high school. The Monticello Transition Center programming is designed for students entitled to Special Education services and have incomplete living skills, work skills, and communication skills. A referral and application process is necessary for entrance into this program. If you have any questions regarding the Monticello Transition Center please contact Cindy Melchert, Transition Center Teacher at 319-465-3052.
