  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • My parents and I are thinking of keeping me in eighth grade for another year. I had a heart transplant in the fifth grade and a lot of my closest friends that support me through everything go to Montera. I have heard a lot of wonderful things about this school and one of the complements were that Montera was a well rounded school. Unlike the school that I attend now Montera has more of a variety of the over all learning system and i would much appreciate if you could try and add me in as a student.
