About

Welcome to the Montesano School District teaching and learning section of our website. If you have found yourself here wondering: What does Montesano S.D.  teach my child? or What is my child learning at school? Then you have come to the correct place.    

We believe:

  • With high-quality instruction, every student, regardless of race, class, language, or ability, can succeed. 
  • Instructional quality can only improve if leaders know what good teaching looks like and act on that knowledge.  
  • Every policy, practice, and structure in a district must support excellent instruction.  
  • Improving instruction should be a collaborative, system-wide endeavor
