Welcome to The Montair Foundation


The Montair Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to maintain and enhance educational excellence at Montair Elementary School. Through the collaboration of parents, educators, the school's Site Council and the community, the Foundation supports programs and services that are considered important to the development of the whole child but are not provided for by the state. Science, music, art, drama, technology, math and reading intervention are among the expanded resources we support. 

It is our vision that at Montair each child reaches his or her full potential intellectually, socially, and emotionally through a well balanced education
