Caring & Nurturing Environment

Montcrest is known for the caring and nurturing environment we provide our students.

Montcrest follows the Third Path, a relationship-based approach to student well-being and achievement developed by Dr. David Tranter, Lori Carson, and Tom Boland. Following the Third Path means focusing on the student-educator relationship first. Caring, intentional and responsive relationships are at the heart of learning and growth. This approach leads to understanding each student, and truly knowing their strengths, struggles, and needs. Strong teacher-student relationships support both academic achievement and student well-being.

By developing strong relationships within our caring and nurturing environment, we are able to support our students’ social-emotional learning, character development and wellness.
