Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The Montini Class of 2020 is a memorable group that will leave our school community a better one than when they arrived. They set meaningful goals during their freshman retreat and have surpassed those goals. The members of the Class of 2020, though unique individuals, have done a remarkable job uniting as a family!
