Our Mission

The Montrose and Olathe School District will ensure that all students have a safe and academically rigorous environment in which to learn.  All students entering into our high schools will graduate with life skills and knowledge required to enter into the workforce, begin a career, attend college or other post-secondary education opportunities of their choice, without remediation.
