Black Excellent Plan

At Montbello Career and Technical HS we are deeply committed to providing equitable and culturally relevant instruction, along with social-emotional support to our Black students and families. In conjunction with the “Know Justice Know Peace” initiative in Denver Public Schools, we are also committed to the following: 

  1. We are committed to Proactive Self Reflection 
  2. We are committed to consistently represent ALL voices, identities and perspectives of our students throughout our building, our classrooms and our curriculum.
  3. We are committed to active and intentional listening to perspectives different from our own.
  4. We are committed to empowering student and family voices in our community 
  5. We are committed to disrupt and dismantle white supremacy and oppressive systems by courageously calling out racism and injustice in all forms.
  6. We are committed to being uncomfortable 
  7. We are committed to recognize that our experiences do not represent everyone’s experience, to look through an ever-broadening lens and recognize intersectionality.
  8. We are committed to high standards of education and expectations, in order to prepare all students to excel beyond the classroom.
  9. We are committed to learning and inquiry with the acceptance that this work will always be unfinished.

To support this work we have developed a Black Excellence plan that specifically targets the needs of Black students and their success. We are committed to supporting and increasing attendance for all our Black students, as we know that there is a direct correlation between attendance and academic success. We are committed to providing access to concurrent enrollment college course opportunities through Community College of Denver for our Black students to help prepare them for careers, college and beyond. As a pathway school we provide our students with the opportunities for certification in computer science, automotive, construction, nursing, and culinary arts.We know that for Black students to be successful, thrive, and learn their social emotional wellness has to be supported and celebrated. At Montbello Career and Technical HS  ALL of our Black students have a mentor. We are committed to this work for our young Black males through  our partnership with the  We are committed to a restorative approach that dismantles oppressive and biased systems that directly impact our Black students and families.
