“IB in Africa” - Wiltsey Staff and Students Modeling the IB Philosophy

In June 2014, ten Wiltsey staff members demonstrated how to be in action and how to make a difference when they traveled to Providence Children’s Home (PCH) in Kenya, Africa. Providence is a home for forty-six orphan girls, it operates a free community health clinic and has a school for five hundred fifty students, grades K-12. The Wiltsey staff members, along with twenty-five other participants, including spouses and children of the Wiltsey staff, started planning in early October 2013 for this trip. They met regularly to plan and raised $44,000 for their projects. Read more...


For the past two years, the Wiltsey Middle School staff has worked tirelessly to meet the philosophy, aims and objectives of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP).  After sailing through their authorization visit, OMSD proudly announces that Wiltsey Middle School is now an official International Baccalaureate World School!

Wiltsey’s accreditation was approved without any corrections or conditions to their application.  Wiltsey is the second middle school in San Bernardino County to be IB Authorized. Congratulations to the Wiltsey Middle School community, staff, students, and community.

Congratulations to Buena Vista Arts-integrated School

Congratulations to Buena Vista Arts-integrated School for receiving the Title I Academic Achievement Award for the 2013-14 school year.  The Title I Academic Achievement Award is given to schools receiving federal Title I funding.  To receive this distinction, the school must demonstrate that all students are making significant progress toward proficiency on California’s academic content standards.  Additionally, the school’s socioeconomically disadvantage students must have doubled the achievement targets set for them for two consecutive years.  This is no easy task!!  Congratulations to the hardworking staff and students at Buena Vista Arts-integrated School!!!

Technology Planning for Common Core
The new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) describe what students are expected to know and be able to do.  CCSS will require students to use technology to produce writing, analyze data, gather and present information using technology tools.  In preparation for the new standards, OMSD conducted an extensive process for creating a technology plan. This process included many meetings and conversations with various stakeholders such as teachers, administrators, parents,  and consultants. 

As part of the process, several surveys were conducted to gather information in the use of technology in the classrooms.  Click here to view survey results which were provided by OMSD teachers. The survey results were used as part of the planning process with the District Stakeholder Committee. The plan was adopted by the Ontario-Montclair School District Board of Trustees at the regular meeting held on Thursday, July 18, 2013.  Click here to view the Three Year Technology Master Plan.
