Montbello Community Building Resources

We have 9 community partners that reside with us in our building, offering wrap-around services to both Academy 360 families and the greater Montbello neighborhood, which is changing the narrative of how a school can serve its community.

Academy 360 is a founding member of the Montbello Community Building.  Partners seeks to build neighborhood relationships through education and community programming to meet the needs of children and their families in the Montbello and Far Northeast communities – truly offering a wraparound services approach.
