About Montabella Community Schools
Montabella Community Schools is located in mid-Michigan. The district’s boundaries include portions of three different counties: Montcalm, Isabella, and Mecosta. The school district covers 150 square miles, which then requires about 1200 miles of transportation per day with the majority of the students being transported. We are able to accomplish this efficiently and limit a bus ride to an hour or less for every student.
