School Notes

  • Since 1915, it has been Montgomery School's mission to provide each student with an extraordinary education in mind, body, and character. Montgomery School combines a well-rounded, forward-thinking education with traditional values so graduates are not just academically curious and engaged; they also are confident and compassionate individuals who are excited about making a difference in the 21st century global community. Students thrive with individual attention from exceptional, caring teachers. From family-style lunches, where students eat with faculty and staff, to nonsectarian chapels, where the entire School gathers as a community, students feel safe and accepted as they develop the confidence they need for lifelong independence.
  • Montgomery School is a PreK-8 school. The PreK–8 environment is one in which students learn life lessons—physically, intellectually, and socially—at an age-appropriate pace, which is particularly important for pre-adolescents. The PreK–8 setting gives this age group the crucial opportunity to develop their own lifelong identities in a challenging and nurturing environment. By the time students approach their last year on campus, they are confident, articulate, capable leaders who are eager to take the next step in their academic journey. Faculty works extensively with students and parents throughout that final year so each student can gain admission to the secondary school that best matches his or her talents and needs. Montgomery School graduates routinely attend top secondary schools and colleges.
  • Visit the campus to see the Montgomery School difference. The classrooms overflow with energy and enthusiasm. The buildings are filled with sunlight. The 60-acre campus, with its fields, streams, nature trails and pond, offers outdoor educational opportunities across all areas of the curriculum. All across the campus—and beyond— students are actively engaged in learning that encourages lifelong curiosity and reflection. Families are an integral part of the close-knit School community. Parents and faculty support one another in an atmosphere of mutual respect to give every student the best possible learning experience. When you enroll your child at Montgomery School, you join a strong community that embraces the same educational values that you do.
