Welcome to Montgomery's Middle School!
Our school year is divided into three academic trimesters with seven classes that meet Monday through Friday from 8:20 AM to 4:15 PM in a six-day rotating schedule.
Our students begin and end each day with an advisor period. On Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings the advisor period is scheduled for 30 minutes. On Tuesday and Friday mornings advisor meets for ten minutes followed by our 30-minute Chapel
program. Each afternoon advisor meets for 20 minutes.
Our Middle School community, grades 6 –8, takes full advantage of our beautiful sixty-acre campus and magnificent facilities, moving from building to building for their classes, competing on our well-manicured athletic fields and enjoying a delicious family style lunch in our beautiful dining room.
knows each child well and incorporates different methods of instruction and assessments to address individual student abilities. Our rich, student-centered curriculum
is designed with the understanding that our students will need not only a mastery of content but a well developed set of skills. If you were to tour our campus and look in on our classes you might find students in one class working collaboratively, using the technology
of Smartboards and web 2.0 tools to investigate and present information. In another class, the students might be applying their critical thinking skills to understand and appreciate different cultures in ways that support our Cultural Enrichment Vision
Our academic program is further enriched by a wide variety of opportunities for students to experience and lead. These opportunities are presented in two categories, required and elective. As part of our academic program, our students are expected to compete in our Interscholastic Athletic Program
and participate in our Environmental Initiative
and service learning as part of their curriculum. They are also expected to participate on day trips to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. as well as well as our sixth grade trip to Echo Hill in Maryland, our seventh grade trip to Florida, and our eighth grade trip to Montreal and Quebec City, Canada.
Giving Middle School students some control of their educational program is essential in the development of their independence. Our students can elect to run for leadership positions in the Student Government or the Athletic Association. They may choose to sing in our Concert Choir
or to participate in our Winter Musical. All students must also take Required Enrichment
classes which vary by grade.
All aspects of the Middle School experience are intentionally structured to provide students with confidence, values, habits, skills and knowledge to succeed.
