I am continually researching and reading as much as I can to stay current on emerging educational trends. The educational journey through Montgomery allows students to gain the skills they will need to be successful in secondary school, college and throughout their adult life.
Letters from the Head of School
It has been a joyful first three months of the 2017-18 school year! Watching our students engage in STEAM challenges a few weeks ago, and perform with the Young Americans last month, reminds me of the opportunities our students have to stretch their limits within our curriculum and co-curricular program. The conversations with alumni at our Thanksgiving reception reinforces the impact of a Montgomery education as students enter high school in our local area. Their Montgomery ties are strong and the foundation formed during their time here launches them well into their high school and college experiences.
As summer quickly winds down, we are rapidly gearing up for the first days of school. The campus is buzzing with energy as we finalize plans for the 2017-2018 school year and we eagerly await the imminent arrival of your children.
I am excited about the upcoming school year as we will formally launch our Strategic Plan which will provide a roadmap for the coming 3-5 years. We will share the plan with you this fall at an All School gathering that will help clarify the bold and exciting direction for Montgomery in the coming years. The faculty have already begun to work on some of the Plan's initiatives, which began in our closing meetings last June.
Everywhere I turned last week, I saw Montgomery School at its best. Whether I was opening a car door to greet children in the morning, listening to our final 8th grade chapel when Tyler Neave spoke eloquently about "choices", watching our students compete with both passion and sportsmanship during Greek and Roman Games, seeing our 8th graders recognized at the annual Lettering Awards Chapel, or listening as students filled Bell Hall with sounds of their beautiful voices during FAME, I have been filled with pride watching children and teachers at their best.
