Hands On Learning = Fun

Montgomery School faculty create an engaging program of hands on learning for their students. Students might find themselves participating in laboratory experiments at all levels of science, or participate in an archeological dig in 5th grade, or pretend to be historical figures in 8th grade social studies. Students participate in a Montgomery Math Bowl in Middle School, or run an actual court trial in 4th grade. Students also put on boots to visit the creek that runs through campus, or to plant in the organic garden. Whatever the topic, students love to participate and learn!
