Engrade is Montgomery's grading system for Middle School students, which allows parents to log in at any time of day or night and get access to a student's grade page for any class/teacher. Once logged in, you can easily switch among your child's teachers without logging out. The information you will see is in the same format as the mid-trimester comments.
New students will receive their login information at the beginning of the school year. For existing students, it is the same login information as the previous year(s). If you do not remember this password, please use the Lost Password link on the login page. If you are still unable to log in, please contact Mr. Hamilton.

When you click on the link with the invitation code, you will need to click on the blue link that says "register" to create a new account (unless you are using your account credentials from the previous year). You can create as many parent logins with this code as you would like, so it can be used for tutors if you wish to share it with others.

Statement of Parental Support
We expect that parents, as members of the community, understand and endorse the Mission Statement of the School and are committed to abiding by the policies and procedures stated in the Parent/Student Handbook.
We encourage parents to take an active interest in their children’s work and life at School. such as getting to know classmates, teachers, and other parents; engaging in volunteer activities; attending Lower and Middle School parents’ nights and parent conferences; as well as being involved in the Montgomery School Community Association events throughout the year.
We also encourage parents to demonstrate their interest in their children’s education by encouraging their regular and prompt attendance, by asking about their work, and by providing structure and quiet, appropriate places to study. Parents are the most important resource for students. Answering questions, directing students to appropriate learning materials, and providing transportation to libraries can be helpful. However, because teachers need to evaluate students’ work and progress, it is critical that parents encourage independence and refrain from doing students’ assignments. Rather, parents may guide students in their work, suggesting resources and explaining underlying principles. The goal and effect of any assistance should be to enable students to complete their own work.
