I have worked at Montague Elementary for over 20 years now and I must say that this is a great little school. Our new principal is a wonderful leader; she is FUN, FIRM, and FAIR. Rose McIntyre brings a breath of fresh air to the school, along with the entire teaching staff and support staff. If you have children entering school, please come and check this little gem out. As a parent and grandparent, I would whole-heartedly recommend Montague Elementary School.

Our school has a new principal, Rose McIntyre, and it is such a great little school that focuses on standards-based education and all teachers receive ongoing professional development in their subject areas. I teach middle school math and science and I love my colleagues and students. We can really give our students individual attention and are able to do more field trips because we are small. This will be my 3rd year there and I look forward to going back to school each year. I love my school! - Mrs. Hall

This used to ba a great school, the staff was well trained, they cared about the students and the atmosphere was friendly. The children had a lot of school spirit. There were some discipline problems, but nothing to bad. In the last 3 years the school has steadily gone downhill. The staff seem to be walking around afraid of doing anything to upset the principal, who is odd to say the least. Lately the staff that has been there for years seem to be leaving for unknown reasons.The students talk of drinking on the job, sheriffs being called, hiting of children, and all types of crazy things. I am glad my children are no longer there.

I have 2 kids in MES and couldn't be happier with the the way the school is run by Principal Gretta Brown. It is unfortunate that some of the parents don't understand the need and the benefit of some of the more recently implemented rules, but as a parent I completely support the approach Mrs. Brown has taken toward the leadership of the school. I also credit the teachers and staff for genuinely caring about the success and well being of the students and the apperance and atmosphere of the campus. Excellent job, keep up the good work.

My son attends school here and with the small class sizes receives a lot of personal attention. Their math, computer and reading programs are phenomenal and above and beyond the other local schools. The staff is friendly and willing to listen to the parents and this school really strives to better itself on a daily basis. They are even offering van/bus transportation now for children outside of the school district. They have some issues with bullying (but what school doesn't) however, when brought up by some of the parents the staff took immediate action not only to help the bullied children but even putting together an anti bullying school meeting. I went to school here as well and it has improved tenfold since. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Our school values each and every student. All students are encouraged to excel in academics and character. We constantly receive compliments from visitors about the quality of our students, staff, and campus. We encourage the public to visit our school to appreciate the atmosphere created here. --Mrs. McKay

I love my school! I think our staff is caring, and concerned about the safety of every student. Our middle school is excellent and I wouldn't want to work anywhere else. Mrs. Graces

There is no teacher/parent communication, no progress reports, no staff/parent communication. Some of the teachers seem nice, but I would not really know. Another teacher is cold, unavailable to student or parent. Check this one carefully before enrollment, and research all options.

Our children have been here since Jan. 2003 and we are very pleased with the education they are getting. The teachers care and do a good job. Our children have been on the A honor roll since being here and they work hard as do the teachers.
