Horrible academics. Old staff. Atrocious physical eduaction program led by the Infamous loud abonoxious bad mouthed Edward Sotto Martin. He has a horrible mouth and also has numerous complaints against him and the administration fails to to respond to any of them. He uses very vulgar and inappropriate language and as evidenced by is use of language sometimes believes he is a sailor. Maybe it is his bald head he may think he is popeye. Either way it is wrong. He also been known as a pervert who cannot resist take a look at young ladies who walk by his P.E. class. He also does not mind inapropriatly flirting with them,

As a 2010 IB grad, I know that Montgomery High seems great but ultimately dissapoints. Most teachers have very little enthusiasm for their jobs, and not much was done to prepare me for college despite my advanced placement. The IB program is so nitpicky that it's hard to get good grades, which makes it difficult to have a high GPA. There isn't even sports funding for anything but football anymore - trust me, I was captain of the swim team. Student gov//clubs aren't particularly active either, even if you can manage to find a teacher willing to be involved enough to sponser activities. People there don't seem to enjoy their extracurriculars for the most part anyway. (And don't let some of these reviewers fool you, socially the school's very clique-y and inhospitable.) Additionally, I witnessed many incidents of gang-related violence which left me feeling unsafe on campus (and I was not "that kind" of student). If you're looking for a good honors program for your high schooler, send them to Maria Carillo. Don't be fooled by the IB Program, even if it did make up for the lack of extracurriculars and unsafe school environment, it wouldn't be worth it.

I have two girls at thus school and thus us the worst school I have everhad my children attend due to the administration and the lack of supervision on campus of the students. My girls are constantly being harrassed and treated unfairly by administration. I would not recommend this school.

I am a student at MONTY I am going to graduate this year! I think it is an excellent school! The teachers are wonderful they do help in what you need! If you have toooo much homework its because you might be in IB classes! But I know many people who were able to be in IB classes and Varsity sports that did excellent in both. Now they are going to Standford! I think its a great school from diverse backgrounds!

I have been a student at Montgomery Hight Schoo now for 3 years and I think that it's acadmemics are simply awful. Teachers are giving too much busy work and the students are not focusing enough time on learning things. Many teachers are bad at what they teach, and don't help the students, and don't quiz on what they are teaching. There are, of course, some teachers who teach very well. The math department is exceptional. Whereas History and Language (spanish and english are what I am speaking about) are almost a joke. More teaching and learning and less busy work. On the positive side, the school has many good sports programs, clubs, and other extracurricular activities. I would rate this school average, because that is what it deserves, nothing more, nothing less

I'm a student of MHS and I feel that things could be and should be a lot better here. Examples... Teachers never notice the harassment that that takes place, the school puts profit before the health of the students and the quality of the food, etc. Things are just not how they should be at a school.
—Submitted by a student


Posted January 3, 2008

I have two children at MHS and they are having very different experiences at school. They are very differently gifted in their academic ability and have very different needs. For my very average student with minimal interest in academics, the experience has been frustrating as there seems to be no counselling available to explore options and support his efforts as he does want to go to college. For my more academically focused student, taking Honors Courses, the teachers and the environment have been very supportive and directive.

I disagree with the review stating that the school is not academically oriented. Montgomery has the international baccalaureate program, an extremely tough program for gifted students. The school also has excellent band, drama, and choir programs. This school, in addition to the excellent sports program, is excelling all around. Go vikings!

Montgomery is not the worst school as many have seemed to have stated on these reviews, but, Montgomery is a bit more concerned with its varsity sports and fundraising than academic factors which should be taken highly into consideration. The school, also, is not very diverse in terms of ethnic backgrounds. The teachers or more or less helpful with most studies and know what they're talking about. But if you are looking for a school that bases most of its time on academic studies, Montgomery is probably not the one. If your looking for a sports based school, this would probably be your pick.

Ok I was a student at monty and was taken out by my parents becasue of the completely terrible environment that the school had, this school has no clue what so ever of education, just sports (I like ) and fundraising like the other revewee said. Montgomery High School is not a good school in academics and I would not recognize it as a,' well balanced school'.

Montgomery is a good school. It is old and could use some updating, but the classes and most of the teachers are great.

Posted March 15, 2006

Montgomery is a great school, with a diverse base of students and some great extracurricular activities. The Teachers there are just great, many know their field of teaching well and are great fun. Also, the extracurricular department is amazing, with one of the best Drama departments I have ever seen. Overall, this school is one of the best schools, if not the best school, that I have ever seen. (Trust me, I have seen many.)

Montgomery has been a disaster. My son is ranked in the top few percent of the class of 2006, but in four years nothing has been satisfactory. The IB program is poorly run and is used to prop up the reputation of what otherwise would be an extremely dismal school. The principal doesn't have a clue and the students are demoralized. Teachers in general are sloppy and disorganized with a very few exceptions. I don't know how this school compares with others in California, but I do know that this school would have had its entire administration replaced in any other state where I have lived. The two priorities at Montgomery? Varsity sports and fundraising. Forget academics, and if college is a priority, look elsewhere.

Montgomery is a well balanced school that provides excellent academic programs and is fairly economically and racially diverse. It provides ample challenges for the acedemic student. It has fewer options for non-college bound students, but the faculty work hard to meet the needs of all students. The faculty are committed and seem relatively happy. The music and arts programs are respectful. They lose some of the best artists to Santa Rosa (whose specializes in the arts). Overall, I think Montgomery does an excellent job of meeting students needs both academically and socially.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
