The curriculum is very wide and open to all. My grandchildren say most of the classes are fun and holds there attention well. When you make History fun I feel it is easier for them to learn. The communication the teachers have with the parents is above what is expected. Home work is very important and they have an abundance of homework every night. Sometime I do feel it is a little to much but the kids seem to handle most of it well.
I have found Montford to be a very good school. The math program is especially good. My daughter has been lucky enough to have Mr. Coleman for two years (Algebra and Geometry). Mr. Coleman goes way out of his way to help students. He is available for help and even e-mails assignments home daily. The chorus program is also great.
My daughter came out of a private school, and was behind eveynody else. So I put her in Montford and she is doing great. She has wonderful teachers, exspecially David Rudenborg. David is an awesome teacher who knows what he is talking about. He is always offering math help before school, during class, or whenever he has time. She always comes home with homework and me as a parent I don't even know how to do it, but everynight she sits in her room until she is done with her homework. If she doesn't do a few questions she always is in his room the next morning asking questions. Mr.Rudenborg is the only teacher she actually likes. From the things I have heard from other students " Mr. Rudenborg is like my father at school" .
Montford Middle School is one of the best schools in leon county! I attended Montord and it is wonderful! It is a beautiful campus, and all of the teachers are sooo sweet and understanding. I am have made good friends with one of them, and will remember each and every one of them. Montord is like a private school, and everyone should go to it. I wasn't zoned for Montord, but I am SO glad I went to it because it is a brand new school, and a very dedicated school. Go Mustangs!
Montford Middle is the best, i attend there and I love it. There is no violence compared to the other leon county schools like Nims and Griffin. It's a safe and fun learning enviornment, and thats comming from a student.
