A school of character that gratudates young women leaders. No other place I want my daughters. The academic rigor requires study skills that are transferable to life after Montrose. Add in very competitive sports and supportive facility and staff and you have a gem of a school. We are lucky to have our girls at Montrose.

This was an awful school. Moms are teachers, the administration is money hungry and tuition and gifts are their primary focus. They ride on a reputation from Boston Mag 5 years ago.

Although this is a small school, it offers a huge experience. My daughters (one graduate; one current student) are very different from each other. Each different need has been met in the manner in which they needed -- rather than as a cookie-cutter approach. The advising program is OUTSTANDING. The way the school values parental input is terrific. My daughters have learned to think for themselves, articulate a cogent argument and reason through any issue. I wish the science curriculum was a little stronger, but I've seen improvement in this area. The intimate size makes it very difficult to hide or get lost in the shuffle, but the girls never feel like they're under a microscope. A terrific little gem!

As a proud parent of a present Montrosian, I am happy to share with you what a wonderful job the faculty does with the students. The principal is a great role model for the girls. My daughter is thriving academically, takes an active role in the athletics as well as participating in the drama programs. Each girl is unique in their own way and leadership qualities are fostered individually. Most importantly, the girls treat each other with respect and are proud of their parents.

Exiting Seniors say it all. More than a school, Montrose enables growth in individuals. Federal recognition for building character. The students are of course challenged but to see them, they're happy, confident, impressive. No school is perfect, but Montrose is unique, and pretty close. Just ask an alum.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
