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.
