At MGM, I have discovered so much about myself. My freshman year I was not planning to stay because I wanted to attend the Alabama School for Math and Science, but MGM changed my mind. I absolutely love the band and the students in the school. It has been the greatest 4 years of my life and I will never ever take that for granted. I want to thank all the staff and students for making MGM the best possible school I could have ever attended in my entire life. MGM has set me on a path for greatness and I will make the most of it. Thank you MGM!

My high school experience at Mary G. Montgomery High school was excellent! I was involved in numerous activities as well as on honor roll. I was on the Golf team as well as MGM's Marching Band Colorguard. I was on the SWAT Team, Students Working Against Tobacco, and was the treasurer for it. I was also on the Student Council as Secretary. I was the Visual Ensembles Uniform Captain and the Robotics Club President.
As a senior at Mary G Montgomery high school I’ve had many memorable experiences. Being involved in numerous activities and clubs has allowed me to meet new people and expand my horizons throughout high school. The teachers and staff have always been positive and motivating towards me. Academics and extracurricular activities are very present at Mary G Montgomery high school. There are clubs and organizations for all different types of people. My school has many positive things going on, however, I feel as though there needs to be better lunch, and a new coaching staff for football. With these few changes Mary G Montgomery high school, in my opinion, would be the best high school in Mobile, Alabama.
