Mary G. Montgomery High School is a great overall school. The teachers and principals really do make their best effort to help students succeed. They are really focused on ACT and helping students in any way to raise their score. They believe in their students. The student life itself is also very good. Football games is where all the students come to rally together and show their support. And not even for just football. At most volleyball and basketball games you will see a student section cheering the team on. Our school took tons of school buses and drove over three hours to support our basketball team! The clubs and activities to join are endless and you are bound to find where you belong there.

I rated Mary G. Montgomery a four because every school has kinks to work out, but our school is heading in a great direction. Our principle is always so glad to be there and is always interacting with the students. He makes sure that everyone is following the rules, we have access to the best learning, and that we have some fun while doing it all. Our teachers deeply care about our success and they are always so nice. Although Mary G. Montgomery has it's rough days too, there's always a way we turn it good.
I love Mary G! It is a great high school with many outstanding teachers who truly care about my wellbeing and my success as a student. I enjoy going to school there, and my peers are all very kind.
