Montrose Area Junior/Senior High School Reviews

I have moved to this district during the end of my tenth grade year, and all of y friends went here. I met them through football games, clubs, homecoming dances, etc. All of the students were incredible and very mature and I knew I was going to fit in when I moved into a new town. When I enrolled in school, all of the teachers were super helpful and very pleasant to work with! My best friend at the time explained to my mother that Montrose High School challenged their students and made them work hard for the future either if you were going to college or straight into the working world. Montrose is a very nice school. All of the academics were challenging but manageable if you pushed yourself.

Overall, the school is great. The clubs get very involved within the school and community, and the science, math, and arts departments have a couple of really talented teachers. Like most schools, there's some really great teachers, and some teachers who don't care about their student's success and are just counting down the days to retirement. Still, this is a minority of the teachers. All in all, the good and bad cancel out and give you an average school.
The school overall is average. Most teachers are caring and are interested in students and their success. There are a few teachers who are not interested in students, but overall most of the teachers are interested. The quality of the education is alright, but some math classes and language classes aren't taught well.
