Montgomery Public Schools is guided by a students-first philosophy. Our mission is to provide safe and caring communities where teachers teach and students learn at higher levels.
MPS has a variety of academic programs and services to meet the diverse needs and interests of our students. We offer traditional schools with a full range of curriculum complemented by cultural arts, music, foreign languages, technology, career-technical education, and athletic programs.
Seven career academies in our traditional high schools equip students with skills for high-demand careers in advanced manufacturing, health occupations, information technology, culinary arts and hospitality, and business marketing. We have nine magnet schools that cover all grade levels and themes ranging from science, performing arts, technology, accelerated academics to international studies. Plus, in the fall of 2012, MPS opened Montgomery Technical Education Center for high school students interested in skilled trades.
