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 what is now called MPACT (Montgomery Preparatory Academy Career Technology) for high school students interested in skilled trades where students can earn certification and even college credit.

Throughout the district, there are programs for children with special needs, including a special education center and services for gifted students. There are also early childhood education programs and a host of supplemental education services. Our schools offer stimulating environments led by qualified and dedicated teachers. Simply put, Montgomery Public Schools has one focus...preparing students for life.
