Parent's Guide

Montgomery Public Schools is one of the largest systems in the state with 4,200 teachers, administrators, and support professionals serving around 30,000 students. Our job is to help your child excel in school and acquire the tools he or she needs for success in life.

Parents are an important part of the education process. You are your child's first teacher and many of the lessons they need for success in life come from you.

Stay involved in your child's education as he or she advances through the grades. Make sure homework is complete. Ask questions about what they are learning in school and look for opportunities to reinforce those lessons with practical examples of how they are applied in the world outside of the classroom.

The Montgomery Public School System is divided into separate sections with responsibility over different aspects of school operations. When you have a question it is always best to start with the source closest to the subject. For example, if you need information about your child's progress in a specific area, contact his or her teacher. If they aren't able to answer your question, you should contact the principal of the school. If you still have questions, please contact the department below that oversees that area.
