Montgomery Central's mission is to help at-risk students become successful at home, at school, and in the community. The student community is comprised of 50 students in grades 8-12. Students enjoy a more flexible environment because they pledge to accept additional responsibilities and meet high expectations. The students who attend Montgomery Central commit to learning problem-solving, goal setting, and cooperative work skills. Students also commit to improving academic performance and participating in school activities to improve self-confidence. Montgomery Central's low teacher/student ratio, emphasis on personal responsibility, participation in academic and high-adventure field trips, and family-like atmosphere make such growth possible.
