Montgomery Intermediate School (MIS) was the ONLY 5th grade campus in Montgomery ISD. At MIS, EVERY 5th grader is our SPECIALTY.
MIS prides itself on celebrating academic growth, civic-minded actions, and good character. Bear Brigade celebrates high levels of academic achievement. Golden Tickets are awarded for display excellent behavior, character, or improvement in these areas. MIS staff members recognize the importance of celebrating academic or behavioral growth, even small amounts of progress toward student goals. Individuals or entire classes are celebrated daily, arriving with the Celebration Stick, and ready to share great things going on at MIS. The staff recognizes that celebrating growth and progress is meaningful to foster motivation, belonging, and a sense of value. Staff recognitions create a supportive environment where all stakeholders are valuable members of the learning community.
Educating the whole child involves creating bridges and partnerships with families and community members. Science Curriculum Night, Meet the Teacher, New Student Breakfasts, and a Veterans Day program are just a few examples. Parents and community members anticipate these annual traditions.
We put an emphasis on personalized learning for each child. Through our district aligned curriculum, instruction is efficient and focused. PLC's transformed the staff so students were supported by all. Weekly school-wide enrichment time, based on student choice and interest, is an opportunity for real-world discovery and application that extends beyond the curriculum. Products created by students during this time are showcased to the community.
We "reach each child, each day, in the way they learn best."
