Montgomery Elementary School celebrates and educates a diverse student population with over 10 countries being represented in our school. We value academic excellence, inclusion, community, character, and collaboration. Our students learn best through the sense of community our staff create. Each child's education needs are met through differentiation in academic areas. Montgomery Elementary School offers a continuum of services in special education, gifted education, English as a second language, and intervention services. Our corporate community partners identify Montgomery Elementary School as a destination school for relocating to Cincinnati!

Most importantly we understand students' social and emotional needs must be met to be available for learning. All students participate in our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports and practice our 4 Bs each and every day: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, and Be a Problem Solver.

Our families take pride in being active participants in their child's education. They are true partners in their child's learning. Our Parent Teacher Organization supports our school financially as well as with volunteer activities. Montgomery Elementary School is overwhelmed with a wealth of volunteers. Parents volunteer to support teachers as room parents, to organize after-school enrichment activities, and evening activities such as: math night, literacy night, and international night. Strong family and school partnerships are an integral part of our success!

Montgomery Elementary School continually examines where we can grow and learn to best educate our students and support our families and staff.
