Two children attend MCPS: William in 8th grade and Alexandra in 6th grade. Nate was born in Wisconsin, Michelle was born in Illinois, Will was born in Maryland & Aly was born in Alabama! As a family we’ve lived in 9 different houses in 7 locations.
This is our second time living in the River Region, but Will & Aly weren’t school age when we lived here previously. When we found out that we were moving back we remembered the wonderful reputation that Montgomery Catholic had. As we did our research and talked to people that we knew in the local area, everyone had terrific things to say about the school, the staff, and the educational program at Catholic.
When we selected Montgomery Catholic, we were stationed in Europe and unable to travel due to the COVID international travel restrictions so we were nervous but hopeful because of all of the great things that we had heard. Ever since we’ve arrived, we’ve been extremely pleased with the decision we made. The welcoming atmosphere was noticeable immediately. The school is organized and communicates in a timely and comprehensive manner. Our kids have benefited from the high quality of classroom instruction as well as the diversity of extra curricular activities offered by the school.
We love how welcoming and friendly the school staff and teachers and other families have been.
