|At Montrose, involvement in student activities and clubs is a part of educating the whole person. While academics are essential to Montrose student life, a well rounded education calls for growth outside of the classroom as well. Our students are encouraged to discover and nurture their interests and abilities through a wide range of extra-curriculars, many of which have been initiated by students in both the Middle and Upper Schools. Whether they are editing the yearbook, rehearsing on stage or participating in academic competitions, the girls learn to work together, sharing their gifts and talents with others. |
