“In a time when so many people worry about the future, Montrose provides a solution: An education for girls who will lead in all parts of life through virtue, values, reason, truth, and faith. If only there were more Montroses!”

I'm so grateful to go to a school like Montrose during a time like this. We all know we're in good hands -- our teachers have been so supportive to all of us. Plus, the sisterhood among students is definitely going to keep us all connected and cheerful.
We've all realized that this whole experience will only bring us closer together as a school community in the end.
