Spring 2020 was an historic era for Montrose. After closing on March 12, five days later we launched Mavericks Connect distance learning. Thanks to our strong faculty, motivated students and close collaboration with parents, teaching and learning continued at the highest level through the end of the school year. 
All parent Town Meetings, academic schedules, updates and resources are accessible in myMontrose.

We've all realized that this whole experience will only bring us closer together as a school community in the end.
