Welcome Lions!

 

We are so excited to be in our beautiful Oak Hills Junior High and start a new era in Montgomery. We are confident it will be filled with success by our students and excitement from our faculty!

 

July 22, 2020 UPDATE:  Due to COVID-19 and limited face-to-face contact, our registration process will look a bit differently this year.  New student registration will be done online whenever possible.  Any in-person requests will be done by appointment only, and only 2 people will be allowed to come.  The counselors will be utilizing an online course selection form to allow students/parents the ability to select their courses remotely.  We are still here for you and welcome any questions via email or phone.  Thank you so much for your understanding.
