Aztec for a Day - Sept. 6, 2017

Parents are invited to join us in the morning for a continental breakfast and learn about the wonderful learning happening at MOH. After a presentation from our principal, parents break up into groups and complete walkthroughs (classroom observations). Than they debrief about what they saw and share their experience. After they are finished they get to observe their student's classes.

Operation GRIT

Operation GRIT is a club AND a mentoring program at MOH. We match 11th and 12th grade mentors with 9th and 10th grade protégés. The one on one match ups meet after school 2-4 times a week for tutoring. Our goal is to help students with their academics, but also to make sure they know they have a community of peers that care about them. GRIT stands for Growth, Resilience, Integrity, and Tenacity which are the 4 pillars of our mission statement. KEEP IT GRITTY AZTECS!

Scholars & Dragons Club

Scholars and Dragons is designed to promote proactive effort and decisions on behalf of our students, by encouraging them to succeed in academic, extracurricular and professional pursuits by giving them incentives in the game of Dungeons and Dragons. By completing what we call “Life Quests,” such as getting a paycheck from a job, having high grades, being in a membership position of a school organization, or writing a scholarship application, members of the club receive rewards in the game of D&D in the form of special items and/or experience points. Further, in playing D&D, members learn the value of teamwork, cooperation, problem-solving, and personal sacrifice for the greater good.

Mr. Fairbairn is the club advisor


MOH Social Science Club

This club includes students currently enrolled in the following courses: AP Human Geography, AP World History, AP US History or AP Government. It will encourage and provide an academic support network for all AP Social Science students. The club will organize group study sessions (mentors and tutors) in preparation for AP exams and college preparedness (SAT). The club will also develop a social history program to showcase the various cultural perspectives within the community that our Montgomery High serves.

Mr. Pia is the club advisor
