Our mission at Montgomery County Public Schools is to engage, encourage, and empower our students, staff, and community.
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Montgomery County offers a range of lifestyles, from bustling towns to rural communities. Virginia Tech and nearby Radford University provide many arts, cultural, STEM, and athletic opportunities, and the universities also attract a large international community. The region has been voted one of the best for raising a family, working in technology, and starting a business.
Montgomery County offers a high quality of life with a low cost of living. One of the region’s strengths is its easy access to outdoor adventure. You can kayak the New River, bike the Huckleberry Trail, swim in Claytor Lake, or hike the Appalachian Trail in just minutes from your doorstep. For more urban pursuits, Roanoke, Charlotte, and Washington D.C. are not far away.
