A Great Education in Montgomery County Schools

Montgomery County public schools consistently rank among the highest achieving in the nation. In fact, six Montgomery County High Schools received awards in U.S. News and World Report’s 2010 America’s Best High School rankings, which rate how well schools prepare students for college: Montgomery Blair in Silver Spring, Richard Montgomery in Rockville, Walter Johnson in Bethesda, Thomas S. Wootton in Rockville, Walt Whitman in Bethesda, and Winston Churchill in Potomac.

Montgomery County is known for its aggressive programs to help students achieve advanced proficiency in math, science, and literature. The Washington Post’s Challenge Index, which ranks schools by the proportion of students who take tough Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate courses, picked five of its top 10 area schools from Montgomery County: Richard Montgomery (#2), Poolesville (#5), Bethesda-Chevy Chase (#7), Churchill (#8), and Wootton (#9).

Many schools now offer the International Baccalaureate program such as Bethesda Chevy Chase, Einstein, Sprinbrook, Rockville, Kennedy, Seneca Valley High School, Watkins Mill High School and Richard Montgomery. Other schools offer programs for high achieving students such as the Ulysses Program at Northwest High School and the Advanced Placement Power Scholars Program at Clarksburg High School.

Outstanding schools boost home values

If you are thinking about making a move to Montgomery County MD, there are several tips that our Team would like to share with you. As excellent as Montgomery County schools are overall, some stand out by most measures: Churchill, Whitman, Wootton, Walter Johnson, and Richard Montgomery. As you might expect, the areas feeding those high schools see noticeably stronger home values. Many of the neighborhoods around these schools are in fact quite upscale. Homes in these neighborhoods tend to hold their value better in real estate downturns.

Here’s how to get started

Location, location, location is the magic formula when matching your future Montgomery County home to your child’s future school. You’ll want to figure out the feeder zones for each school and the school assignment of properties you’re considering. Once you’ve determined what areas interest you, check out data about each neighborhood school—elementary, middle, and high. Every school has a two page report that describes its student body demographics, test scores, and teacher qualifications. Visit Schools at a Glance to pull up any of these reports.

The Myers Team can help you evaluate school information as you make your home buying decision. For example, we know about plans for future boundary changes, including ones that affect the Wootton High School cluster. You can also research boundary changes yourself. We have helped clients purchase homes near central bus stop locations for magnet and gifted programs to make the commutes easier on their children. Call us today to get started: 301-910-9910.

Once you have moved to Montgomery County, it’s time to register, assuming your child is the right age (at least five and no more than 21 at the start of the school year), you’ll need to contact your home school and obtain the proper paperwork from them. You’ll also need to be able to document your child’s age, identity, residency, and immunization status.
