School was good at one time, but currently admin has run it into the ground. Big turnover of teachers and large number of students go to other schools using choice program. Students may be forced back into a NY state urban school for high school and perhaps middle school. Beware those with children wishing to purchase Montague homes. You need to look for a more stable district. Lots of issues here.
