Founded as a boys' preparatory school in Wynnewood by Rev. Gibson Bell, this school graduated its last senior class in 1938. In 1943, the school was reorganized as a coeducational elementary and middle school. A decline in middle-school-aged children in the 1980s resulted in Montgomery's relocation to Chester Springs in the summer of 1988. The school's varied curriculum prepares students for competitive area independent and public high schools. A full-day prekindergarten program provides problem-solving, communicational and life skills training beginning at age 4. Later in the lower school grades, Montgomery supplements course work in the traditional elementary subjects with computer education and an introduction to foreign languages. The lower school music curriculum includes enriching field trips, special assembly programs and study, and children learn more about the visual arts through excursions to local museums and art shows. In the middle school (grades 6-8), instruction in all subject areas becomes more in-depth to help students prepare for advanced high school courses. The arts programs at this level emphasize appreciation and participation in music, art and drama. Interscholastic sports begin in the middle school.
