About Richard Montgomery High School
250 Richard Montgomery Drive
Rockville MD 20852
Named after an American General, Richard Montgomery High School was founded in 1892 and is the oldest public high school in Montgomery County. The Board of Education purchased land at the corner of Montgomery Avenue and Monroe Street in 1904, and construction of a new school was completed in 1905. However, a fire destroyed that school in 1940. Students were forced to attend other schools until the construction at 250 Richard Montgomery Drive was completed in 1942. Since then, the school has continued to expand and flourish.
It’s no wonder that parents want to enroll their children in Richard Montgomery High School, as some of the alumni include Presidential Scholars, national essay winners, and Intel Science Talent Search finalists. Along with notable academic alumni, Richard Montgomery High School has produced famous singers, actors, and pro-sports players and Olympians.
