Starting with the 2021-22 school year, we will begin using ParentSquare to communicate with our Charger families. This system is replacing SchoolMessenger. Notices from the schools will now be delivered via phone, text, email, and the ParentSquare App, which is optional. The app is available in the app store for Android and iPhone. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for the parent/guardian, using the information provided in PowerSchool.
On July 23, parents will receive an activation email with directions for setting up a ParentSquare account. In emergencies or when notifying school families is urgent, ParentSquare will use all methods of contact, which includes a phone call, text, email and app notification (if we have the correct information and if you have downloaded the app). Parents who do create an account can become more actively engaged in communication by appreciating posts, viewing newsletters, receiving important alerts, and managing communication preferences. We encourage parents to download the FREE ParentSquare app.
If you have questions, please contact the school your student attends. We look forward to working with you in the new school year!
Thank you,Michael Cox, Principal
Returning Student Registration (confirm enrollment for next school year) May 17th to June 13th, 2021.
Confirming your student will be returning to a North Montgomery School for the 2021-22 school year is very important! By doing so, we can better determine staffing and transportation needs for the 2021-22 school year. Completing the process also ensures we have accurate information on file in case of an emergency. Also, starting this coming school year, any student who wishes to ride the school bus will need to register for transportation through this process. If you have multiple students in your family, each one must complete the process. If you do not register, you won’t receive transportation for the start of the school year and will have to wait until after school begins to sign up. Those who register will be able to check bus assignments in PowerSchool before school starts.
Please help us by taking a few minutes to complete the confirmation process for each of your children in the PowerSchool Parent Portal at http://powerschool.nm.k12.in.us. If you have questions, please contact the school your child(ren) attend.
**Please Note: This process must be completed on a desktop computer. The PowerSchool mobile app. cannot be used.

Welcome to North Montgomery High School, an A rated school by the Indiana Department of Education. As Principal, I place great value on working in conjunction with students, staff, parents and the community to ensure we uphold the great tradition of the Chargin’ Chargers. The vision which guides us can be summed up in the acronym SAFE, which represents Skills to Achieve Future Excellence. More specifically, SAFE is our commitment to make sure North Montgomery High School is a place where students come first in everything we do. It is a place where a safe learning environment exists and where students acquire the 21st century skills needed to compete on a world stage. It is a place where our students are encouraged to challenge themselves both mentally and physically. Finally, North Montgomery High School is a place where the adults care about kids and make it their mission to prepare our students for life beyond these walls.
