Mary Gillen Montgomery High School is located in Semmes, an incorporated suburb of Mobile in Mobile County, Alabama, United States. Founded in 1965, the school is part of the Mobile County Public School System, and is one of the largest of the county's 18 public high schools. Due to its long official name, the school is affectionately known as "MGM," "Mary G," "Mary Montgomery," or "Montgomery High."

Army JROTC[edit]

The school offers an Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program which emphasizes academics and physical fitness. Program participants compete in rifle and drill competitions.

Enrollment[edit]

In the last ten years, the school's enrollment has increased due to an increase in population of the Mobile area, particularly in its western suburbs. In 1998, the school's enrollment was 1,452. Today, that number has grown to almost 1,900 with a faculty of 100.[citation needed]

MGM draws its students primarily from Semmes Middle School, which is one of the largest middle schools in the state of Alabama. The school serves grades 9-12.

MGM is named after Mary Gillen Montgomery. She was a student, teacher, and administrator in the Mobile County Public School System for 51 years. She was associated with MGM for 39 years.[1]

Facilities include a large football stadium, baseball stadium, gymnasium, field house/athletic center, soccer field, fine arts facilities, and a notable horticulture facility and program.[1]
