MONTVILLE TOWNSHIP SCHOOL DISTRICT NAMED A "DISTRICT OF DISTINCTION"
District Administration magazine named Montville Township Public Schools a District of Distinction in the July 2015 issue. The Montville district has been chosen for this national honor due to its innovative Humanities Research Program.
Developed at Montville Township High School (MTHS) to engage all students, at all academic levels, the Humanities Research Program is designed to advance, for all students, the higher level thinking skills that are often expected only of students in honors or AP level classes.
