Montrose Christian School is a K-12 private school in Rockville, Marylandmarker, operated by the Montrose Baptist Church, Maryland's second largest Southern Baptist church. It educates around 370 students.

Controversies

School Firings

The school was embroiled in a lawsuit, in February 1997, involving three employees, represented by the ACLU, who said they were fired for not belonging to the school's parent church. While a judge initially ruled in the favor of the dismissed employees, the decision was later overturned on appeal in 2001 based on the argument that "'for a religious corporation, association, or society to hire and employ employees of a particular religion,' is severable and valid." .

Ray Hope's Resignation

Reverend Ray Hope, a.k.a. Dr. Otis Ray Hope , senior pastor at the Montrose Baptist Church, resigned in October 2002 after questioning by the church's governing council about his involvement with the Maryland International Students Association, an organization that recruited foreign students attending Montrose Christian School.

Officials for the school's parent church alleged that the recruiting organization has failed to reimburse the school for the cost of the students' education; that Rev. Ray Hope owed the church's school more than $580,000.

Athletics

The school has been recognized for its athletic accomplishments, particularly for those of its basketball team, which has been successful at recruiting players across the United States and around the world to play in Rockville. Kevin Durant's transfer to the school led USA Today to name Montrose its preseason pick for the top spot on its Super 25 rankings of the top high school basketball teams in 2005-06.

The school has appeared regularly on USA Todays Super 25 national rankings, finishing the season ranked 25th in 2000-01, 9th in 2002-03, 19th in 2003-04, 19th in 2005-06 and 22nd in 2006-07.
