About MRIS

Montgomery Ridge Intermediate School is located in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in beautiful Maryville, Tennessee. It is one of two intermediate schools in Maryville City Schools, serving approximately 800 students, grades 4-7.

Our History

In 2000, Maryville Intermediate School opened for all fifth and sixth graders in Maryville City Schools. MIS Explorers were proud to be a part of the MCS community for 12 years! 

In 2010, MCS began investigating the possibility of building an additional school and/or reorganizing the grades of its existing schools. The intermediate program became the centerpiece of the school system's comprehensive grade reconfiguration plan to be implemented in the 2012 school year. 

As a part of this district-wide initiative, MIS was "reopened" and reconfigured as one of two intermediate schools in our district in 2012. 

Our name is inspired by our location on Montgomery Lane and by the beautiful view of the mountains from the ridge on which our school is situated.
