Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at will result in a donation to Boosters.

Why should I support Boosters?  Boosters supports EVERY student at Marriotts Ridge through our annual budget.  So far this year, Boosters has provided SGA Homecoming support, wrestling mats, Band expenses and Science Olympiad support. And we are just getting started!

Gifted & Talented Program

Information Night

December 9, 2019 at 7:00PM

MRHS Media Center


Among the colleges that some of our GT Research graduates have attended in recent years are: Princeton, MIT, Univ. of Penn., Duke Univ., Johns Hopkins, UMCP Honors Program, UVA, USAF Academy, Northwestern U., Michigan, Wake Forest, and Tufts U., to name a few. Would your child be interested in that type of a college?


Would your child be interested in a Mentor class where they would have the opportunity to do college level research?


Would it be helpful to your child to have a portfolio of original research and a recommendation from a professional to show to college admissions officers?


Would an Independent Research class where scholarly research is done in conjunction with an adviser in that field benefit your student?


Would it benefit your child to have a class where they choose their area of study so they can go beyond what a normal or even an AP class can offer them?


Does a Mentor class where your student would work on-site with a professional in their chosen field of study sound like something your student would enjoy?

If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, please attend the G/T Information Night on December 9 at 7pm at the Marriotts Ridge HS Media Center to learn more about the G/T Research program at our school.

If you have any questions regarding the evening’s events, please contact Mr. Eckert, the MRHS G/T Resource teacher, at
