Montego Bay High School - "ESE NON VIDERI"- To Be And Not To Seem




Montego Bay High School is not only one of the two all-girls secondary school in Montego Bay, it is THE high school of Montego Bay - and St. James, in general, boasting some of the best CXC/CSEC exam results both in St. James & Jamaica!

As a top performing high school, it is also awarded some of the brightest young minds from the primary schools on a yearly basis.

There are number of notable and outstanding Jamaican who passed through this noble institution. This include Jamaica's chief justice, Zaila McCalla.

The school was established in 1935 by the Government of Jamaica to fill the need of an all-girls high school in St. James. It was the first government owned high school for girls established on the island. It was established with the aim of developing in its students, mental alertness, physical health, spiritual consciousness and a sense of responsibility.

Today, they not only excel academically, but also seeks to enhance the talents of the their students through participation in the arts, including the JCDC music and speech festivals. They are also heavily involved in 4H club and debating club competitions.

My smaller sister, Tanya Marie Gayle, is a proud student of this noble institution By the way, I am a proud Manning's student:-)

Last November (2010), the school had an exciting week of activities, celebrating their 75th anniversary year of scholastic excellence.

Mobay High, as it is also called, is located at 51 union Street here in the second city. It's contact numbers are 876-952-2574, 876-952-2809.

best school ever
by: Anonymous

My five years at the Montego bay High School for Girls was the best time of my life and I know that I will always remember and treasure those days.

Its amazing how five years just pass us by, I mean it feels like just yesterday that I entered the gates of Montego bay High School.

This school has tried its best to teach us the fundamentals we need to know in order to enter the very big world that awaits us. they say it only when you lose something you realize how much it means to you and i can definitely say that this is true. When I was at Montego bay High School sometimes I really could not wait to leave but now that I have finally left I feel like there is a void in my life that no other school will ever fill.

Persons may say they can't wait to leave high school but I want them to know that high school is supposed to be the best years of their life's and they should not waste their time at school because time wasted can never be regained.

A Great School
by: A.L.

After graduating from Montego Bay High School, I went on to Shortwood Teachers college, Mcgill University and then University of Calgary.

I got married and have two children. Now, I am retired.

May God continue to bless that great institution which has laid the foundation for my success.

I experienced a well-rounded education. In my time,they had a great athletic programme - swimming,tennis,track and field, basket ball - under Miss Riley.

A great Alma Mater. Go Mo. Bay! Go!

Truly number 1
by: Sherika

The Montego Bay High School for girls is truly the top high school in St. James and is a regular feature on national top-ten lists. I really enjoyed my 5 years here. It was a great experience for me as I was a member of the debating team, speech choir, woodwind band and several clubs. The only aspect of the school that needs work is Sports. We are truly book smart but athletically handicapped lol. Anyway, Esse Non Videri!

Proud of MoBay High
by: Anonymous

I attended MoBay High School between 1966 and 1970. Mrs Graham was the then Headmistress, Mrs Mckenzie taught me Maths.
It's good to see students in the same uniform and I am proud of what this school continues to do.
