Montgomery Blair High School (MBHS) serves the diverse population of Silver Spring, Maryland, in Montgomery County, just outside of Washington, DC. Montgomery Blair High School's precursor was Takoma-Silver Spring High School, founded in 1925. It opened with eighty-six students and five faculty members, including the principal, Mrs. Evalene Beebe. Three years later, the Board of Education decided to expand the school to include a junior high school.
By the mid 1930's, the school was getting large enough that it was determined to split the junior and senior high schools, and a new high school was constructed "miles from anywhere." The high school moved, along with its seal, ring, song, traditions, and colors (red and white) in March 1935. The new school was named after Montgomery Blair, Abraham Lincoln's Postmaster General, lawyer for Dred Scott before the Supreme Court, and former Silver Spring resident.
