Monarch is committed to helping children develop into intelligent, capable young people who can find success in higher education and in life -- who can think critically and analytically, act with integrity and compassion, and become responsible citizens of the world.
During the elementary school years, our integrated curriculum includes Language Arts (Reading-Writing-Phonics), Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Bible. Our active learning environment includes opportunities for learners of all styles to access academic information in a fun, approachable way, encouraging each child to become an independent learner, to develop intellectual curiosity and a joy for learning.
Students experience a balanced school day, including structured academic work periods, adequate developmental play, and a variety of music and art and other enrichment periods such as STEM, PE, and Spanish. The Florida Standards are used as a curriculum framework. We believe that students learn by doing, as well as through traditional academic methods. We build in field trips and other types of hands-on activities that support the curriculum.
Uniforms are a part of our daily dress code. This is not meant to stifle creativity but to decrease classroom distraction.
Our commitment to small class sizes allows many opportunities for supportive relationships that encourage each student to achieve academic and personal success. Social problem-solving skills, such as cooperation and building positive relationships with peers and adults, are emphasized through our Social Bridges program.
