Monarch K-8 is such a wonderful school. I have been attending the school since 2009 and though I have now left the school, I still think this school is amazing! The teachers were the best. They taught me so much so well. They made learning fun, a reason to want to come back to school the next day. If you ever needed help with school work you could just come in before or after school or even during recess or lunch and she/he would help. The other extracurricular activities were so much fun. Music was cool because you are able to use instruments you probably wouldn't use outside of class. And when you get to 5th grade and up you get to play instruments in band and orchestra. Being in band wasn't really for me, but it was such a cool experience. P.E. was definitely the best. Each week you work on something new. And have a fun week every once in a while. Art was so fun and educational because same like P.E., there's a new thing every week and working with clay is the best! We would also do some pieces of art based on certain artists. And of course, library. Library is cool because you get the freedom to choose a certain amount of books based on your grade, and choose anything you want. (As long as it's age friendly.) This school I will really miss, but at least I got a chance to go there. And I know, this comment is long. But, if you made it this far, I can tell you this, your child will love this school. And I mean LOVE.
