As Boulder Valley’s first neighborhood K-8 school, we take pride in our program design. Since our opening, two other schools have patterned their programs after ours! Our strengths span more than nine grades; we are one of only two schools in Boulder Valley housing a K-12 program on the same campus.
Monarch K-8 students understand that safety and community are paramount. Picture administrators greeting students each morning; daily, live television announcements by administrators; constant classroom visits. These personal touches provide a sense of safety, knowledge of a strong, intact community, and prevent discipline issues.
How can you tell our teachers are exemplary? You could look at our test scores—they are impressive. Better yet, come experience the everyday workings of our school. Visit classrooms and witness passion, creativity, dedication, and a strong level of expertise. We evaluate and reevaluate programs and policies, always striving for excellence. Creative scheduling ensures the most efficient and effective use of school day minutes; we tailor our programs to meet everyone’s needs. Parents, students, staff and administration work as a team and utilize different forms of communication to ensure maximum success for all. Our campus allows for acceleration and cross-graded activities K-12; we celebrate achievement through a variety of programs.
Our advisory program (I CARE) is Monarch K-8’s philosophical cornerstone for daily interaction. Integrity, Courage, Altruism, Respect/ Responsibility, and Excellence follow each community member throughout the day. Equal partners in education, students learn to speak out and stand up for what’s right. At Monarch K-8, we empower students and help them grow as leaders.
Walk through our halls, visit our classrooms, read our publications. We’re masters— we’re a “feel good” school. We love working here… learning here… we are a community. Monarch K-8 and Monarch High School weave together the common threads of discipline, academics and community; our students transition from level to level with ease and grace, feeling a continued sense of safety and belonging to a K-12 community.
