Our Parent Participation Policy

At Monarch Community School families and staff participate together in the developmentally appropriate educational process, empowering them to be able to enjoy the "whole child" learning approach where academic, social, physical and emotional growth are equally important, interrelated and acknowledged. Please read Monarch Community School's Long Range Plan.
