I'm so happy that our son got into Spanish Immersion program and this school is so diverse., LOVE it! Teachers and support staffs are Amazing!
My son is in third grade and we have had an fantastic experience at Monroe. Amazing teachers who keep the kids engaged, and incredible leadership by the principal, Ms Steiner. I was very surprised to see the below comment. All of the parents I know at the school love the school and are in awe of our amazing and dynamic principal, who works so hard for all of the kids.
The principle and staff members favor students and label others. The principle over reacts and allows her staff and her "favorite" students to mis treat other children..............
Monroe is proud of its three Academic Programs: * Spanish Two-Way Immersion Program - The Immersion Strands goals are bilingualism and bi-literacy in Spanish and English for students from different language backgrounds while achieving proficiency on state standards. * Cantonese Bilingual Program - The goal is for children from Cantonese speaking households to learn high levels of academic English for the core subjects, while maintaining and enriching their home language of Cantonese. * English Language Development Program - The ELD strand uses English as the sole language of instruction for both English native language speakers and English learners to achieve proficiency on the state adopted curriculum.
Great community of staff, students and parents. My daughter's middle school teachers are impressed on how prepared she was for middle school (particularly her Spanish Immersion classes).
As a grandparent, I am impressed with this school and the learning that goes on here. Great Staff!
Excellent principal, and support staff especially the two secretaries at the front office.
The best parent community, great kids, great teachers, great principal
This school is a fantastically diverse place where kids get a quality education and learn the skills they need for a bright future.
I love that my son gets to participate in the Spanish Immersion program at Monroe. The school has a great community of committed teachers, parents, and a wonderful, dynamic principal.
i gazed in amazement as i saw my child reach the standard she is suposed to be in and sometimes even higher than the standard
What a great school. Great teachers, sunny school always trying to do right by the kids. The teachers are great and I feel lucky that my daughter is going to this great little school. Also, your child is with the same teacher for two years which I think is amazing, the teachers do not need to learn about your child. They just start over and continue the learning process. Plus the school is close to Noe, Bernal, Mission and Portreo. It takes me 7 minutes to get there so dont let the location scare you its easy to get too.
Wonderful teachers, amazing principal, a solid ethic of social justice, and a great sense of community
I think Monroe is a great school. There is a great community and the staff works very hard to help the kids.
Trilingual (English, Spanish, Cantonese) community with lots of heart!
It's an amazingly close knit school that has three different language strands, namely Spanish, Chinese and English.
Warm, truly diverse, authentic community, learning and growing each year.
I am a parent of a 2nd grader and 5th grader at Monroe. I continued to be impressed by the leadership that our principal exemplifies with all members of our school community, which has 3 language strands. Not an easy task! I feel that my children are not only learning a second language, they are learning core academics within environment that genuinely respects diversity.
Faboluos Principal really great teachers! a lot of parent involment!
