What an amazing school. Monarch offers my grandson a warm, friendly environment with strong academics. Without Monarch, he would be just another number in public school and would fail. God Bless all the teachers of Monarch.

When my daughter was in public school she was bullied to the point that I was there everyday at the same time.. I check into The Monarch school and I knew it was the best option.. From the staff, teachers and students.. I wish I would've have put her there sooner. The school has helped so much and she loves going there.. I never worry about bullying.. It is a great school.. They do great things for all the kids.. I am so thankful I found it.. This year she is a senior and it's good but I am sad also.. I tell everyone I know about the school in hopes that they get more students which they have grown since my daughter was 13 yrs. old she is now 18..

Need to enlist a friend or two with stuff like "I was supposed to tour the campus with the director, but she canceled on me twice. I finally went with the Dean, but he rushed me through. The kids in the computer lab told me they didn't have Internet and I saw kids in the program I wanted for my son sitting in a 'bedroom' singing along with the radio-this is teaching?"

This school is a godsend. The teachers aren't just collecting a paycheck, they actually care for the students. They know all of them by name, know the parents, and its like they are a part of your family. My son hated school and was bullied daily because he has aspergers, but at Monarch he is accepted and flourishes. This school does everything they can for the kids and families that attend, how many other schools can that be said about? The Monarch School is by far the greatest school, the warmth and care they show everyone that walks on campus is amazing and deserves to be rewarded although they don't do it for the rewards which makes them all the more deserving!

My son goes to The Monarch School and he now likes school and the staff is very understanding of his autism and doesn't make excuses on why he cant do things but makes ways that he CAN do them! The staff goes out of their way to help the kids and give parents information on community functions and programs that can benefit autistic kids. AWESOME school never had an issue with the school not challenging my son academically.

My son is in first grade at Monarch. He has grown so much since last August!! I couldn't be happier with the school and the teachers, who are kind and nurturing! He loves going to school and can't wait for it to start again! I hear about Monarch every day because he wants to go back!! I am so grateful for Monarch teachers and staff!! Happy Mama

I have talked to many people that are dissatisfied with being charged for services by this school that their children are not receiving. We are putting together a petition to present to the Polk County school board for a full investigation.

My daughter not only benefits academically (she is in the Advanced Studies High School Program), but socially she is becoming amazing! The direct instruction of social skills has made such a difference!! We love The Monarch School!!
