On behalf of the faculty and staff of Monrovia High School, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our students and their families. We are proud to be part of a community filled with rich traditions and one that places a high value on exceptional educational experiences for all students. I am confident that you will find that the opportunities available to our students will adequately prepare them for their future, whatever that may hold.
Thanks to the fiscal responsibility of our district, we are extremely fortunate to have a wide variety of academic and elective courses available to our students. While many communities are cutting course offerings due to the financial strain on public schools, our students continue to have wonderful opportunities available.
I would encourage you to involve yourself in athletics, fine and performing arts or any of the many clubs or service organizations available at Monrovia High School. Research is clear that those students who immerse themselves in the extracurricular offerings of the school are more likely to be successful in their classes and in their lives after high school. The leadership opportunities and teamwork skills learned in those activities will benefit you for the rest of your life.
Parents, I would like to challenge you to stay active in your student’s school life, even in the face of their attempts to distance themselves from you as they grow and mature into responsible young adults. Utilize the Family Access portion of Skyward to stay up with your student’s homework assignments and academic progress. Work with us to ensure that your student is completing all of their coursework in every class. It truly takes a partnership between the school and the home to ensure success for each student.
