A Letter from the Principal
Welcome to Monarch Global Academy! I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve your child as principal at our exciting new school. It will be my privilege to work with a dedicated faculty and staff at Monarch Global Academy to ensure a safe and nurturing school environment for every student. We are committed to providing a quality education for each child in the best possible learning environment.
Monarch Global Academy will promote student success through the Common Core Curriculum which includes rigorous research-based reading and mathematics programs. We are very excited about beginning our journey as a Primary Years Programme school, and embarking this school year as a PYP Candidate School. As part of PYP, students begin to learn about the PYP Learner Profile, which is the International Baccalaureate Mission Statement translated into a set of learning outcomes for the 21st century. The learner profile provides a long-term vision of education. It is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of schools and teachers, uniting them in a common purpose.
IB Learners strive to be: INQUIRERS, KNOWLEDGEABLE, THINKERS, COMMUNICATORS, PRINCIPLED, OPEN-MINDED, CARING, RISK TAKERS, BALANCED and REFLECTIVE.
Our Middle School will open in the school year 2015-2016 and will have an IT (Informational Technology) focus. With this additional emphasis on technology, our students will be prepared to be leaders in our global and technological society. IT instruction focuses on the use of a variety of technologies to access, analyze, interpret, synthesize, apply and communicate information, thus enabling students to become effective problem solvers and decision makers.
The success of our school will also be promoted through the spirit of teamwork established among our staff, students, and parents. Monarch Global Academy welcomes your input and your visits. As you get to know us, you’ll recognize that we put children first when making educational decisions and that our staff members will constantly seek new and innovative ways to make our school an exciting learning experience. We will strive to make Monarch Global Academy a friendly, caring, supportive school where children feel challenged, safe, and cared for by both the school staff and the community.
I invite and welcome your help in establishing a caring and supportive school environment. Monarch Global Academy will have an active PTA where adult volunteers can contribute directly to the success of our school. Students benefit significantly from the active involvement and support of our school community and your strong support will be an important factor in the success of your child and of the entire school.
I look forward to welcoming wonderful students, committed and talented staff and strong parent and community support to create a very special learning experience at Monarch Global Academy.
Donna O’Shea, Principal, Monarch Global Academy
