Monroe Elementary school is dedicated to growing and developing the whole child. Our classrooms offer a flexible style learning environment set up to allow for rich collaboration and discussion among students. Students navigate choice and voice throughout the day as they make learning decisions in a comfortable and community driven classroom. We believe in 21st Century Learning. Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity are driving forces in our decision making and instructional planning. We dive deep into content and knowledge as we teach students to probe, question, argue, defend, and prove their own theories while they learn in an authentic way. Monroe is a safe place where children will build and practice social skills, cooperation, resiliency and empathy as grow in their learning community. We make and celebrate mistakes because we know that taking risks and learning from our mistakes is a powerful way to learn.
