  • School Code

  • Monroe is a diverse school located in the Excelsior district that hosts three language programs serving children from many linguistic backgrounds around the city. We offer an English Language Development, a Chinese Bilingual, and a Spanish Immersion program. At Monroe, making social justice a reality means that Monroe is a safe place where students, parents, and teachers are engaged in open, honest discussions about the academic progress and the emotional well-being of our students, as well as our shared vision of success for Monroe's students. Our goal is to provide all students with a well rounded, nurturing, academic education that allows them to be safe and successful at Monroe and in their future academic endeavors. Monroe is focused on providing high quality teaching and learning for historically underserved populations and works hard to ensure academic equity for the various populations enrolled at Monroe Elementary School.

    At Monroe, teachers know their students and base their lessons on students' strengths, needs and interests. They don't just know students' names, but their learning preferences, the knowledge they bring to each task and their families' backgrounds and cultures. We believe that our job is to ensure that all students develop high academic vocabulary and standards based skills, are able to navigate complex social situations and embrace the diversity of their community. We believe that educational success is the collective responsibility of students, teachers, school staff, and families. Monroe students are the students of all staff, not just their classroom teacher. We keep our promises to our community through the variety of committees and cross-cultural opportunities that are open to families.
