Community ratings & reviews

  • (1 year ago)

    A friendly family-oriented school in Montgomery County within a great community. The class sizes are small and the teachers work hard to provide the best educational experience for our children. It is a great place for children to grow and learn. Numerous after school activities are available through the school and aftercare option. It is in a great location with plenty of fresh air and views of Sugarloaf Mountain from the playground.

    Rigorous academic instruction teachers and staff that are concerned focused and genuinely interested in the education of our children rules and reprecussions for adhering to acceptable standards of behavior nurturing environment assistance and guidance for children who are experiencing difficulty in school and/or home great extra-curricular and after-school activities involved parent community and just a little rural school that makes the difference in the lives of our children every single day!!

    Monocacy is like sending your child to private school! Small class-sizes everyone knows each other and cares about each other. Excellent academics and extra-curricular opportunities! And at the foot of Sugarloaf Mountin in the Ag Reserve -- highly recommend this school!
