    so far I'm very happy with this school. My son started kindergarten in August and I love how much he has learned in such a short time. They keep parents up to date with everything. I did not like the after school coach for the kindergarten class I had to remove him from the program. I'm not going to go into details but perhaps kindergartners should be watched with someone that has patience with young children. The pta is doing a great job. I'm enjoying being a parent to a tiger

    It's been better. It has a FABULOUS new music program that is in danger of being cancelled! Some teachers will communicate with you and some cannot be bothered! Almost Zero parental involvement. Same 5 people in the PTA at every event running things so that late loud entitled parents can show up late dressed like they're going to a club not a school and demand special treatment! Can't wait for my kid to get out of this cesspool! 25 more school days..More parents need to get involved or they will soon be paying for public school!

    My daughter has been at Monlux since Kindergarden. She is in the fourth garde magnet program for math science and technology. She loves it! She is challenged and excited about the projects. She loves the science teachers.

    Monlux is NOT a good school. Parking is impossible in the morning and a lot of parents will fight/ curse you for a parking. Principal is not involved at all. She does not take time to get to know the families. Most of the teachers are there because they have to me there and are not genuinely concerned with the students. At one time a concern was brought to the attention of one of the teachers behind your back she commented that you are wasting her precious time. Students does NOT have a place to do their homework in the afternoon. You have to do your homework under the heat of the sun on warm days and if it's raining you get to go inside the room finally but it's lights out and loud DVDs so if you want to do your homework you either rely on the small door opening or you do not do your homework at all. Lastly if you have encountered a problem you almost cannot talk to the principal as the reason is she's busy and if you left a message to call back you will never hear from her. The bridge coordinator will handle the problem by giving you a very general response so you will settle down and forget about everything. The students aren't as nice either.

    I came from the Magnet Program and I would not recommend this school especially if you are not tough. The teachers yelled at the students most of the time or they benched you ( meaning no recess or lunch ) as they think this is the only way to make unruly students listen so if you are one of the better students I feel bad for you as you also get the same punishment. I agree with one of the reviews - each year gets worst and worst. Thank God I'm out of the school. The staff including the principal they are not concerned at all. There are also a mountain of homework for you to do each day because the teachers are not utilizing the time wisely in school.

    My son is in the magnet program and it is an education focused program which makes us glad that we switched from another school for 3rd grade. He is a 5th grader now and I think this program has gotten him ready for the workload that will come with middle school.

    I love the Magnet program at this school! The teachers are amazing the Principal is committed the Magnet Coordinator is inspiring and the PTA President really wants to get things done to improve the school. I'm so glad we transfered here and I look forward to volunteering both for the school and for PTA projects. They have welcomed us warmly and I am happy that my child has been given the chance to attend a school with so much promise.

    My 6 year old is really doing quite well in First Grade and I feel that the curriculum is challenging. Both the teachers Staff and Parents seem to care of these kids and I an hoping that this continues through to 5th grade. The Kinder staff was also quite excellent

    Monlux is a fine school with great teachers. The Newer Principal who transferred from Coldwater Canyon last year is not very attentative to the parents and school teachers needs.

    We transferred from a private school and have been blessed with wonderful teachers and an administration that is interested in providing the best possible educational experience for the students. Monlux has been a great school for both my children and is preparing my oldest for middle shool. Keep up the great work!
