    I have a child who attends this school. My son is getting smarter by the minute. He's had good teachers for the past three years. Ms. Mack Ms. Delarece and this year Ms. Russell. I give this school five stars.

    I am a coworker at monument and I have 3 kids and a granddaugter and the education there is improving. The principal is excellent and hard on the students about their education for their future. And the same for the teachers to make a effort to go to their workshops on higher education on learning new subjectsin math reading science and behavioral issue.

    The teachers make a valiant effort to teach and engage the children in learning but the parent participation is almost nonexistant.
