    As a parent I did a lot of research of the schools in Union County prior to my little boy to starting. We decided on Monarch Elementary. It was the best decision I ever made. The principal teachers and all the staff are wonderful and my little boy loves it there. We drive past 2 other public elementary schools and 1 private school every morning just to take him to Monarch.

    Just moved to the area and Monarch is an excellent school. Great facilities and my kids were acclimated well. Many people try to get into this school from other districts and there is a reason why. The rating should be higher.

    The principal and teachers make sure that no child gets left behind. Even with budget cuts the school is doing all that it can for the children.
