Students study the history of inventions, including their impacts on society. They learn about the core concepts of technology and the various approaches to solving problems, including engineering design and experimentation.
We are a student-centered community of learners, contributors and designers who grapple joyfully with complex ideas, texts and tasks that prepare students for the greatest success in college, career and life. Every day, our students read, write and engage in academic discourse that is grounded in meaningful questions and relevant problems.
When students leave Monroe Demonstration Academy, they will be better equipped for high school course options, scholarship opportunities, and extracurricular activities that are aligned with their interests and academic/career goals and be making tangible progress towards college and career readiness.
Monroe Demonstration Academy offers our scholars unique opportunities to engage in real world learning.
We believe that fine arts education is essential for the development of the whole child. It provides our students unique experiences that allow them to explore their passions, express themselves creatively, and teach them valuable lessons about self-motivation, dedication, teamwork and communication.
All students deserve the chance to learn how to communicate effectively so they are prepared for college, career, and life. Through our English Language Arts, students develop in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. They learn to make meaning, write clearly and think critically.
Math allows us to make sense of chaos, be musicians, carpenters, mechanics, doctors, engineers, scientists, and more. All students can learn math! Our students study, engage and learn challenging mathematical concepts that will prepare them for college, career, and life.
Every move we make involves decisions that include the application of scientific principles. Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) occupations and fields are experiencing exponential growth leading to rewarding and challenging careers.
Social studies develops students who can make informed decisions and participate as responsible citizens in an increasingly diverse, global society. Students who are well-versed in social studies are able to enhance their knowledge, perspectives, and character to more deeply understand themselves and the world around them.
Twenty-First Century Learning
Learning and innovation skills are what separate students who are prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments in today’s world and those who are not. They include creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, and communication and collaboration.
In addition, Monroe promotes an understanding of academic content at much higher levels by weaving 21st century interdisciplinary themes into core subjects - themes like global awareness, and financial and entrepreneurial literacy, civic literacy, health literacy, and environmental literacy.
