Principal's Message

Dear Wildcats,

          It is an honor and a privilege to welcome you all to the 2014-15 school-year where we will continue time tested Monrovia traditions and chart new courses for academic successes.  A well established foundation of a full 6 year WASC Accreditation and an increase in our API to 806 creates a fantastic opportunity for our school community to provide excellent opportunities for our students to grow as life-long learners. This year our students will embark on life shaping challenges in the classroom, athletic arenas and creative endeavors in an effort to improve skills in critical thinking, team-work, and collaboration.  Our students continue to prove that they are well prepared for life after high school with 93% of the graduated class of 2014 receiving post secondary education at universities, colleges and trade schools across the nation.  Monrovia High School graduates are prepared for success! This year we will continue to prepare students to excel in their areas of interest as well as to meet the needs in our growing global community.  With the development of essential qualities of critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration and compassion coupled with active community involvement and a focus on change, our Wildcats are poised for excellence. I invite you to join us at some of our many outstanding events scheduled for this year. Come out to see and support our world class athletes, musicians, performers, robot builders, video producers, artists, and scholars while they compete and perform.  We will continue to build upon the great connections and culture of our Monrovia community and I value your support.
