Principal's Message

“Only those who can see the invisible, can do the impossible.”


Monroe is a proud and caring learning community which strives for excellence. 


Our exemplary academic programs have resulted in outstanding student academic achievement.  Our school is a California Distinguished School, a Gold Ribbon School, a Title 1 Academic Achievement School, and has been a recipient of the prestigious Bravo Award. 


Our English mainstream and Spanish Dual Immersion programs enable our Mighty Lions to develop and realize their full potential across the breath of curriculum. 


Monroe is filled with spirited and curious students who are empowered through academic discussion, collaborative team work and critical thinking.  The talented teachers engage students in the learning process and inspire a journey of self-discovery.


Please stop by our office and meet our dedicated staff members who work tirelessly to provide a world-class education for our students.  We believe that children learn best when students, parents, and teachers work in partnership to meet each child’s unique needs.  I welcome the exchange of ideas between school staff, teachers, parents and community members.  We proudly welcome families from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and family structures.  I look forward to building relationships with our families and getting to know all of our new students. 


For our kids,


Lily Jarvis, Ph.D.

Principal and Director of Bilingual Programs
