Principal’s Message

Aspire Monarch Academy is a public charter elementary school in the East Oakland community and a member of Aspire Public Schools, the leading California charter organization. We believe that every one of our students should, and will, have the opportunity to go to college and that it is our responsibility to prepare them for middle school, high school, and beyond. We are committed to cultivating a community of life-long learners who are empowered to have voice and choice in their own path, and are confident and feel successful in their endeavors. 

Monarch was founded in 2000 and will be entering its twenty 22nd academic year in 2021-2022. We recruit students who live in the immediate neighborhood and beyond, and our families come from diverse backgrounds. Of our 412 students, 95% come from families that identify as Latino, 3% from families that identify as African-American, and 2%that identify as Pacific Islander, Asian, or multiracial. Many of our families have multiple children attending Monarch and 91% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. Most of our scholars will be the first in their families to go to college, so we – Monarch staff and families- have high expectations for them every day. As one of the Bay Area’s Top Performing Public Schools, we hope you find Monarch to be a safe, joyful, and engaging learning environment.
