need to hear the words, “I am so sorry.” Read the article HERE.


Work-Based Learning Opportunity

On Sunday, June 11, the Monarch School of New England staffed a vendor table at the
Cocheco Valley Humane Society Fundraiser: Tails to Trails. This made for a meaningful
work-based learning opportunity with one of our students, Mikayla, who
sold our dog bone biscuits for 1 1/2 hours. It was a successful morning.

Open House 2015

Our families are a big part of our school. We couldn’t do the work we do without them. We work closely with our families, the goal being that the new behaviors learned at the school transfer to home life. Consistency is critical!Here are some photos of our kiddos and their families from our Open House in September 2015.
