Dedicated to student achievement, Monrovia Unified School District sees to the educational needs of all scholars, from preschool to high school.

The district is comprised of Canyon Early Learning Center; Bradoaks Elementary, Mayflower Elementary, Monroe Elementary, Plymouth Elementary and Wild Rose Elementary schools; Clifton Middle School; Santa Fe Magnet School; Monrovia High and Canyon Oaks High schools; Mountain Park School; and Monrovia Community Adult School.

With a “College-Bound Culture,” students are prepared to pursue the next chapter in their educational journeys once they graduate. Early on, MUSD pupils are encouraged to think about their futures.

Aside from its rigorous academics, MUSD offers the Dual Language Immersion Program. Through this initiative, students learn Spanish and English as part of their routine via the Foreign Language Academy of Monroe Elementary. The overall goal of the academy is to equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to be bilingual and bi-literate when they finish their primary education tenures.
