Transitioning to Monarch High School

Monarch offers several programs to help incoming freshman transition into high school.

8th Grade Transition Night

Each spring semester we have a Transition Night following the Open Enrollment process, typically in mid to late February prior to course selection. Students and parents have the opportunity to learn about Monarch High School’s curriculum, 9th grade expectations, and graduation requirements. Department representatives are on hand to answer specific questions about placement and programming. 

Athletics & Activities Night

In early May we offer an evening where families can explore clubs, activities, and athletics though an arena style event with student, staff and coach representatives. Find out about summer camps, registration, and how to get involved. 

MHS 360

Our Mission: To be a youth driven mentor program that supports a positive school culture, eases the transition for all incoming students, and creates a sense of belonging and achievement that is inclusive of race, socioeconomic class, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, nationality and heritage. *For more information, please visit the MoHi 360 website:

We are excited to have an active and inclusive MoHi 360 program at Monarch. Our 360 Leaders will conduct a full day of activities with incoming freshman in August during Freshman Orientation Day. This will include an opportunity to find their classrooms, lockers, a scavenger hunt through the school, and several small group activities to meet and mingle with their peers.

MHS Student Ambassadors

To help ease the transition for incoming new 10-12th grade students our Student Ambassadors will conduct a New Student Orientation for a portion of the first day of school - prior to classes starting. This will allow upper grade level student an opportunity to get familiar with the campus and meet and mingle with their peers. 

Throughout the school year, as new 9-12th grade students enroll, a Student Ambassador will provide support on their first day of school to help navigate the halls and happenings at Monarch High School.

Clubs & Activities

Getting involved in extracurricular activities speeds up the social transition for many students. We offer well over 30 student and staff led clubs and activities. If you don't see one that interests you, there is always the option to start your own. This is a great way to help make a larger school feel more like your school.

Sports Training

Another opportunity for incoming freshman to get plugged into the Monarch experience is through summer sports camps and training. All fall sports participants are encouraged (though not required) to attend summer training and conditioning sessions. This is an excellent opportunity to meet other Monarch students and staff! For more information about summer conditioning programs, please contact the athletic office at (720) 561-5641.
