Principal's Message

Welcome to Monache High School, Home of the Marauders! I know you have many options when it comes to choosing a high school for your child(ren). I am honored that you have chosen Monache High School as the place where your child(ren) will grow and learn throughout their 4 years.


At Monache, we are a team of teachers, administrators, staff, students, parents and community members that are dedicated to providing a comprehensive educational experience for our students. Safety is paramount to our success. We believe a strong academic program that includes AP, college courses and intervention courses opens doors for future opportunities. We stand behind visual and performing arts, boasting award-winning bands and choirs. We believe participating in extracurricular sports builds character, perseverance and pride. Our career pathways and agriculture program engage our students in real-world learning. We believe there is no better place to thrive.


Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we will start the 2020-2021 school year through distance learning. Our teachers have been trained in the use of various distance learning tools such as Google Classroom, Zoom, Flipgrid, Screencastify, Peardeck, EdPuzzle, Gizmos and many more educational technology tools. We have invested in these tools so that your child’s educational experience online will continue to be engaging and cognitively challenging. We will continue to teach the California Content Standards on an online format.


I am confident that the 2020-2021 school year will be a great year for all our students. While it will be different, our staff will work tirelessly to meet the needs of your child(ren). Please feel free to reach out to your student’s teachers, counselor, office staff or one of the administrators should you need any support this year. We are here to support you and your child(ren)! 

We are Monache! We are Marauders! Have a great year!
