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 student. I am honored that you have chosen Monache High School as the place where your child 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 engages our students in real-world learning. We believe there is no better place to thrive.

I ask that you encourage your child to take advantage of all that Monache has to offer both academically and in extracurricular activities. Students that are involved in at least 1 extracurricular activity tend to have better grades and have a greater sense of connectedness and happiness.

I am confident that the 2019-2020 school year will be a great year for all our students. 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 student(s)! 

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


Dr. Eric Barba
