We work together with students, parents, administration, and the community to provide quality learning opportunities, to encourage students to reach their individual learning potentials.
Mascot, Theme, & Color
The Monument mascot was officially adopted in 1999 when Monument was opened.
Students and Facilities
Our behavior expectations at Monument are found in every classroom and throughout the building. Students are taught the expectations at the beginning of the year by their teachers and then systematically during the year. By teaching the expectations and reminding them every day of the commitment we all have to those expectations, referrals for misbehavior have significantly gone down each year. We reinforceÂ students for their positive choices by verbally praising them, giving themÂ Monument MoneyÂ they can purchase rewards with, and the Student of the Month positive recognition assemblies held every month.Â Our teachers, staff, and parents work together for our awesome students and we thank every one of them.
All Behavior is Chosen to Align with these Three Personal Standards
1. Be Respectful
2. Make Good Decisions
3. Solve the Problem
Academic Progress and Expectations
The state under the direction of the federal government is changing the evaluation system of educators and also requiring action when a school is underperforming. Lists have been published by the state that identify schools that are struggling based on the MSP. Monument is on one of those lists along with most of the schools in our district. We have a district plan to help our students succeed that we are currently implementing.
Mission: The Quincy School District Improvement Plan cites two goals that will be embraced within the mission of The Academy. All students will show growth on state and district assessments. Gaps involving poverty and language barriers will be eliminated. The Academy, like every class in the district, embraces these goals and aspires to provide a challenging and progressive education for district students.
