State Senator Mike Johnston said after his visit to Monarch:
"As a former teacher and principal and now a parent in Northeast Denver, I had the privilege of visiting Monarch for the first time a few weeks ago. I was astonished at the rigor and relevance of the education they are delivering in only their second year. What you see at Monarch is exactly the prescription for outstanding education: strong and committed leadership and highly-trained staff who have a tremendous understanding of pedagogy as well as a deep love for children. Montessori is one of the most successful and sought-after early childhood models in the country, and I have never seen their model implemented with greater strength and fidelity than in my visit to Monarch."
