Academics

Our students are on a path toward college and career. We have high expectations for our students and offer a high level of support to help children reach their full potential. We individualize learning based on on regular analysis of student progress throughout each school year. Monroe Preparatory Academy focuses on the young child and we work to build a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy. Students activities are designed to meet the unique learning needs of each student.

Core Subjects

These core subjects form the basis of our K–7 curriculum.

Language Arts

We help students develop vital communication skills, while inspiring a love of literature. Our young scholars learn phonics, grammar and comprehensions skills and prepare for reading through multi-sensory activities. Monroe Preparatory Academy students comprehend and analyze both fiction and non-fiction texts as early as kindergarten. The program emphasizes classic works, writing as a process, and the skills that will be tested when our students begin taking the state assessment when they enter third grade.

Math

We balance fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem solving. Our active approach ensures that students understand the realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Games and animations bring concepts to life, while challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery. We build from the concrete to the abstract as students move from basic skills toward algebra. Students learn by seeing mathematical concepts applied to the world around them.

Science

Our Science program uses hands-on experiments to support the systematic study of life, Earth, and the physical sciences. We nurture curiosity as students practice observation and analytical skills. Students learn how our understanding of the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances. Teachers provide regular opportunities for students to participate in experiments and projects that include opportunities to apply mathematics and technology through age appropriate activities.

Social Studies

With integrated topics in geography, civics, economics, and history, our Social Studies program opens young minds and imaginations to far-off lands, distant times, diverse cultures and their own community. We explore the history, geography and the relationships that exist in our community, nation and world.

Specialty Subjects

A truly well-rounded education must nourish the body and soul as well as the mind. We believe in the value of exposing children to the arts as well as to opportunities for exercise and physical competition.

Art

Hello! My name is Miss Lindway and I am the art teacher at Monroe Preparatory Academy. I have an art degree from Kent State University where I studied fine art as well as art history. I then furthered my education and received my Art Education degree from Cleveland State University. I am certified through the state of Ohio to teach Pre-K to twelfth grade art.
I come from a family of certified teachers whom share the passion of educating children, and servicing in their educational growth. When I am not teaching or planning, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and adventuring through the outdoors with my family and little dog Webster. I am a sports fanatic and a huge fan of the Cleveland Indians.
I am enthused to share my passion of art and art history with my students through multiple mixed media projects this year. We will be drawing, painting, creating 3D works, design collaborating projects as a school, and learn about classic and new age artists.
I am eager and excited for this school year to teach at Monroe Preparatory Academy!
