Monarch School of New England
Over the past three to five years, the Monarch School of New England has grown into a regional elementary / middle and high school / vocational center — we have far exceeded our early beginnings. As such, our staff has increased to over 100, coupled with an increase in our student population to include 63 students in the 2018 fall semester. To address the continued demand for our services, our 2020 goals concentrate on becoming even better at what we do. Our goal is to go deeper into our work: to remember our beginnings and to build upon our roots of individualized, unique programming designed to meet the needs of every student that attends the Monarch School of New England.
In addition, building upon our uniqueness, another key goal in 2020 is to ensure that our high school students transition to some type of work or community service when they are 21 years old. We want to show our students have what it takes to make their community or work site a better place to be, not only because of how they might be able to help but also because of who they are and what they bring to it.
The Monarch School of New England offers a number of events throughout the calendar year as fundraising opportunities, including a Golf Tournament and Motorcycle Ride. There are opportunities for sponsors and participants within these special events. Additionally, the Monarch School of New England welcomes partnerships with local businesses, who host Vocational Program students for community-based job placements and frequently support the school with financial or in-kind donations as well.
The Monarch School of New England’s philosophy is to provide unlimited possibilities for students with special needs. The school is known for excellence in academic, therapeutic, functional life skills and vocational programming for students with special needs. The school is grateful for gifts of any size, which benefit the innovative supports and opportunities that put the school’s philosophy into action.

Volunteers are welcome in a variety of capacities at the Monarch School of New England. Students benefit from the opportunity to learn from, and interact with, caring, community members who are invested in supporting the potential of students with disabilities. Examples of volunteer engagement opportunities include peers from public high schools joining in social groups on a monthly basis, community members assisting at recreational activities such as kayaking or adaptive ski, supporting special events and fundraisers, or contributing to a special building project. Interested potential volunteers should contact the school to explore the possibilities for service that would best fit their unique talents, gifts and availability.
