About our school

Our Vision

Monocacy Elementary School provides a high quality education where parents, staff, and students demonstrate persistence, resilience and strong character. All stakeholders respectfully support one another to facilitate rigorous learning and high standards for behavior.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide all students with a rigorous instructional program in a respectful, nurturing environment.


Monocacy Elementary opened in the school year of 1961-1962 and is located in the agricultural reserve. There were approximately 236 students enrolled in Kindergarten through Sixth grade. Our current Kindergarten through Fifth-grade enrollment is 174.

There was a two-year renovation from 1988 – 1989. The school saw many new changes and additions as all the classrooms were remodeled and four new classrooms were added. In addition, a brand new full-size gymnasium was added at the back and the library-media center was enlarged. The building is built in the shape of a “U” which is home to our beautiful courtyard with a Butterfly Garden in the middle. In the summer of 2009, our roof was renovated.  This summer our parking lot was resurfaced and we have a new entrance.

Monocacy Elementary celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2011-2012.
