“Home of the Eagles”
Monetville Public School is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 rural school with 48 students. Named after the area’s founder, Mr. Cyril Monette, this Rainbow School first opened its doors on January 3, 1950.
Monetville Public School is located on the Southeastern boarder of the Rainbow District School Board’s jurisdiction, delineated by Highway 64 East and East Road, in North Monetville, Ontario.
Following a boundary review, the catchment area was expanded to include the area west and south of Delamere Road in Alban to Highway 69 South. Families living in French River region now have the choice of enrolling their children in Monetville Public School. Our large catchment area covers Alban, Noelville, Monetville, Dokis Reserve Grade 5 to 8 and a portion of St. Charles.
Monetville Public School has a significant First Nations population (approximately 20%). We maintain close contact with the Dokis First Nation Education Officer to continue to foster community, improve communications and increase the learning skills of students in Grades 5 to 8.
Monetville believes that “it takes a community to raise a child.” Our curriculum emphasizes excellence in reading, writing and mathematics, providing a solid foundation for future learning. We have made a strong commitment to involve our parents and school community in character education. Parents have overwhelmingly endorsed the many programs in our school.
We recognize the importance of character development and have initiated several programs/activities to assist our students. Students participate in activities such as: Stand Up Against Bullying, Roots of Empathy, D.A.R.E., Monthly Character Traits, Fall Feast, Peace Day, We Day, Terry Fox Run, and Nickels for the North, addressing critical areas of personal development.
Working in partnership with Breakfast Clubs of Canada, Better Beginnings, Better Futures and Childhood Enfance, Monetville Public School is able to offer students a Breakfast Program. Kindergarten to Grade 8 students start their day with healthy, nutritious snacks five days a week.
We are proud of the many achievements of our students in academics, arts, and sports. With engaging programs, our school will continue to improve for the benefit of students, parents and the community at large.
