At Tzu Chi Elementary, Monrovia we nurture and educate students from Kindergarten through fifth grade. Our faculty provides an exemplary bilingual learning environment that actively models globalism and environmentalism, while creating bilingual and biliterate students fluent in English and Mandarin. In efforts to provide a complete education that prepares our students for life in a global society, our character education curriculum is employed to infuse our rigorous academic program with respect, compassion, gratitude, and love. With a highly trained faculty that is well aware of the individual needs of each student, our class sizes remain small within a diverse, inclusive, and caring community to ensure that our students receive the academic and emotional support they need to thrive.
To complement our comprehensive curriculum that highlights caring for the earth and personal well-being, we serve freshly-prepared, nutritious meals each day. Moreover, we host a variety of community service activities, which offer our students a myriad of opportunities to develop relationships with members of the local community, families, and friends while pursuing their education with us.
Our faculty is dedicated to teaching analytical skills that will lay the foundation for ongoing academic success; while nurturing creativity, exploration, and a love of learning; and guiding students towards developing character, and a compassionate, respectful outlook. With love, attentive care, and patience, our educators mentor each student to develop his or her full potential, setting them on the path to life as engaged global citizens who contribute to society and protect the environment.
