Building On Success.
Assuring Our Future.
Are you committed to helping each child at our school reach their full potential, in mind and body? If you believe that quality instructors, small class sizes, a well-developed curriculum, and research-based instructional techniques will promote a learning environment that fosters student engagement and a love of learning, we need your help to make that happen.
In 2019, the Robert F. Munroe Day School Corporate Board and Board of Trustees approved to relocate the school’s campus from it’s current Mt. Pleasant location to a 40 acre lot at the intersection of Highway 90 and Lanier Road. The decision was based on the three primary reasons listed below.
Our signature building is 100 years old, and has major issues with wood rot, air conditioning, fire alarms, classroom amenities like Wi-Fi and network challenges. The cost for us to bring this beautiful structure up to current standards is massive. And that was before Hurricane Michael hit.
Hurricane Michael destroyed one building, and wind damaged every building on campus. Because FEMA has declared our area a disaster zone, your school has access to more than a million dollars in disaster relief funds that could either fix our broken campus, or provide even more funds to build new buildings that are up to code.
As much as you love our school, you know it is not in a very convenient location for our students. It is also prohibitively too far for many who want a great education. Even if we could fix our current campus, as beautiful as it is, our long term survival requires us to move to attract more students.
Educating children with character is just as important as academic education.
Will your contributions make the world a better place?
R.F. Munroe currently prepares students that compete with the very best in the Florida panhandle, at a cost nearly half of nearby private schools. Our new location gives our students a safe and secure learning environment that still maintains the same small town feel as you enjoyed.
Only through your generous support will we continue to grow and develop into the area’s top independent school, providing the children of this region the best educational experience possible while preparing them to be the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.
These new buildings will house student education and activities. Naming opportunities are available with each gift amount listed below.
