Monkstown Park Junior School is a fee paying, independent, co-educational Primary School situated in the heart of Monkstown, South Co. Dublin. Located close to Monkstown village and is set within a beautifully enriched and vibrant school campus with acres of green space. Our School caters for boys and girls from Junior Infants to Sixth Class.

Every child that enters through our doors is given the opportunity to grow and develop in a happy, nurturing and supportive environment, that is enhanced with an abundance of learning experiences. Whilst our fundamental focus is on quality education following the National School Guidelines as set out by the Department of Education and Skills, our core values are centred on developing each pupil as a well-rounded individual.

We are a member of the Association of Independent Junior Schools (AIJS) and we maintain a strong link with other AIJS schools in Dublin. We regularly participate in events organised by the AIJS throughout the year.

As mentioned above, we are extremely lucky to be situated on such a large school campus with access to lots of outdoor space including Rugby pitches and Astro turf areas. These are used daily by the pupils to explore the natural outdoor learning environment and be close to nature. Physical activity is vital for each pupil's development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life. We are proud to say that Monkstown Park Junior School is an 'Active School' there is big emphasis on physical activity and health promotion. We start off our school day with a morning run around the whole school campus. Teachers, pupils and parents partake in this daily event. It has really proven to be the best way to start our school day. We have also seen an increase in attention and memory span amongst our pupils and encourages us all to start the day on a very positive note which in turn, helps facilitate learning in the classroom.

Each pupil within our school is assigned to one of our four long established house teams, this has been a long standing tradition in our school. There are many events throughout the school year that encourage teamwork in areas such as art competitions, talent spots, orator competitions and many more.

Monkstown Park Junior School naturally fosters a vibrant and solid school community that works collaboratively with pupils, teachers and parents alike. I would encourage you to arrange a visit so see our school in action, meet with me and the rest of our dedicated teaching team and experience first-hand what our unique school has to offer.

I look forward to personally welcoming you to our school.
