Educating students with neurological differences for the past thirteen years, The Monarch School has a holistic curriculum that focuses not only on the development of the participant's mind but how they interact with other individuals in society, The Monarch School shapes the lives of those with differences such as Autism, ADD, Tourette's Syndrome, Mood differences and Anxiety differences. 

Phase I, The Chrysalis Building, is the first of three projects at their new campus in northwest Houston.  The building is a three story, 24,700 sq. ft. educational complex that houses the school's Apprentice Program.  

The facility boasts large classrooms with community areas which allow students to interact in a controlled environment.  The building is designed with observation areas and quiet rooms with sound proof doors to allow educators the ability to control sensory input, providing students a learning environment that suits each child's needs. 

The Chrysalis Building is a LEED Gold certified project that utilizes construction techniques and materials that leave a small footprint in our environment.  It is the first LEED Gold certified school in Texas. The collected rain water will be used to irrigate landscaping when all three phases of the Monarch School are complete.  This, along with the use of native Texas plants for landscaping will reduce irrigation requirements and promote water conservation.
