Fruita Monument receives new students primarily from its two feeder schools, Fruita Middle School (in Fruita) and Redlands Middle School (in the Redlands of Grand Junction). These two feeder schools are nearly 10 miles apart, and are significantly different. Fruita is a small farming community, while the Redlands is a larger, more urbanized area. These differences create a diversity at Fruita Monument that is unique among schools in the region. Recently an 8th and 9th grade school known as the Fruita 8/9 School was built to handle the growing number of students from Redlands and Fruita.
