Fruita Monument High School is a high school located in Fruita, Colorado, United States, serving 10-12th grades. It is part of the Mesa County Valley School District 51.

As of 2012, Fruita Monument enrolls about 1284 students. It is one of the largest high schools in the Grand Valley, as well as one of the highest performing academically in the area.[1]

The student-teacher ratio is approximately 22:1.

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.
