Monroe high school truly is a great school. Monroe is like my second home, I have attended the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks since kindergarten. Some of my classmates have grown up with me and some have joined our school more recently, eaither way I still feel like they are all my family. The school gives you personal attention that public school can not. I am able to participate in any sport or activity i want to, therefore I am involved in such a wide varity of things. I play tennis, volleyball, basketball, and softball ive also done cheerleading and track and field. I'm very involved in student government, aca deca, Leo's Club, National Honors Society, AASG, and ASAA. I truly belive that having such a loaded schedual will help me get into college, I have Monroe to thank for that. Monroe has also tought me the highest moral standards.

Monroe Schools, both the elementary and secondary levels, do so many things right. It's an excellent school with an excellent, dedicated staff. Our family actually moved to Fairbanks so that our daughter could attend Monroe High School. We were especially interested in the music and math programs. Our daughter soon became interested in the after school programs and sports programs. It's a small school that stresses in its ads that it a fine school with a family atmosphere. The ads are correct! There is a strong feeling of connection for the students and for the students' families. That connection leads to many benefits for the students there. We are so happy that our daughter attends school there. She will graduate next year, and already she has her pick of colleges thanks to Monroe High School.

This school is absolutley terrible and has been ever since john hoffman left. The principal is too scared to make decisions on his own, the teachers don't have hearts except for about 3 of them, the rest could care less about the students which is not what you want in a good school. A word of advice if you were thinkin about sending your kids there.....DON'T.

Excellent teaching staff, especially Mrs. Sokaitis and Mr. Lantagne. The only problems there are disciplinary. For $4,000 a year it's not really worth it.

This school provides not only the finest basic education, but a wonderful grounding in moral and cultural values. Our children have grown and matured into productive and caring citizens, and their grades all improved dramatically when they transferred to Monroe.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
