I have had really good experiences with this school. My kids' teachers have been excellent and my kids have loved them all. It's been really exciting to see how parents & teachers have been trying to make the school better every year.
Amazing, as I read these reviews it is exactly what I have seen and experienced at this school. Not friendly and not safe, lots of bullying and no one on staff, from principal down, cares. I pulled my kids out. If your child goes here keep an eye on what goes on and if there is trouble and no one cares, send a registered letter to the superintendent. Rating? there is no option for going into the negative.
2009-2010 was my sons first year at monroe. They were in first and third grade. We had a pretty good year. I read some reviews from other parents and we did not have any problems with bullying. In My opinion the school has been strict with safety and conduct. Maybe they took heed on what parents were complaining about and are taking action. I was just a member of the PTSA last year. Now I am going to actually participate which is the problem with a lot of schools. There is not enough parent participation.
We have only been at this school for one year. Not very family oriented- not happy with the no celebration of holidays. I believe that it is part of our childrens memories, and they are way too worried a bout being PC.
The elementary experience at Monroe was fine. It is the middle school experience that has been frustrating. The erratic teaching styles and requirements of the staff are reinforced by the do nothing administration. we have had bullying and teacher compliance problems within the middle school and received empty promises by the outgoing administration and we are now underwhelmed by the new administration. We are now looking forward to June and being done with this school.
