The school has very great teachers and a great principal. The academics are challenging but not most of the students are motivated enough. The staff is great but they can be better. The school offers homework help and lots of after school programs. I do see some inappropriate actions like public display of affection and hear a lot of cussing with the students. The teachers really do want to help the students but the less intelligent students aren't motivated enough to learn.

I am really happy with my choice to send my child to Monroe. My daughter has thrived at the school. She is on the honor roll. The teachers are open to communication and get back to me right away. They stay after school to help children who need it. They offer sports, band and theatre. The principal is really great she wants to be there and make a difference. She is approchable and willing to listen. She wants what's best for her students and the school.

I love monroe! I am in 6th grade and i was also at monroe for fifth grade. The teachers at monroe are just so caring and supportive of every student there attending at monroe. The principal, the VP, they all care. Even though we may have uniforms, it doesnt rally matter anymore. Thats because of everything else the school is doing for all us students, we dont really care if we have uniform.

I am a Monroe parent and the teachers care. My son is in the 7th grade and the responsibility is definitely on his shoulders to turn in his work or face the consequences. The teachers communicate beautifully and want to teach to kids that are ready to learn and to families that care. I am not sure many of the parents are terribly motivated to participate or communicate with the teachers so there could be some motivation issues on both the students and teachers sides. He has attended since the 6th grade and wants to go to Leigh H.S. (not Del Mar).

My son just transferred from Catholic school to the 5th grade in Monroe Middle School. I had been concerned about the lack of discipline and acceptance of rude behavior in public schools. This is not the case at Monroe. The staff is dedicated to addressing bad behavior and the commitment is strong by the 5th grade teaching staff. The teachers acknowledged unacceptable classroom behavior and realize it takes away from learning. They are champions for each child and want to take intimidation by other students out of the classroom.

This past year I was a 7th grader. I would best describe Monroe as an..okay school. The school has a few issues that have yet to be dealt with but what school doesn't? The staff does as much as it can but the students there can be..difficult. Teachers that personally helped me were Mr.Cribari, Mrs.Pagendarm,Ms. Stark, Mrs.Hunt, and Mr. Leone. They helped me reach my potential. The only bad thing that was there was discipline. Students can sometimes get off easily. Monroe is an ok school and I enjoyed waking up in the morning to go there.

This school is horrific. Children are out of control there and I would never recommend this to any parents who actually care about their children. This school does have some good teachers who care (Mr.Cribari, Ms.Stark, Mr.Leone, etc.) that try their best. If you care about your child safety I suggest that you don't even consider Monroe.

As a former student (class of 2006), I must say I cannot find many positive things to say about this school. As a straight 'A' student, it soon became clear to me that the quality of teaching was well below average when I started my freshman year of high school in the fall (not at Del Mar High like a majority of former Monroe students). The former principal, however, must be credited for her great attempt to make the school a better place, but to no avail. Overall, though my middle school experience was not completely bad, there were times when it was quite enjoyable.

Monroe should not include 5th grade at this school. Much more geared to older students.

Acceptable learning environment, good music program. Lacking in the parental involvement area. I would give this school a 7 out of 10.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
