Monroe is a school with a family atmosphere. It was the first middle school in Hillsborough County schools and all the teachers who have to leave, always say that they never found a school with the atmosphere like Monroe. Many of our alumni are now parents at Monroe and they like what they see. Monroe went from a C to an A this past school year, and the reasons are apparent. This faculty works very hard to support each other.
I love Monroe Midlle school it's the best school I attended to.I'm still going to Monroe and I'm in 7 grade.I'm loving it
I liked going to this school! I liked all the teachers i had and i liked joining the sports...haha two years ago... ya_ah
Monroe is a great school! I attend Monroe for the first year in 7th grade! There is some bullying but over all its ok. The teachers are great and they really interact with the kids!
As i read these reviews I ask myself when does the teachers/principal plan to take any action and make changes? This does not have to be such a bad school. It does not appear that the staff in this school really care about what happens to these students. Pulling my son from this school is the best thing I have done, and reading the other reviews I see still no changes have been made. It really is a shame!!
The academic level of education is good. And that is all. this scholl has a few staff members that are very helpful, but alot of them who are not. The school is run more like a prison with many of the teachers having terrible attitudes. Children are labeled before they even walk in the door. My child went from an A/B student to an F at this school and I pulled him out. He is now an A/B student again. I highly recommend that id your child has to attend this school thatyou stay in close contact with the happenings in and out.
This is son's first year at Monroe as a 6th grader and so far I am very excited about it. I also attended Monroe for 7th, 8th & 9th grade. The Principal and the staff seem very motivated and driven. I haven't had any bad experiences yet.
Monroe is a jewel in South Tampa. The teachers that my child has had have been of high quality, professional and truly caring. My child enjoys going to school and is excited about their days at Monroe. I have also found the Administration at Monroe makes every effort to be accessable and work in cooperation with parents.
The classes at Monroe are actually much larger than 19 students per class. My son has been attending Monroe for two years. For 7th grade, the class size is approximately 27 students per class. I have received paperwork from numerous teachers with spelling and grammatical errors. Other than sports, there are no extracurricular activities such as clubs or organizations for the students to join. The ROTC Program has also been cancelled, even though Monroe was the only Middle School in Florida to have such a program. Although rated an 'A' school, Monroe is more of a 'B' or 'C' grade school.
I think that Monroe is an excellent middle school. I would recommend it to anyone who ask. My daughter went to this school for sixth grade and the teachers were really great. They helped her on a one on one basis when possible and always gave outstanding support and encouragment. If it wasnt for an emergency move I would of left my daughter at Monroe for all three junior high years.
