Monroe High Schoolis considered a very wonderful school in my eyes. They have a lot of help. The teachers are very organized but they need a tad bit of little help concerning discipline with the studens. But overall, it is an honor to have all the faculty members that really do care about the students. Monroe really works with the sudents concerning everything academically. They are very wonderful people and they do mean business. If you want your child to go to a paticular high school, please choose monroe because this school is your best option. It can be beneficial to you and your child. Honestly!!!!
