I am a parent and an alumni of this school and the things I could tell you about MA are endless. My favorite thing about Monroe is that the school is small enough that everyone pretty well knows each other. It is a small but large family. The education is great and as an alumni there was never any doubt where I wanted my 3 kids to go. If you are looking for a great school, great education, a family atmosphere with all the perks of the big, expensive private schools then Monroe Academy is for you. Come check it out.

Small school with a big extended family atmosphere. Almost all graduates attend college. A few enter the military. Plenty of extracirricular activities with nearly all who try, able to play sports. Unbelievable bang for the buck. Most families eagerly eliminate a car payment to allow their child to attend. Not 'high society'. We shopped around, tried it for a year and then my family moved to Forsyth just for this school. We have not been disappointed. A better than average local public school system still is no substitute for the old-time small school feel and the ultimate results.

Monroe Academy is actually 3K through 12th grade. It is a wonderful school with great parental involvement. Each student is treated with respect and all of the teachers are happy and satisfied and it really shows in the way that they treat their students. It is a small school with small class sizes therefore no student is 'lost in the shuffle'. My children love this school, adore their teachers, and have many wonderful friends whose parents all have the same values as I do. There are so many family oriented activities that you just don't get at a public school. One of my children did attend a public school in Forsyth and was so unhappy there that she came home in tears every day. She will never go back. Prospective students can 'shadow' a student for a day to check it out. You should try it!

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.
