Great school in a great area . A beautiful campus in a great school system. Newest school in Walton County Schools.

Even though the staff, for the most part, is very nice and compliant, nice and compliant doesn't help my son's grades. When some of the staff cant correctly pronounce simple words correctly, it makes me wonder what kind of education he will continue getting should he stay at this school. His knowledge of what he had learned at school and his grades did not seem to reflect the work he was doing at home; making decent grades in school but not retaining or presenting the knowledge at home. Primary colors should have been taught in prek or K at the latest. He didnt know what primary colors were. Like I said, the staff was very nice, no problem there. Now my husband and I are seriously debating on sending him to Walker Park or Monroe. My daughter had no problems here. She was in the Focus program and felt like she was properly challenged for the most part.

Have two sons attending this school for the first time. Working to have them into another school come next year. Teacher in my oldest son's class plays Rap music & tells him to stop telling so much when theres the same kid bullying him around. My other son is very smart but the teacher cant keep him interested as he finishes his assignments & seeks more. This is not the place to be unless you wish for your kid to do just enough, be average or less and you don't expect much from the teacher.

My children have been going here for 4 years. My child has had Mrs. Widmer for the past 2 years. She is the best teacher! Keeps parents involved and updated. My child has grown so much in her class.

Blaine Street Elementary School is becoming a premier school. It is a Title 1 School of Distinction with great new teachers and a new principal who cares. I just wish they could get a new building that they so deserve!

My children are going to another school next year but I must say that last year was pretty low. The teachers as always did their best working with the students with no leadership. The climate at the school is very bad. I actually went to speak to the AP about how he was treating one of the best teachers there. I wonder what will happen to this school next year. It will be called Blaine Street Elementary and will be K-5 instead of K-2 as it has been in the past. I am glad to have my child out of there for next year. We have been redistricted to another school. Thank Goodness!

Even though this school is not my favorite at handlins matters. My son had two wonderful teachers. Mr. Hendrix for kindergarten and Ms. Mapp for first grade. Mr. Hendrix was an awesome teacher just what the school needed. Ms. Mapp was patient and very attentive to her students. They gave me their cell phone numbers and I handled pretty much everything directly through them. It was two great years because of them. Thank you Mr. hendrix and ms. Mapp! Mrs. Lovell

My child attends MPS and i love it. Her teacher is the best. The princial and assistant are always willing to help. The office staff always greet me with a smile and is always willing to help me everytime i'm there. MPS is a great place to be!!!!

I love MPS. My son attends 1st grade. The teachers have been very helpful.My experiences for the most part have been great. Monroe Primary School has been a very good school for me and my son. All the staff has been nice too. Hats off to the teachers.Their job is tough.

i love the teachers at MPS-they are helpful and courteous to mysely and my children-the principal and assistant principal are completely able to manage the job with-out forgetting the human aspect-the others are always nice-nurse Hattie is an angel-i absolutely love the pre-k teachers-they are so good with the little ones by understanding that this is a new and sometimes scary experience for students-they also promote parental involvement in the classroom and on the many field trips that they take-the first grade teacher of one of my children is very impressive-she is kind and she truly loves and cares about each and every one of her students and the education they receive-overall MPS is a great school but i also feel that part of the office staff should and could be alot nicer

My son is 6 years old and a student in Mr. Hendrix's class. Over this school year I have noticed positive changes and differences in him. He enjoys going to school and looks forward to it every morning.I do believe that his behavior has alot to do with the up-beat, positive attitudes the faculty and staff portray to the students. I can only speak for myself, but I for one always feel welcome when I go to the school for a conference or any class activity. I am met with a smile and a friendly hello. I can not thank Mr.Hendrix enough for all he has done. He is more than a teacher. He is a gift from Heaven.

I have a kindergartener attending Monroe Primary. I am so proud of the progress she has made. Her wonderful and caring teacher communicates with me often and I know immediately what problems I need to help her with. The office staff is very helpful. My child is in the 220 club. She is reading, which is more than I expected for 'Kindergarten.' I am sure there are great schools, but MPS is defininately one of the greatest. I love my school! I truly support it all the way.

I have 2 children here, one in pre-k and one in 2nd grade and it's been a nightmare! when my child was in k he was snatched up by his shirt, by his teacher(he has been in trouble one time at school in 3 yrs)the principal didn't seem concerned with anything except protecting the teacher.The front desk help is rude, I do not feel welcome at the school. This year my 2nd grader has had his belongings stolen, nose busted, he's been peed on and the same student told him he wanted to do some very ugly things to his mother. I'm miserable and so are my children, we are moving just to get away from this school system. And might I add my son can't read! good luck if you have to send your child to this school(I do want to add that there are some wonderful teachers here)

My husband and I were told, by our child's teacher, that he/she had nothing else to offer our child. Our child had met the expectations for his/her grade level and they could not offer him/her any other form of education. We were VERY DISAPOINTED. We would recomend to any one that has the means, place your child in a school that really cares about the individual children. We regret sending our child to MPS. If we could take back the year our child spent there, we would. VERY DIS-SATISFIED!

Monroe Primary is a wonderful school. Mrs. Bishop involves herself in all situations you can count on her and Mrs. LaChappell to be there for your child. The teachers there are dedicated to education of all the children. I have enjoyed my 2 years at the school, and I have 3 left at Monroe Primary, and I can guarantee that my children will come out of there with a great education. Mr. Byrd is a great teacher as are all on the Pre-K, Kinder, 1st, 2nd, EIP, and gifted teachers. Our parent involvement cordinator makes sure that parents are involved at the school. Thank you Monroe Primary for a wonderful place to learn.

This is a great school. But as with many schools, there are some teachers that are not as dedicated to learning the children. Ms. Bishop does a wonderful job and she will involve herself with any situation. The best staff teacher there for me is Mr. Byrd. He really cares about the children, regardless of color or background. And that to me, means more than anything. He does get involved and try to keep them straight. He still enjoys what he does and it is not just a job. And dealing with children, that means a lot. We need more Mr. Byrd's at the schools.
