I have really enjoyed this school. My oldest has been there 5yrs and is going into 5th grade and my youngest just completed kindergarten. We had a wonderful year and both their teachers were great. Both of mine grew mentally and socially this year with their teachers. The principal, vice principal, and office staff are accessable and great to.deal with. Sure some of the kids that come through there don't seem to have the guidence they need but that has to do with family and not school staff. The staff here obviously care about their students and about the job they are doing. My older son is also in the focus program and this offers him additional challenges and the two focus teachers are also wonderful. I think the school could use more parent involvement. Some parents just don't seem to.want to get involved and I think that involvement is very important. This school has been a great expirence for.my family.
I was a little nervous about changing schools and my child being the "new" kid. I am so, so, so happy that we switched. I can honestly say that our 5th grade year with Mrs. Malcom was our best year so far! This is a wonderful teacher and she is very "On Top of It" with discipline, teaching. She makes every child feel like they're the only one in the classroom. I've had to call the school a few times and speak with different staff members. Everyone has always been very helpful. I hope that next year's Kindergarten class is the same for my youngest.
Monroe Elem is a good school. Most of the teachers are truly excellent! The principals greet our children by name. They truly care about the education and care of our children. A few children come from really rough homes and need to learn how to take responsibility for their actions. All the teachers seem to want what is best for ALL the students.
It is sad that we have behavorial problems at this school. It is the parents job to handle this and teach the children respect of others. To respect the oppurtunity to learn. I have 3 children their and so far so good. Last year I had a problem with my youngest in K he regressed and his teacher was not very, should I dare say, good. She was not intune to a 5/6 yr old. This year in first grade he is excelling. In this world we all have to overcome something. Learning how to learn when everything else is falling apart is a good lesson. Regardless of what others do in my childrens classes, I try my best to say You have to not do like others but do what YOU KNOW is RIGHT. I do not think it is the teachers job to teach our children that.
MES is an awesome school! I have been on the PTO and have had 2 children go thru this great school. The staff is wonderful and the teachers are great! MES is the best!
