I attended Monroe Middle School quite a few years ago. The school isn't bad. The teachers vary from the best to the not so great. How much extra help one receives depends on the students willingness to ask for it. The administration has changed since I went there, my sister attends now and it seems as if the change has caused improvements in the school. All and all, it was a good school. I have no major complaints about it. Regardless of what school you go to, how good your education is usually depends on how much effort you want to put forth.

All in all, extracurricular activities are fairly prominent and encouraged. Parent involvement depends on what grade your child is in. Most of the teachers are good, as well.

This is a excelent school that all three of my children have hone to. Each and every child is given the care and the learnight they need. This is a very strict school because they do not want to have to many distruptions from learning. They have a dress code that is strict and not liked by many but students seem 2 compromise.

Very Caring Administration...they communicate very well with parents. That is so important in middle school. The school has teams that help the students and teachers get to know each other. It is great that there is a separate wing for each grade level of classes...6th, 7th, and 8th.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.
