I have been more than pleased with the changes that have taken place since the new principle has started at Monroe! I've been a parent at Monroe for the last seven years so I have seen a lot of positive changes and speak from experience. Mrs. Wilson is nothing but professional and cares deeply for the well being of every student. More parents need to get involved at the school and they would see this. The teachers have always worked with me to give my kids the attention they need whenever I had a concern.

Monroe elementary is a wonderful school! the staff is very caring and interested in the children and their success. The transition was difficult for all the staff and the incoming children from McKinley. If you weren't happy with the school year and didn't talk to someone, you must have realized that change takes time. The teachers are excellent and the principal is a strong leader. The academics are strong and taught with each child in mind. The children are treated with respect and still allowed to be children. Change takes time but in the short time the new principal has been there a lot has taken place and the building is exciting again! It is just a building and that isn't what makes a great school, the staff and families do! Lots of families are very involved with activities and the children are happier for that reason.

They above and beyond the school curriculum to educate and nuture students in every possible way and promoting positive behavior on a hourly and daily basis. I am very impressed with the teaching staff and their dedication to the students of Monroe Elementary School. Please consider this school at voting time. Thank you.

This has been a great year for my kids. To the previous parent's comment... the Meap scores on this site are from the 2008-09 school year (they have 6th grade listed -- and 6th grade is gone). The teaching strategies that were implemented this year are based on current research. We can't fairly judge the full effect until the 2011-2012 MEAPs, when the programs have been in place a full year. I love the new reading program that assesses the individual students into groups at their reading level. I love the consistency of how the staff teaches positive behavior. I love all the excitement that is stirred up with the various activities. The teachers don't just teach out of a textbook, they teach the same curriculum as the other schools, but find new and exciting ways to deliver it. My kids LOVE this school.

The Monroe teaching staff is second to none. The new leadership is not very willing to listen to the Monore community. The new staff has a phony attitude in which they care more about appearance rather than substance. Most programs and philosohies here differ from all of the other buildings in the district and they new principal makes it clear that she feels the other schools just are not on the same caliber with her beliefs. However, the other schools do have higher MEAP scores and a higher percentage of college acceptance and attendance. Maybe with a little less emphasis on how 'we are the best' and a bit more community solidarity and encouragement would pay off here. All-in-all nice clean building, nice location, and quality teaching staff. Less look at 'me,' and more look at 'we' would move this rating to 5 stars. Vocal minority wins here.

I have never seen such devoted teachers and staff like I have seen here. Parent involvement is greatly encouraged and appreciated. They take great pride in the building appearance and it is just a great learning environment.
