I am a Monroe 7th grade student and absolutely love it. The gifted and talented programs are awesome, and the teachers are just the best.

My son attended Monroe and we were not happy with it on several levels. Academically, we felt it was lacking. There was little homework and the work was not challenging. As a large, inner-city school, it was not the sort of environment where a parent could get to know the teachers. We had difficulty getting even the most basic feedback and information.

for activities, they have several that a lot of students can get involved with. I know eight years ago they didn't have as much as they do today. I think they do this so they aren't so bored. I don't know how many parents are involved with Monroe. We try to at least get some involvement with them.

This school is caring and takes care and treats all students like equals. My daughter was involved in show choir and volleyball. She loved it. The art program is wonderful. I loved the hat she made. I get involved alot.
