A teacher insulted my childs intelligence (it seems this was common, esp. for boys). when I complained, the teacher deliberately miss-graded my child for 2 quarters, we reported the teacher to the school board but the teacher is still there. This teacher also said my child was lying & we took his word at first. As it turned, the teacher was lying, withholding the passing grades & telling us they were failing grades. The teachers 2 friends (other teachers) harassed my child (made my child sit in the back of the class upon entering the classroom, etc.).
Monroe Woodbury is an amazing school. When I just started here as a 6th grader, I was treated with respect and treated as if I was as a young adult, not some little kid. Like all the other schools in the district, the academics are amazing, the lunch menu is decent and edible, the staff and students are kind and respectful, and the extra curricular programs are simply fantastic. My teachers have been kind, supportive and excellent. The motto is 'Respect and Responsibility' and I think the staff have taught us that exactly. I am truly proud to be a Crusader.
We moved to the Monroe Woodbury district for the gifted and talented program. The district is very supportive of gifted education, and the GT director is amazing.. My son was able to accelerate through the math curriculum with the administration and GT program support. He completed 6 years of math in middle school and will start HS in the precalculus honors program. Everyone has been very supportive.
I must say I was apprehensive in the beginning of the year. My son was transitioning from a catholic school and I wasn't sure how he was going to adjust. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. The faculty is amazing! The curriculum was on target and the amount of help that is available to the student is great.
The school administration, teachers and academics is great; however, the amount of bullying that goes on is horrifying! Not intended for children that thrive in more intimate school environments.
The worst mistake I ever made for my children was leaving this school district! It's the best! Accademics and support teams from s.e., nurses, teachers and all!! We miss you!
I'm a student at Monroe-Woodbury and this school has given me opportunites I wouldn't have had if I still remained in my old private school. This school has a very efficient system and the food is not the bad. The teachers are very nice and amazing( especially Mrs. Rostawanik and Mr. Reimer).
Monroe Woodbury Middle School is amazing. It gave me the best 3 years of my life. The great teachers and wonderful freinds, it was an unforgettable experience. This school has the best teachers, rooms and for the 6th graders coming into this new school, they will feel right at home and will have no difficulty finding their way through the school. Thet staff make each student feel special and give them the attention they need!
I moved from the Northeast Bronx to Monroe for my sons. They are doing brilliantly in th M-W school system because of the devoted Teachers, Administrators and Staff who give so much of themselves everyday. I am so very pleased and happy that I moved my little family here- thank you M-W!
M-Dub Middle School was a great school. My 8th grade years was an amazing one in the school. The teachers were amazing and being in blue house, we always had an amazing time!! The 8th grade dance was amazing! But i bet that i carnival instead of the dance won't be the same , but people will still have a good time.
May 5, 2006 - This has been our first year in MWMS and I am so pleased with the teachers, staff & organization that this school has to offer. Moving here from a small southern state the transition has not been easy, but they have been more than accomodating & very helpful & patient with my kids. I have sixth grader & an 8th grader which will be going into the High school next year. I would highly reccomend this school to any parent. I rate the school, staff and curriculum one of the best!
Our family moved from the New York City schools just as our son was entering sixth grade. He started in this district at MWMS. Though this is a big school (nearly 2000 students in just three grades), we never felt like our child was not getting individual attention or that he was lost in the shuffle. On the contrary, we were impressed with the small school feel the school has along with the big school opportunities. The physical plant was constructed in 1969 for use as a high school. Consequently it has an olympic sized swimming pool, high school quality science labs and home ec (sorry - home and careers) room, auditorium, band rooms, etc. Opportunities abound for gifted and talented students, and we were very pleased that our academically gifted son was able to take advanced courses and was continually stimulated and challenged. Great music program, too!
