There are much better schools. This school is good in academics but they lack in any student control. They do not teach values like respect and compassion and the students seem to dictate too much in this school. Parents put pressure on the school even when their child is in the wrong and subsequently the school does not do its job. THey need to tighten their dress code and be more accountable with their students. This school is highly political and unjustly swayed. If you have other choices I would explore them

The school is great when it comes to education, but not enough to balance out the concern for sports, as if it was more important than academics. And there seems to be a lot of discrimination as well, which scares me because I wouldn't want anybody else witnessing this sort of acts that just aren't necessary.

MW Central School District offers a well rounded curriculum, excellent teachers, administration that cares and communicates, updated facilities, and exceptional after school activities.

How is this district faring these days? Is the HS still in favor with the students & parents? How is the music dept? -potential MW family

Monroe Woodbury HS is a great school. The teachers are nice, the students are friendly, and nothing bad happens here. The lunch tastes amazing and there are many things to eat! In MWHS, there are many things we can do, from clubs and activities, to sports and plays. There are a variety of fun, yet when it comes to academics, MW is very dedicated and the teachers actually want you to go to college. Great school - 10/10! -Monroe Woodbury Freshman Class of 2017! Crusaders!

Excellent school with very qualified teachers, lots of available electives for students, competitive with athletics and academics. There was one area I felt they lacked in though. We are a military family and my daughter transferred to the school the summer before 11th grade. The counseling staff didn't seem to understand how to help transfer students very well and didn't provide consistant information on diploma requirements since my daughter was not staying in NY for college and therefore didn't need additional endorsements on her diploma. We had to figure out a lot of that on our own.

Certain teachers/staff in this school have bullied (put their face near my child & screamed for no reason, threatened physically, wouldn't allow passage through), deliberately miss-graded my child because I complained about the teacher

To this parent, it sounds like you are the only parent that feels this way about M-W. It seems to me you are wrong and everyone else is right because you are the only parent or student that gave the school a bad review. If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything.

Monroe-Woodbury wins in my book for one of the best public high schools in New York State. The school is one of the biggest i've come across, which in the long run helps kids adapt to the college size and life. The sports are this school are also one of the best, if not the best, in the state as well. They're football is ranked nationally as well in New York, and they're sports are always top notch in winning state competitions. Anybody transferring to New York should be putting their kids in this high school. It's exceptional, but fairly high in school taxes and well-worth.

What a privilege it was to study at MW. This public school is exceptional at cultivating students, and the variety of extracurricular activities strengthens a student's growth. Some of the teachers are comparable to top universities' professors (I speak from experience). Mr. Filippone is a lovely person. Finally, the top graduates of each class have the opportunity to attend top- and second- tier colleges and universities!

I think this school is the best....with all the classes that they offer. Their teachers go above and beyond to give these kids the knowledge to get ahead and prepare them for the future. Monroe-Woodbury is the best.

Monroe-Woodbury is an amazing school that allows students to prepare for life ahead of them. It is a privaleged school that offers many electives. Students are able to experiment and decide what they want to do in college. Monroe-Woodbury is a safe place to learn and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

I think this school is great. The teachers are very involved and really seem to care about the students.

This school main focus is sports oriented. I don't think this school emphasizes academics. It seems like if you're not participating in sports, you're nothing.

My daughter is a Junior at this school & has been a student here since 9th grd. She is doing wondefully & is an A/B student. She is taking advanced Spanish for college credit & the school offers many opportunities for extracurricular activities & sports. The school is large however, I think this is good to prepare the youth for college life. The classes are not over-crowded. The principal is approachable and the school has zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior.

I attend the M-Dub High School and I love it. Its a great school, and offers many classes. I agree, it is crowded and there are too many period in a day, but other then that its a wonderfull school. Its starts a bit too early. 7:15, first classes start and its way too early.
