Monroe High Is A Great School Although I wish They Wouldn't Focus So Much on Dress Code...But As Far As Education goes Its In A Good/Grey Area Tutoring Is Held Everyday Except Wednesdays;Because There Are Teacher-Principal Meetings.And Tests Are Given Every Friday And As Far As I'm Concerned Grades Are Rising NOT Dropping Its Just What Others Have Heard About MHS In The PAST
Iam a student at Monroe high and i think its a great school people talk so much and say its bad but the teachers are amazing and are there to help you when you need help everyone has there own problems but when it comes down to learn there are alot of great students at monroe that other school would love to have (: Monroe High Is A Great School
The school is more concerned with dress code than academics. Its ridiculous!
I am a graduate of Monroe High School, and I believe that Monroe's bad reputation is completely undeserved. The teachers are great and, more importantly, they really care about the students. Sports and extra-curriculars are fun and accepting of new members. Many believe Monroe is a dangerous school, but I never felt like I was in danger. The administration can occassionally be lax, but when it comes down to it they are willing to do anything to help their students. Overall, I would recommend Monroe High to any parent. The diversity is often looked down upon, but I believe it is the foundation upon which the school sits. The lessons I learned from that particular environment are invaluable. I am very pleased with the education I received there, and where it has gotten me, into a Top 10 Liberal Arts College. I couldn't have asked for more.
I think Monroe High is a great school. It really bothers me when people from other schools label Monroe High as the bad school or shall I say not up to par when there are problems in their school as well, it is just kept on the hush hush. The staff there is wonderful and the kids can get a great education.
While the sports, and other extra-curricular activities are great the saftey and disipline is very poor. The administration over-looks many of these problems. This school is very diverse though the administation focuses on african-americans as the main student body and even has what is called a black fact of the day. This causes the african-american students to stick together and look down on the caucasians and latinos.
My daughter is currently attending monroe high school. She views it as a lesson in the real world. She encounters experiences everyday, that she will deal with after her scholastic career. This is a high school where their diversity is one of their greatest assets, and the students there welcome it, and learn from different cultures. The teachers are fantastic, and their willing to go the extra mile to help each student, because the majority of the students there come from a socially challenged background, and the students know that the only way to succeed is by a strong educational foundation.
