As a teacher at Monroney, I am thoroughly impressed with our principals and discipline. There are several schools in this district and in others (Putnam City) that do not follow through with discipline and allow students to be disrespectful. At Monroney, respectfulness is not only expected, but required. With a new principal and changes in scheduling (7 period day instead of 6; core teachers required to also teach electives) 16-17 school year has been difficult, but still much better than my experience with other schools. 90% of students that cause issues in class are coming from other schools. Often principals/teachers at MWCHS say they can always tell a Monroney kid, because they have better behavior than others. I would send my own kid to Monroney. There have been concerns in the past, but all problems are dealt with and punished appropriately.
Most students are expected to learn in traditional methods with accommodations given when possible. Would be nice to have working/standing desks for those students who have difficulty sitting for 7 hours a day, but Oklahoma will never fully fund education to help with things like this.
There are a couple teachers who cannot control their classroom and are unable to teach the curriculum. There are some alternatively certified teachers who only use the books and never leave the box. Most teachers give the maximum amount of effort possible, but teachers have it rough.
Things have definitely changed since I attended Monroney myself. My daughter attends here and the way she describes the school environment is a shame. Fights occur regularly, boy caught smoking weed in restroom etc. Unfortunately it has become an inner city school without a conducive learning environment. Sad, sad day for Midwest City. Monroney, the new Rogers Middle school which means Midwest City High will soon be the new Star Spencer if it isnt already.
This is a great school my children attends. I am a very involved with my children's education and I stay in continual contact with teachers. The teachers are very friendly and are welcoming to parents ideas to help their children succeed. This is a very safe learning environment as well.
My daughter is a 6th grader at Monroney Middle School. I like this school so far. The quality of teachers is good and the principals involvement is great. I feel like the school keeps parents informed about what's happening from fundraisers to school safety and I appreciate that.
