Great School!!! My son and daughter attended Monroe. The teachers, principal, and everyone else working there are awesome. I'm so happy that we decided to send our children there. Monroe is tops in my book and the education my kids received was outstanding. They truly care about each and every student. Recently, I've noticed teachers wearing bully free t-shirts. That says a lot about the leadership at Monroe. Mustang Pride!

Monroe staff members truly care about the students and bend over backwards to provide each child with the best learning experience and environment possible. The are over worked and understaff, yet they continue to go over and above any expectation out there. They do not put in their time and go home. Come spend a day or two in any classroom and see for yourself.

Monroe is an unfortunate example of what is wrong with most of our education system today. Most staff in Monroe are more concerned with what is best for the collective and not for what is best for the individual. Instead of focusing on providing a challenging education to all children equally, they rely on their best performing students to close the gap with the inadequate performance of students who will lack the skills to attain meaningful employment as adults because they were taught to underachieve. Sure they have some great artistic and social opportunities, but that does not make up for their failure to provide more than a basic education for their students.The principle lacks leadership.

The teachers are great with keeping me informed! I have a son in a two family home and they are great with sending 2 Friday folders and keeping both myself and his mother informed of our son's progress! I am grateful for this!

There are lots of opportunity for parents to volunteer, however parental comments on ciriculum or school operations are not appreciated. The school lacks leadership. The principle is extremely touchy and dismisses parental concerns such as bullying and the lack of history and geography in the ciriculum. Some of the good teachers are overly burdened with disruptive students and an increasing number of non english speaking students. If I had known about this situation before we moved we would have picked a different neighborhood.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.
