    Excellent school. They care about the students and they push their students to be their best.

  • (9 years ago)

    I like the programs that Monroe has for the parents for example the Saturday Classes to learn English as a second language. If parents don't know how to read and write English then we can't help our children. I would like more hours. I would like more reading and writing programs for the students.
