    James Monroe is an awesome school to go to. It has a wonderful environment around it and if I could choose one middle school to go back to I would choose James Monroe. All the teachers have great attitudes and positive actions. This school really inspired me and I love it. It's the best school I'm the world. )

    As a parent of a Monroe 6th grader I am very pleased with this school. The principal is great as is the rest of the administration. Great school spirit and the teachers are very attentive to the student's needs.
