    Monroetone is an EXCELLENT school! I have 2 children that currently attend one in 2nd grade and the other in 4th. This school has been the best school out of the other 2 they have attended The staff know all my kids by name and tell them to have a great day as we are leaving! Parent/Teacher connection is awesome as well! They keep me highly informed about my childrens progress.

    My husband and I moved specifically so we could be in Monroeton's district. Our son is finishing up 3rd grade at Monroeton and this is the 3rd elementary school he has attended (all 3 in Rockingham county) since 4 year Kindergarten. Monroeton is far and away superior to either of the other 2 schools. We have had no problems with bullies (a major issue when he was at Douglass) his teachers are wonderful. There is a great sense of community and it seems that the staff actually care about the kids. When my son switched to Monroeton at the end of the 1st 6 weeks of 2nd grade his grades were very low. He was reading at a 1st grade level and had a D in math. By the end of the 2nd 6 weeks he was reading on a 3rd grade level and had all A's & B's. He also won the 2nd grade Art prize at the end of the year! The school often has activities for parental involvement. Parents are welcome to volunteer or come and eat lunch with students. Now at the end of the 3rd grade he is still making A's and B's and is reading at a 6th grade level! My four year old will be going to Kindergarten this fall and I am very excited for him to be joining his big brother at this wonderful school.

    My children attended a different elem. school before this one and excelled. They both have had issues with teachers at this school and discipline problems--other children's discipline problems. Bullies galore. My oldest son has moved on to middle school and is once again loving school. I hope that after this year my other child will also have the same success. I regret ever moving them to this school. The administration has lost control of the students and since the last principal left there is little compassion. It's just business.

    Almost all of the staff at Monroeton is wonderful. They care for the students and have wonderful technology in place for the kids. I think it's a beautiful school also.

    My son is now in the third grade at Monroeton and I have enjoyed every years so far. The teachers are wonderful and the rest of the staff as well. I am impressed and has been with the security in the school. My middle child started Monroeton this year and I felt really secure about her going to school. I would recommend Monroeton out of all the schools in Reidsville.

    Monroeton Elementary school is a very good school. This school provides alot of good incenatives for the students. It is a safe school but my daughter will not be attending this school year. ONLY due to us moving into Caswell County. I think it is the best elementary school in Rockingham County. The teachers are nice and try to get to know you on a one on one basis.

    I am a lesbian mother w/ a lesbian partner and this school makes it so easy on us! They do not look at us like we are alien and they make sure that our children are not treated any different! They have several after school activities. My children love this school.. and they are glad to be at Monroeton vs. there old school (Lawsonville) The school is very clean and it is overall a Wonderful school!
