    I attended Monroe Middle School quite a few years ago. The school isn't bad. The teachers vary from the best to the not so great. How much extra help one receives depends on the students willingness to ask for it. The administration has changed since I went there my sister attends now and it seems as if the change has caused improvements in the school. All and all it was a good school. I have no major complaints about it. Regardless of what school you go to how good your education is usually depends on how much effort you want to put forth.

    All in all extracurricular activities are fairly prominent and encouraged. Parent involvement depends on what grade your child is in. Most of the teachers are good as well.

    This is a excelent school that all three of my children have hone to. Each and every child is given the care and the learnight they need. This is a very strict school because they do not want to have to many distruptions from learning. They have a dress code that is strict and not liked by many but students seem 2 compromise.

    Very Caring Administration...they communicate very well with parents. That is so important in middle school. The school has teams that help the students and teachers get to know each other. It is great that there is a separate wing for each grade level of classes...6th 7th and 8th.
