Monroe City Public Schools Reviews

All in all, my experience with MC Schools has been average at best. The positives and negatives are about equal. The education of my school in particular, has been focused on the most. We receive many benefits other schools do not. Some negatives I have to mention are the issues regarding race. Because we are located in the south of the United States, race issues are still prevalent. Besides the obvious problems regarding race that still burden people in my school district, my school does everything they can to keep students safe, give them a place to learn, a place to be themselves, and never making anyone feel inferior because of race, ethnicity, or religion.

I learned to contribute to my school. I've learned how to grow even when people don't accept it. I've learned to never let anyone deem my light because bulldogs shine.Like every school, we have our problems. I'd like to change the violence in my city.
I like how Monroe city schools pushes its students to success. They motivate you and I love how they embrace black culture. They have people who believe in you and they never give up. If you feel scared they make you laugh. The people in Monroe city school district are amazing they love you like you belong
to them. They want what’s best for all the students and they alway make sure your doing your best. They make they saying “it takes a village to raise a child” so true and for them I love that.
