Monroe County School District Reviews

I attend Smithville HighSchool. The advantage of going to a smaller school as u have the opportunity to play sports, individual help with school work. Everyone knows each other and works towards a common goal of success for the students. When the Tragedy struck smithville 7 years ago, many families lost loved ones. Churches came out while we were trying to salvage what was left of our home, and brought food and water. Many people donated money,food, clothing and opened their homes for people to stay. We were without a home for 6 months. It took several years to rebuild our school and churches. Some business were unable to rebuild, some have returned. I plan on getting an education, returning home to help in my community.

Monroe County schools strive for excellence. It strives to teach and prepare students with what they need to be successful on standardized tests. I would like to see a few changes. I do not feel like Monroe County, or my school anyway, has adequate leadership in the line of counselors to assist with college planning. It is difficult to get answers and forget about getting help with how, when and where to apply.
The small classroom sizes and great athletics. Being in the Monroe County School District is like being in a family. You learn and know friends from three different campuses. You all grow up together and play sports againist one another. I would recommend this school district to anyone.
