All good. The school academics are constantly growing. They continue to grow their Ap and dual enrollment programs, which prepare students for college, with college based classes. Only thing I would change would be the remodeling of the school. It’s a little older than most schools, but all in all, that doesn’t affect the academics.

Monroe County is a great school system and most of the teachers care a lot about the success of their students, but one thing that's always bothered me about the Monroe County School System is the politics. The social and athletic success of students is largely based on who their parents are and how much money their parents pay to the school. Anything from parking spots to homecoming court is based on the last name of the kid. I guess that's what you get when you go to school in such a small town.
Personally, I enjoyed my years within the Monroe district. Our schools are really great, education wise. However, if I were to see anything change it would be the high school. The building has been the same for decades and it would be great to have something new.
