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.

I love that, with it being such a small town, Monroe County provides an intimate, hands on educational environment. They really strive to prepare you for college and the real world.
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.
