My experience with Monroe Public schools, is that no matter how much the staff tries to instill a culture for students to thrive in, the culture of Monroe Public Schools and Monroe High Schools is extremely poor and does not create a good environment for students to be successful. I believe this falls completely on the students however. The amount of kids that don't try or care about their schooling allows the culture to be created that mediocrity is acceptable and many students don't strive to be their best as a result. This hurts students from the top to the bottom.

I enjoyed various things about attending Monroe Public Schools. Throughout middle and high school, I’ve been an athlete at Monroe, playing football and basketball. As an athlete, I feel like we are pushed to our limits on the field, on the court, and in the classroom. At some schools, it’s been rumored that teachers take it easy on athletes. At Monroe, however, there is an unbiased classroom with equal opportunity for all students. The only thing I would change about my experience at Monroe Public Schools is the food that we are served. Personally, I have not eaten lunch at school since my sophomore year, due to feeling sick from the meals.
What I enjoyed most about Monroe Public Schools were the academics in the High School. We were given many opportunities to further our interests in automotive courses, health professions, business, and more. What I would like to see improve is the political aspect that engulfs MPS, especially the high school. The politics surrounding sports, extra-curriculars, and academic treatment, negatively impacts many student's experiences.
