I have been in the Monroe School District for my entire K-12 education. I appreciate the tight-knit community and support surrounding Monroe schools. We are very spirited, but also academically successful. I have enjoyed taking honors and AP classes that challenge me and my peers. It is a very safe and comfortable learning environment. One thing I would like to see improved on is more fun activities to increase unity among our school. Go Bearcats!

Monroe High School is simply average. There are a few fantastic teachers that I will cherish for the rest of my life, but then there are some teachers who are absolutely awful. In my experience, a majority of teachers that I had while attending here didn't seem to care much about their job as a teacher. What made my experience the worst at Monroe was the student involvement. The school is ran by the ASB director who only seems to care about herself. Assemblies were awful and very disengaging. Football games were decent, but poor attendance in the student section most games. I personally wish I did Running Start full time so that I wouldn't have had to be in the toxic environment of the school.
Overall, Monroe High School has been an average experience. While I wasn't horrifically bullied by other students and have a good time for the most part, I feel that the higher administration should focus more of those who are more academically-driven. Being a Running Start student, I was harassed by my principle because I didn't have a way off-campus when my classes were over. Unfortunately, it seems that this school is focused more on forcing kids who don't care to learn, than helping the kids who want to learn and go further in their lives. Otherwise, the experience is what I would call "normal". There's nothing particularly significant about the school.
