Monticello School District is not only a school district, it is part of a loving community who is connected like family. The employees of the district go above and beyond to make sure the students are always put first and, because of this, Monticello School District is one of a kind. The memories I have encountered throughout my years at Monticello will never be forgotten. Not only do the employees care about our education, but they care about the fun memories we make with our peers that will last a lifetime. Even through the struggles and circumstances (especially this past year due to coronavirus) the school district always stays optimistic in order to ensure their students education is not altered in any way. Students become products of their environment and the students who are raised in the Monticello School District cannot even be compared to anyone. Therefore, Monticello School District is by far one of the most involved and loving school districts in the state of Arkansas.

I have had a really good experience at Monticello High School. The environment is amazing, and one can always find a friend. The academic program is phenomenal, and the athletic,art, music, and other various clubs are just as good. Although, the district could improve on their teacher to student ratio. Because of the increasing student body, there are not many teachers to fulfill the many subjects offered at MHS. Therefore, students may struggle in gaining a personal relationship with the teachers, due to the over abundance of students per class. One can infer the reasoning behind the low teacher count from comments made by teachers and faculty at school. The administration, according to fellow teachers, is not teacher friendly. Also from a student’s perspective, they care more about money than the student’s well being. Although these negatives seem drastic, the student body and teachers come together to provide a good environment and work to better the administration.
I dislike monticello school district for many reasons. They are bias towards people with rich, white daddies; they act indifferent towards problems that actually matter. I love the sports teams I am on, cross country and soccer. I love the marching band. I dislike the football team that lost every game last season, but still gets every penny of funding.
