Moving to Fredericksburg from Stafford wasn't that exciting for me. I missed all my friends and was worried about participating in the same things I did in Stafford. My freshmen year was pretty decent, I was apart of the JV Cheerleading team, and I was in DECA. My sophomore year was a step up, I played basketball and was still in DECA. Junior year was even better, it was a struggle but the school activities made it tolerable and fun. I ran track was apart of DECA and made friends along the way. The teachers really take the time out to understand you not only as a student, but as a person. I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend my last four years of being a kid then at James Monroe High School.

Personally, my experience there was not that good. It was a different setting than what I was used to in a high school setting. I was new my junior year and administrators and teachers were not very helpful. I was not given a tour and I kind of felt as if I had to figure it out on my own because I was not a Freshman. There was a lot of disorganization in administration and the counselors were terrible. Either they were not there, confusing, or not very helpful.
This is a very god schools with a very good education system. It is a smaller district, so everyone is used to being around each other and you often see your old teachers from other schools. The International Baccalaureate program is very rushed and new, but it is getting better. It is still a great experience and a wonderful school system to be part of.
