Average school experience designed to produce employee instead of employers. Typical fights were frequent, abuse of intellectual property was not corrected nor acknowledge.
James Monroe is an excellent school. My daughter took advantage of many opportunities as the other young people. The teachers cared to teach her and she was willing to absorb the information.
