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.
The teachers here teach well, but they do not care to engage the student or make sure they are actually taking information in. A lot of our students come from hard backgrounds and teachers don't take that into account.
