I like the intimate setting of Monona Grove High School. The teachers really care about you and want to see you succeed in your future academic endeavors. There are more than enough ways to stay involved no matter what your interests are. The sports are very good, we have lots of extremely talented athletes. The school is predominantly white priveledge with a lot of wealthy caucasians which is occasionally inhibiting, but is an acknowledgable aspect nonetheless.

Monona Grove is like most other high schools and will get many kids to college. The lunch food is disgusting like most other public high schools. The textbooks are decently new and undamaged and the school has a decent number of AP classes, but not many in the science departments. Many of the students are stuck up and are spoiled children, but some of the students are nice and respectful. The teachers do care about academics and making sure that their students succeed. The administration is slightly overbearing but overall the school and the school district is very good for the Madison area.
I have had a great experience at Monona Grove. Throughout high school, I was involved in a variety of clubs and sports. Monona Grove has a great staff that is always there for students when needed. As the school has gotten bigger, more classes have been added to interest students in what they may want to do after high school. Monona Grove School District made me the best student and human being I could be.
