Monroe Area High School should not be shoved under a rug because it is in a small town. The administration and staff is truly amazing. As a student I have been inspired by my teachers, and will never let go of the impact they have had on me. The AP program is brilliant and growing insanely fast. Some of the rules may be annoying to students, but I know that they are truly keeping us safe. The students and the staff is very diverse and always prepared to help and talk about colleges. There are a wide array of clubs that are very fulfilling and exciting. Overall, as a a current senior at MAHS, I can honestly look back at my four years spent here and not think of anything that truly "ruined" my time here. Instead, I can look back fondly on all the great memories spent here. My teachers have inspired me and helped me prepare for college. I am now confident and ready for the future!
There aren't a whole lot of extracurricular options for students. There are the basic clubs such as fbla, fccla, and anchor club and then there are a few different clubs for students who have different interests, such as tsa and STEM club. other than that there aren't any options. The school doesn't receive enough funding to hire teachers. There aren't foreign language clubs and there are only two Spanish teachers so it doesn't provide a lot of diversity. Many students complain that there isn't more foreign language options. The art club struggles because there isn't enough funding, and the art teacher pays for things with personal money, so there is never enough supplies. There hasn't ever been a history club or any clubs related to that which a lot of students complain about that as well, including me. I was never involved with clubs in high school because aside from agricultural or business clubs like fbla, fccla and ffa there aren't any options for students with other interests.
During my four years at this school I had some positive experiences as well as some negative. During my first two years my counsellor gave me wrong information about classes and told me that I did not need certain classes to graduate and then came back to me in my junior year and told me that I did need to have those certain classes to graduate. This was pretty inconvenient and seemed unprofessional given that she had told me and was sure at the time that those classes were not required, however it didn't mess up my ability to graduate. I did have positive experiences with the teachers and other students that I met during my time at high school, most of the teachers that I had were genuinely interested in their job and made personal relationships with their students and helped their students. So I guess I would rate my overall experience in this school pretty good, and I think if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't mind attending this school again but I probably wouldn't choose it myself, due to lack of funding which led to many different classes being taken out, such as classes that many students would have wished to take because it fit their career path, and lack of clubs that would have encouraged more participation with students.
