I transferred to Monroe Central my junior year and I honestly wish I would've transferred earlier. Monroe Central is a small school, but it is a like a family. Everyone is like family, we all support eachother with the community and education. The teachers are outstanding, they care so much and are willing to do anything to help the students. I am very comfortable at Monroe Central, I feel very safe. Monroe Central is a very welcoming and postitive environment, and I believe that any "type" of person would fit in!

Monroe Central is a pretty good and reliable school overall. Its teachers are very nice and helpful, although some would rather let the students teach themselves the material. The office staff and the guidance counselor are extremely helpful as well. The sports are very competitive for a smaller sized school, and the two gymnasiums are in great condition. The food is the worst part about the school. The school corporation seems to be in great shape financially, but it appears that it has been spending on unnecessary items.
I just moved to this school about a year ago and I can say one thing for sure, the bullying here is out of control. You can tell the office and the teachers and they will talk to the bullier, but they won´t do much to stop it. Next, in some of the classes, we use as study halls instead of learning. Some of the teachers even skip steps in the material we are supposed to be learning. The community, again, I would say is the worst part. Most of the people in the school judge others for the smallest things and people try to hide themselves and try to fit in because people are that judgemental.
