Monroe Central is my home school. I have been here since kindergarten and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! All the teachers are so ready to see you in the morning and ready to teach. One thing I would change about Monroe Central Jr/Sr. High School is diversity. It is a rural school, with only about 500 students and not much diversity.

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.
