What I loved about Monroe High School is how the faculty and staff genuinely wanted to see everyone be successful throughout their high school career! The principals and teachers stayed on students, continuously helped out students and encouraged students to be the greatest person that they could be. Monroe High School prepares students for not only college, but the adult life in general. The staff ensures that before any student is able to graduate, they also make sure that the student is ready for real life. What I would like to see improve with Monroe High is more student involvement as much as the teachers put in.

My experience at Monroe High school was quite average, seeing as it is the only high school i have ever attended, i can say with full confidence, that Monroe is a nice place. The atmosphere is of an old yet proud institution that strives to leave a legacy in it's students. The Golden Tornadoes (the mascot) are prevalent everywhere. Students are proud to go to Monroe, it has a deep heritage and there is genuine respect among administrators and students, rapport is high among all, even I an insignificant drop in the pond became well known through my constant interaction with my peers and dedicated teachers and administrators, but also my achievements STAR student, honor roll, etc. Monroe is a nice place, even though it has trivial challenges like attendance, or the deterioration of a decades old building, it has a well knit relationship with everyone in Albany, Ga and I highly recommend it once.
Monroe high school is a great place to make friends, and the academics there are superior. I enrolled there as a junior, but in the short time that I was there I gained life long friends, opportunities that I never thought I would ever get, and positions that I didn't would be mine in the short amount of time I was there. All in all Monroe High School is a great place to be and it will bring amazing opportunities, even those you didn't expect to ever get.
