I attended Monroe for only two years and I loved every moment of it. It is not often that you go to schools and you feel as if you're at home, or you are family with everyone that walks the halls. Being at this school was amazing and it gave me a different look at life. It taught me that the small things in life means just as much as the big things. Most kids do not want to go to school because they don't like it, or because they feel out of place. At Monroe, every one matters and the people there makes this known.

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.
