My attendance to MHS was a very important time in my life. I learned so much about myself and about the world around me. My education there was very good I would say. I took the ACT a few years after graduation and I still remembered most of the things that were on the test, which would mean they must have done a great job teaching me! The location and the environment of the school is about the same as your typical high school, even though it was next door to a maximum security prison. However I, as a student, felt very safe there and they made sure that I did. The teachers were amazing and really cared about their students. Overall an amazing high school experience!

I will be starting my senior year at Monroe High School in the fall of 2019. The past three years at this school have been full of fun memories I'll keep forever. I love how much school spirit we have! Every football game is packed with students dressed up in our school colors and cheerfully supporting our team. The academic aspect of MHS is also great, as the teachers challenge you to be curious while teaching us important lessons. There are so many classes to choose from and so many teachers to support you along the journey of high school. I love how each student has different interests and talents, and we can learn from each other and try new things. Overall Monroe High School is a great environment for kids to explore new things, find their passions, and prepare for the exciting opportunities of the future1
Monroe High School has introduced me to friends that I can relate to in ways that I haven't been able to before. The teachers are mostly very intelligent and know what they're talking about, and a good majority of succeed well in teaching. Monroe High School offers me many ways to delve into rigorous classes and classes that capture my interest, and has a wide range of sports to choose from. Their clubs are also very good, but I do wish that there were more STEM-based clubs for those who want to go into academic professions that aren't just robotics or computer science. The administration is always there for when you need them, but sometimes they aren't as useful as you need them to be. However, every single teacher and staff member cares immensely about your passions and getting you into college or preparing you for the real world.
