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

Personally, I wasn't at Monroe High for very long since I did running start, but what I did learn I still carry with me today. There had been two different drama teachers while I attended high school there and I learned so much about acting, so much so that my younger brother say how much I enjoyed being taught by them that he also signed up for their classes!
It was an average school. But it was different because of the tight-knit community. Monroe High School is located in the small town of Monroe, where everyone knows everyone. Hearing stories from other schools, I'm thankful for mine because I always felt safe. There weren't ever any serious threats, there weren't any gangs, there weren't any fights, and there wasn't any bullying that I knew of. This is something very hard to acheive for some schools, but somehow everyone got along at our school.
