Monroe High School Reviews

I just graduated last year and had a very positive experience at Monroe. The academics are quite good for a smaller school and the admin are very supportive of parents and students who want to push themselves farther than the traditional curriculum allows for. The social scene is generally good but sometimes cliquey, as you might expect in a small town. However, I've heard that this coming year will see the school switch to a trimester schedule, which I believe is a big mistake. It will really mess up the schedules of any student hoping to take AP courses as well as band/choir classes. I hope that administrators listen to all the complaints and decide against this poor decision.

The school provided me with everything a typical High School does. I got the pep rally on homecoming, the poorly themed prom and the classes to fill up my day. I didn't learn real life skills. The school wasn't emotionally supportive or involve.They spent one day out of the year to confront the school about how bad bullying is, and coming from a city that was deeply effected from a suicide you would think they would find it of more importance. There was favoritism for the athletes that excel in the sport setting. Certain sports got clear favoritism because a teacher or school board members student was on the team. There was no sense of community. The male dominated sports had greater attention and more support. When one tried to bring attention to the inequality of sports attendance the idea shut down right away. There is clear ignorance and no one seems to see a problem with it.
As a student, I think that the school as a whole is pretty good. The activities, clubs, and class choices are numerous, and the majority of the faculty is a good mixture of friendliness, willingness to help and answer questions, and necessary discipline.

The academics are often simple, but not always engaging for students. Whenever I am in a non-Honors Core Class, I see students (myself included on occasion) nodding off or otherwise not paying attention. While this could just be students being teenagers on our part, I think that the lessons teachers give could use some more humor in order to keep students' attention.
