I graduated from Monroe High School with the class of 2019. I thought it was a wonderful school and my learning there gave me the tools and knowledge to succeed in college. The teachers are all super friendly and they do a great job of educating their students. There are plenty of clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities for any student to find something they like.

Great education, loved the teachers. School building has some issues to repair, but all in all a great place to go to school. Was in Jr Optimist Club which gave me a great pride in volunteering, and helping my community. Going to the various sports to watch them compete was fun. The dances were always so nice. Highly Recommend this school.
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.
