Monroe Township High School Reviews

As a current senior at MTHS, I am astonished that there are so many overtly positive reviews about this school. There are negatives as well as positives. I have met many teachers here who have been able to help me through high school, and have changed my viewpoints on many topics. These are the teachers who genuinely helped me learn. On the contrary, I have witnessed several teachers who, to bluntly put it, should one hundred percent not be teaching at any school. Some could care less about the education of students, and others just cross the line, and act completely unprofessional around students. Some teachers, for example, sit in on students gossiping about others and joins the conversation. The reasons these adults are in our school is to create a professional environment and provide examples on how to behave in professional environments. This, however, is unable to happen. The school is also very overcrowded, and has exceeded the student capacity.

The classes in Monroe Township Highschool are unlike any classes I've taken or seen. The resources available to teachers and students is amazing. Everyone helps one another, whether you're a freshman, senior, faculty, or parent. The school building is new and is by far the best school in the state because of the faculty. The teachers, counselors, and principals do anything and everything possible to help their students and their work is not overlooked by the administration because of the yearly teacher awards. The clubs and activities allow students like myself to become leaders and express our opinions openly and professionally. The sport teams are also great, as well as the lunch and diversity. This school is by far the best school I know and I am thankful to be a honorary student of the class of 2020
Monroe Twp is a very competitive high school and the class size has been increasing every year. Due to the large student body, there is a lot of academic competition. The school is newly built and is truly a state of the arts facility with very modern design. There are 2 large multipurpose gyms and there is a training room as well as a performing arts center. The facility is very clean and well maintained. I am a high school senior at Monroe Township High School. The amount of classes that are available to students is incredible. There are classes ranging from culinary arts to honors business organization and management. There are a lot of programs and a LOT of opportunities for the students who know what they want to do once they graduate. If students are not quite sure it is the perfect place to learn about a wide variety of things as well. Honors and AP level classes are provided for students who are looking for challenges.
