At Monroe Woodbury there are many positives. The music program is fantastic and I have been able to participate in both choir and orchestra. There is a vast amount of AP classes available and many honors classes offer college credit. There are many electives to choose from in a number of different fields. For me the most helpful electives were the ones based around video production and editing. There are a number of brilliant teachers who know exactly what they're talking about when they teach it and are interested in what they discuss. This creates a better experience for the students. Amidst the positives, of course there are many areas that can be improved upon. One area is the bias in sports tryouts and application based clubs. Another area is the excessive censorship of the school's morning TV show. The show is run by students who take the tv class and administration often blocks skits and jokes that aren't directly about school which limits the creativity of these students.

Monroe-Woodbury is the epitome of disgusting bullying standards. They have fantastic range of classes, giving the student a wide range of paths they can choose. Monroe-Woodbury’s administration is another story. The highschool has had at least 5 principles in the last 5 years. They employ imbeciles and expect anything positive to get done. Girls who decide to express themselves in even the slightest are shut down and belittled to the max, so they never have the confidence to try again. Students who are top in athletics and academics are they apple of the districts eye. They are treated with the utmost importance, while the students trying to find themselves are tossed aside and bullied, without a prayer in the world to get help. Monroe-Woodbury is one of those school districts that seem perfect on the outside, but they’ve been falling apart since it was founded in 2001.
Teachers are good at what they do and truly care about the students. Poor upper administration, poor control of students. Prominent in school drug and tobacco use among students. School promotes anti-bullying policy, but fails to punish bullies. Favoritism towards senior class is extreme, often cutting into class time and reinforcing the superior and aggressive attitudes of upperclassmen. Wide selection of classes for students to choose from, good art department. The school would be nothing without the efforts of individual teachers who want to see a change for the better.
