The student culture and energy is unlike anywhere else. There are no recognizable cliches, only students who do many diverse activities celebrating one another. The academics are excellent and the teaching is outstanding. I have learned from many teachers who I believe have changed my life. Monument Mountain is a very special place where students are encouraged to truly examine themselves as individuals, question their values and beliefs, and to challenge themselves to do better. Sports, academics, and performing arts each offer a place where students can explore their potential and feel like they belong, all while making lasting memories in a community that knows what's important.

Monument is a small high school with a beautiful campus, two football fields, multiple soccer fields and a very nice track as well. From the front of the school you can see Monument Mountain and from the back you can see the Berkshire mountains. The faculty is filled with wonderful teachers and staff that care about every student. I personally have multiple adults in the school who I can talk to about anything with, school related or not. Creating relationships with the teachers there is an east task and still have teachers from freshman year who I can talk to. All the students are filled with school spirit and don't discriminate against anymore. For my four years there there were no were real fights and I never felt unsafe a day I was enrolled. It is a great place to feel at home and to be if you love nature which surrounds the whole School.
The school as a community is connected, people are kind to each other. Teachers care about their students and there's a connection between the two. The issue seems to be more with the faculty. They often won't consider student opinions. The structural issues with the school are apparent as well. The asbestos in the building is to the point where they can't hire painters since sanding would cause the asbestos would get into their lungs. They also previously turned down multiple multimillions offers from the state for renovations.
