  • Awesome School. My entire family, including many generations of my family, has attended MHS and they all loved it. Not too high end not too low end but “Just right” and comfortable. I'm so proud to have attended NHS. Class of 1994! "Gatta Go Gatta Go.. Class of 94!"

  • This is one of the best overall schools in the area in regards to fair and equal treatment of all students. The social makeup is bar none. I wouldn't send my kid to no other school district in the area if they paid me. Happy parent. And yes I like the sports programs as well.

  • This school is terrible. They put more emphasise and value on their football and other sports than in actual education.
    No wonder the children from Monrovia HS suffer, as they get no decent education, due to a new Principle who cares more from making money from sports sponsorships than getting children into college.

  • Their staff is horrible! when it came to my child's semester class i could not speak to any one, but when my child owed money on a book i couldnt avoid them! the overall school is ok but the staff needs the world's help!!!
