  • Monroe Is An OK School. The School Does Have Very Strict Rules But The Problem Is That The Students Here Are Just Rude And Some Students Here Have
    No Respect For The Teachers And Fellow Classmates And Get A Refferal Everyday Or ISS And Or Suspension And They Really Do Not Care How Rude They Are To People And Most Teachers & Staff Members Here Are Very Unhelpful But Very Nice And One Nice Thing Is That Students Here Are Very Helpful But Staff No Way. And Its The 6th Graders At This School That Have No Respect At All For 7th And 8th Graders In This School. Those Little Brats Are Always Picking On Bigger And Older Students In A Higher Grade And My Friend Is In 7th Grade But Has Only 6th Grade Reading And He Hates Them And Most Students In The School Hate 6th Grade And So Does The Staff.

  • This is the worst school i have ever attended. Very few children in this school have decent respect and dont give others such a hard time. Most of the kids who go here are just plain terrible. Fights, Students who talk during class and do not use their inside voice at all. And worst of all, Most students who attend Monroe only care for themselves and their friends. Most faculty members and a lot of students in this school are also very unhelpful and very rude. Some students are shocked at how these students have no respect at all. And i only have got a few friends who really care about me. Overall most students here are just very rude and very narrow-minded and intolerant. Dont send your kids there at all.

  • Here Is One Thing I Dont Understand. Even Though The School Has Gotten A lot Safer And A lot Better For Students. But Though There Are Bad Kids At This School And When They Get In Trouble They Say "I Dont Care" Which Makes It Look Like A Bad School Until When The Parents Have Showed Up The Bully Aint Got Much To Say. It Is Really Dumb For Kids Who Think They're So Cool And Think They're The Best Actually Try If It Works Out But The Bad Kids Are Losing And Dont Deserve One Bit At All And Some Of The Bad Kids From Last Year Who Still Attend Monroe Have Actually Turned Out To Be Great Friends But Some Students Here Need To Get Along And Stop Being So Mean And Insane.

  • I am not happy with this school at all. Arrogant, Narrow-Minded, Annoying students attend here. Others are just plain terrible and it's horrid. Everyday i have to hear LOUD screaming, Inappropriate language & gestures towards others, Kids who reserve seats for others and while asking for your seat back it just doesn't work at all. Very few kids in this school have total respect and dont give others such a hard time or say anything about them at all. Overall i think this school needs a lot of improvement especially towards how the way they conduct themselves out in public and the kids here need to start littering and so does the staff because i think i am the only one also who only picks up after lazy people who dump trash all over the grounds here and the grounds here aren't clean at all and neither is the school. In the restrooms it literally just stinks in there and kids need to start flushing toilets and start using manners really. that is just no way to treat a school like that. the school next door i use to attend is a much more cleaner school than Monroe.

  • Monroe Middle School Is Possibly The Worst Middle School In South Tampa To Send Your Kids To. LOUD, Out Of Control Students. Boys That Hit Girls And Touch Any Type Of Gender In Any Way They Want To. The Kids At This School Without A Doubt Has No Respect For Themselves Or Their Friends Or Staff. And Still There Are a lot Of Fights Still At This School. At The End Of The Year I Will Be So Glad I'm Leaving This School And Wont Even Bother Stepping Back On Property After That Because Most Kids Who End Up Leaving Monroe Usually Never Step Back On Property At All And Some Wouldn't Even Dare Come Back At All And I'm One Of Them.

  • Monroe has gotten a lot less safe. More fights are being seen, heard of and worst of all violence has gone up pretty good. the students are starting to run their mouths a little more and when it comes to self defense, you cant defend yourself for several reasons at all because one; when you hit a kid it's usually the ones that need it and the ones that need it so much have so much backup and comfort and when you hit them there going to get mad and involved. and the girls here need it more than the boys do. The girls love to run their mouth so much when they get hit by an innocent who's trying to protect him or herself they usually get cursed out, labeled, picked on by the whole school. It's like they want the bad kids to win and hurt the unfortunate and the teachers and some faculty members are extremely mean & unhelpful with terrible attitudes but very few staff members are extremely helpful and nice and do not tolerate such crap from any student. And the reason i enjoy this school because most classes i have dont have snobs in them, but some students and most of them come from my 1st period and is the worst period ive got. The kids are so disrespectful to the teacher and does what is best to eliminate it. And is sometimes a bit loud while at the board.

  • Now i understand the problem. More kids are now experiencing how bad this school is and is spending there time talking about the number of issues most students who attend here have. The school has gotten a lot less safe and more fights, bullying & harassment have increased a lot more and most teachers & staff members who work here are extremely annoying, loud, worst of all go over the limit. Mostly it's the teachers & staff who work here are mostly loud while up at the board and dont lower their voices but the administration doesnt yell at all. The administration is quiet. Great administration but teachers & faculty. Mean And Rude and unhelpful.

  • this school has got some serious problems. the kids are so ridicolous that they love to go around school picking on the innocent and quiet kids who aren't so loud, disruptive, or annoying while passing throughout hallways and alot of physcologial embarrassment happens to very good and they'll go ; " wats up " when you dont know them at all and its dumb and not only that. there doing this in front of huge crowds of punks and others who have no simpathy or home training or respect to those who want a good education and thats not all. they love to sneak behind good & quiet kids and love to frighten them with loud outbursts and think its funny. not only that when there are 2 people who are about to fight most of the school seems to stop what there doing and gather a huge crowd of people to watch a dumb fight and when a staff seems to come along to break it up or prevent the students from fighting kids simply take off and start laughing at the students fighting and go back to normal. its an obvious ridicolous school. and alot of drastic events occur especially behind staffs back and kids should not be scared to report the incidents at all. and another thing is that most harrassment takes place especially after school in front of the building and never be alone at all. always have a friend with you and you wont expierience any problems beacause all of this happens to who are alone and afraid to be out in public and do this when no staff is looking or unseen on school property and when most of the kids have left. and most of the inmature student who attend here are always up to something but always tell a staff and be extremely cautious around the bad students beacause they will start trouble.

  • Monroe Middle School Has Had Its Ups And Downs. I Dont Know Which One. The First Time In 6th Grade It Had Its Downs. I Had Suffered The Worst Experiences In 6th Grade And At The Time There Was A lot Of Bullying Going Around School But Very Few Students Have Gone Through Monroe Without Getting Picked On. I Was The Unfortunate One Who Suffered Instead. This Year Is Different Even Though This Year Has Gone Through Some Huge Changes I Have Experienced Less Experiences But A Few And The Principal And Ap's Has Done A Great Leadership Around The Whole School. It Has Been A lot Safer For Students To Attend. There Has Been More Learning Has Hit Amongst Most Students. So Far They Have Gotten Rid Of Most Of The Bad Students There Yet.
    There Are Some Of Them Still Left And This Year Has Been A Little Tough For Them To Go Through. Apparently They Are Stepping Up For Innocents And Bad Ones Are Losing. Last Year Different Story. Bad Ones Loved It Last Year And Good Ones Hated It Last Year. Now This Year Good Ones Love It And Bad Ones Hate It. There Are Some Bad Bullies Still
    Roaming Around There And What They Need To Do Is Get Rid Of Them A lot Faster.

  • Monroe Middle School Has Had Its Ups And Downs. Most Of It Has Now Had Its Ups. After When The 6th Grade Ended Teachers/Staff/Administration Are Stepping Up For The Innocent Students This Year And I Am One Of The Innocents That Were Bullied In 6th Grade. Now That Im In 7th Grade The School Has Gotten A lot Safer And All The Bad Bullies From Last Year Seem To Have Gone To Another School Which Seems To Have Kids Like Them And Most Of Them Have Gone To Blake High School, Stewart Middle, Robinson High, Jefferson, Or Madison Middle. But There Are Some Bullies Here And The Staff And Administration Are Tackling The Not So Behaved Unruly Students And This Year Is Not Working Out For The Bad Kids Like Last Year. It's Like Last Year The Bad Kids Loved This School And The Good Ones Hated It And This Year Bad Kids Hate It And Good Kids Love It. THANKS For Turning This School Around Thanks

  • Monroe Has Its Ups And Downs. Most Of It Has Its Downs. I Faced A lot Of Bullying In 6th Grade And Was Constantly Dealing With The Prejudice And When Using Public Restrooms Here. There Absolutely Filthy With Gang City Infiliations Writin On Walls And When Using Them Kids Constantly Keep Labeling You Names Especially If You Dont Know Them At All And They Really Need To Find A Place For All The Bullies And Since There Is A lot Of Bullying At This School The Bad Definitely Outnumbers The Good.
