At the Monroe school we are committed to helping students learn in a safe, nurturing environment. Our classrooms are design to ignite ingenuity within our students and allow them to explore their interests at ease. In our computer lab our students have the ease of safely surfing the web, developing the school web page, graphic designing, practicing their keyboarding skills, researching topics for class or reports, or just enjoying a friendly game of solitaire, chess or many school appropriate games. Our library is inviting and cozy enough for students to enjoy a relaxing book or research from one.
Monroe is equipped with space on grounds in which all related services, such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, clinical counseling and remedial reading and math resources can be performed. Students are exposed to a wonderful art curriculum through direct involvement in the aesthetic improvement of our school. They work directly with their teacher to create various projects throughout the school, allowing students to express themselves through their artwork. Our fitness room is equipped with a variety of equipment to help motivate a healthy regular exercise regime.
