In The Community

A real-world education means getting out into the real world, starting in our community. The administration, faculty, and students live the idea of giving back. From youngsters who deserve a bright future to neighbors who need a helping hand.

Monroe Cares  

Beyond school spirit, Monroe students are dedicated to improving the lives of our neighbors with days of caring, weekends of giving and service projects the year round, coordinated by the Honors Program. Work on projects like helping at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen, improving the environment or mentoring kids. 

The community service weekends motivated me to make the world a better place.
