A STEM and Project Lead the Way School

School Overview

We are a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and Project Lead the Way school. All of the faculty, staff, and students at Albert F. Monroe Magnet Middle School are focused on academic success in a wide variety of subjects. We are also committed to making our campus a safe and inviting place for all by providing a variety of extracurricular activities.

True to our focus, we are making quite a name for ourself in science, engineering, and mathematics, with students bringing home a record number of trophies and cash awards from local science competitions year after year.

Dedicated students can take part in Monroe’s Math/Science Magnet Program, which features an accelerated course of study emphasizing technology, science, and algebra.

Many Magnet students are also a part of MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Achievement), a statewide college preparation program in which students complete projects and enter math/science competitions.

All Monroe students are held up to high academic standards. In the past, Monroe students have demonstrated their academic ability by making a 40-point gain on the state’s Academic Performance Index—far beyond their state target of 10 points.

Parents and Students

Parents Empowering Parents (PEP) is a resource to assist local PTA leaders to carry out an effective parent education and involvement program. Each chapter is based on one of the six National PTA Standards for Parent Involvement.

This guide contains information and ideas to help promote PTA leadership to build strong home-school partnerships, and it assists parents with techniques to use in supporting their children's efforts in school, while enhancing their own parenting skills in working with their own children.

In order for students to have the best possible experience at Monroe, it’s vital that their parent or guardian be as involved in their school and after school programs as possible.

These guides help parents of all different kinds in all different situations. They can help families prepare for the first day of school, explain how parents can get involved, give suggestions on how parents can help with homework, and more.

Parents are always encouraged to contact us if they have questions on how to get involved with our local PTA, or if they have a specific question about getting more involved with the school.

Special Programs

Monroe Middle School offers a wide range of clubs and extracurricular activities for students. We believe that when our students participate in sports and other extra programs, they are learning valuable skills they can apply to their future academic and professional careers.

Some of the activities that are offered to our students include Student Council, Chess Club, Computer Club, Algebra Institute, after-school tutoring, Gifted and Talented Education (GATE), National Junior Honor Society, Drill “Steppers” Team, basketball, football, soccer, and cheerleading.Students have access to the school’s state-of-the-art computer lab for school projects.

For electives, they can choose from art, chorus, drama, speech, instrumental music, strings, music appreciation, reading, and woodshop.

Monroe students can look forward to their options for extracurriculars to keep expanding and diversifying as time goes on. We are always brainstorming on how we can offer new opportunities to our students in order to teach them skills and techniques that will continue to benefit them long after they leave our hallways.
