I am former student and I have to say my experience at Monroe was far from great. This school has great academic opportunities, however it is too overcrowded and their is a lack of teachers that are inspiring and motivating. LAUSD needs to build more schools and downsize the classrooms!

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
