Here is your opportunity to share your own comments on the proposed Monroe School Name Change.
I, and many in my family, attended Monroe. In research, i found an entry for Monroe, circa 1900 (at Western and Goodrich). Monroe has been a part of the West 7th community for well over 100 years. Further, I have never heard it called James Monroe, and could find no reference to James Monroe school. And, to the best of my recollection, over the door was the inscription "Monroe High School". In conclusion,1) Monroe is a part of this community and the name should stand. 2) There is nothing i have ever heard, and could not find, reference to James Monroe school. Always Monroe.
