    "As a parent whose child attended JM for all 4 years I can say it is not a bad school. Class sizes are small and most of the teachers are invested in their students doing well. However, the main issues I found was the terrible administration, heavy presence of a Title 1 population and the fact that the school seems to almost encourage and do nothing about the heavy partying and alcohol/drug culture dominated by the wealthy white students who live in "downtown" Fredericksburg and the boys Football and Lacrosse teams both of which seem to be a haven for these types of activities."

    "JM Was a terrible school for me going from Prince William County to JM was like going backwards I felt like I was repeating a year of school and they say you need language classes to graduate and I kept getting taken out of spanish. MY freshmen year was fine I had great teachers my sophomore year not so much the students disrupted class there was one administrator who helped through the majority of that year but there was another that was always picking at me for missing school (which was for medical reason I guess he didn't really believe that) I had some great friends that helped me catch up but it wasn't enough for me to stay sorry everyone else is saying its great I just didn't have that great of an experience there!"

    "We decided to build a home in the Fredericksburg City school district specifically because of the quality of the city's school system. Class size was a key factor in our decison to send our children to James Monroe High School as was the over all size of the school--half or less of the surrounding suburban high schools. All three of our children have attended or graduated from JMHS and were recruited for college athletics and academic progams. With the beautiful facilities, advanced/AP courses, quality programs in the arts and highly competitive (multple state championships) athletic programs, James Monroe High School feels like a top notch private school. The testing rating depicts a large Title 1 population, not the quality of instruction."

    "I came to JMHS last year. I transferred schools between freshman and sophomore year and I've never transferred or moved anywhere in my life. I was so scared and nervous but after the first day I took a tour of the beautiful school and saw everything it had to offer... I couldn't wait to start school! Of course the first couple days were rough, but I still began to love it. I came from Orange County High School, and seeing the difference was BREATH-TAKING. The academics, sports, and performing arts were/are phenomenal! Nothing's better than having a new built school with a GREAT football team. The teachers were so nice and very well educated, I learned the material and it actually STAYED in my head. Usually I just remember for ten minutes and I forget later. But my first year experience here was so wonderful, I've never had so much pride in my school. I love how diverse it is and well organized. There's so much options of how to get more involved like clubs and sports. I'm starting Junior year on my 16th birthday this year and nothing says happy birthday more than starting another year at my favorite school in the whole wide world. I'm so blessed to be at such a great school."
