    "Monroe School is an amazing school full of talented teachers/staff and students eager to learn. We are thrilled that we finally have a fantastic principal! Justin Horne started last year after teaching 5th grade for many years at another Hinsdale elementary school. He not only cares about the staff, but knows all of the students (and most parents) by name. This is such a switch from the previous principal who unfortunately is now at the District Office. Monroe has an excellent PTO and involved parents, so you can volunteer as much or as little as you choose. After having children at Monroe for 10+ years I feel like we are finally back on the right track. Now we just need the District office to outline the new Common Core curriculum that is appropriate for all learning levels."

    "The school has great potential but it is severly limited by the new principal. She is driven mostly by her desire to move up to the district level and succeed not by her desire to develop the children.The teachers are paralyzed and frustrated. Parents are not impressed. I would not move to this school while this principal is in place. Look at Madison or the Lane"

    "Ignorance and hubris is a dangerous combo.. defines the current princliple perfectly, (awful and staff doesnt like her) but what makes this school run smoothly are the very competent tenured teachers who know the students well. Very active caring parents (possibly to a fault) raise significant funds to keep the school in top techinal shape. Have three kids that have gone through. Parents have a rep. as petty and gossip, which could be worse than other schools. Overall though great experience. Arguably the best elem. school in town, but all of D181 needs to revamp gifted program. Hopefully this school will get a break and get a good principle!"

    "The teachers are very dedicated and competent. However, the new principal is in way over her head. Ignorance and hubris is a dangerous combination. There are quite a number of parents that are withdrawing their children from Monroe because of the difficulty dealing with her."
