I used to go to this school when it first opened. It wasn't ghetto before. It's been years since I last visited the school. I guess it changed a little.

Like most middle schools in San Diego, Monroe Clark Middle School has its fair share of problems. From over crowded classrooms to out dated curriculum, you will find all of that, and all of the other typical middle school problems at this school. A relatively new middle school (1997), it doesn?t have all of the ?falling apart? problems that so many other city schools in the area have. What sets this middle school apart from every other middle school in San Diego is the area in which it serves. It is a ?brave? mission to try and serve the City Heights area, which is known for its graffiti, high crime, and gang activity. This area of town is very poverty stricken, and a school serving this area, especially a year round school such as Monroe Clark Middle School can only improve this community. This school keeps the kids off the streets, out of trouble, and engages them in the learning process through a strong academic curriculum. Even though most of the schools population is made up of English as second language minorities, this school strives to help these children succeed. The City Heights Community couldn?t ask for a better school in their academics, and this school has been breaking all of the expectations (which were slim to none) that were set before the school. The teachers really care about their students. The school counselors are active, and help to keep kids informed, away from gangs and other activity, and encourage students to make smart choices. Monroe Clark Middle School may have its ?troubled kids? but that is too be expected with its student population makeup and the area of town it?s in. Probably the most disturbing thing about this school is the amount of graffiti that ends up on school walls, but again, that?s because of the neighborhood that it?s in, and they work to clean it up as soon as possible. The school maintains a safe environment to the best of their ability, but in a school this size (over 1,500 students), and in this neighborhood (City Heights), you can expect that things can, will, and do happen, but no more or less than they do at other middle schools this day and age.

PROS: Helps kids kids out of gangs and off the streets
CONS: The area of town the school is located in

This school is good if you live near by. But i wouldnt send my child here. Its wayy to ghettto. And the teacing is really bad. The area looks nice though. But children go there to learn so it doesnt matter how it looks, and its dangerous.
