I absolutely loved my experience! The people I met and the times I shared changed me. The school spirit was something I have never seen at any high school before. As far as I know were the only one that go out in the hallways every week to sing our school song! And with absolute pride of course. Every person that’s come to Male has let it been known because it’s a good name to stand by. Now I’m glad that I’ll be able to say that I went to Male High School, one of Kentucky’s oldest and most spirited schools.

Male has some amazing teachers (which outweigh the few not-so-amazing ones) that completely prepare you for college! The atmosphere at Male is like no other and there’s always a sense of family among the students, even if you don’t like everyone there. The homework and the tests are hard, but it will all be worth it when you get to college and you feel like the smartest kid in the room. As many times as I’ve complained about things over the course of my four years at Male, it is truly The High School.
This school has changed. There are teachers here who don't really care about giving you a good education. There are some who don't understand how to teach the content well. Some of the teachers here care more about what you're wearing and getting in trouble, then how you're actually doing in school. Even today a science teacher said and I quote "Another boy down", he got in trouble for having in one earring. They'll write you for so much stuff, that shouldn't even matter, such as: earrings on males, what type of jeans you wear, leggings, sweatpants, jackets, lanyards,etc. There's a point where it gets kind of ridiculous.
