Martin Luther King Jr. High School Reviews

When I attended Martin Luther King Jr High School, I hade the high school experience of a life time. My favorite part of course, was being part of the High School band program. There I played Flute, became Drum Major my junior and senior years, and enjoyed every bit of it to the fullest. However, when I was not engaging in band activities, science class was always my favorite. From the car, boat, and plane races in physics, to the cat dissection in anatomy (Cats are my favorite animal and I still had fun), science class was always a new adventure. Now, although no high school is perfect and mine may have had its flaws, I honestly can not say anything about my high school stood out as needing change or improvement. Hope every generation after me has just as great of an experience as I did. GO Wolves!
Review Martin Luther King Jr. High School
King High School is a beautiful campus located in a nice neighborhood. The school has nice classrooms, a large gym, open space and grounds. I enjoyed attending this high school. The teachers and counselors are caring and really try to help you succeed. I am part of the AVID program which helps prepare students for college and I love it!
I felt very safe at Martin Luther King High School, and rarely faced any bullying or prejudice. This created a very comfortable learning environment. However, one thing that bothered me was the high intensity competition between students. My stress levels were very high in my last two years high school. I wish the school will create a system in which students do not have to fight other students to have a good ranking in school. An education system in which a student works hard for themselves would be greatly beneficial.
