Maryville High School Reviews

I transferred to MHS at the start of my junior year. Coming from a school with only 400 students to a school with 1,500 student I was very scared. My first day the students were all welcoming and wanting to reach out and help me. I was introduced to many different people and they all accepted me. The teachers were all very welcoming and helped me when I looked lost and made me feel at home. To any new student who is thinking about attending MHS I would suggest it to them because of the surroundings and the people. Everyone at the school makes you feel at home and its very comforting. The thing I would like to see a change in is the parking situation. There isn't enough parking spots for all the students. Therefor, students have to park on the streets and to me that can be dangerous. I had to park on the street my junior year and everyday I would dread having to walk in and cross the street because of people speeding by.

I think that Maryville High School is great for preparing their students for their future responsibilities both at various colleges and in the work force. The administration does a fantastic job with helping students with any concerns, and most teachers on staff are incredible at engaging with the students. The sports are also a huge attraction for the student body. The student body at Maryville has always been the kind that strive to be the best they can be, and that is in no small art due to the faculty. Maryville High school has always been the kind of school that has balanced both the need for continuous academic improvement and the need for students to be prepared for real life experiences.
Maryville High School has most definitely prepared me for college. They push very hard with academics and want their students to take lots of upper level classes. However, I think they push a little too hard sometimes and as a result, students are often very stressed out because of the workload. Personally, I've felt a great deal of stress from AP classes and the amount of homework. I've had to back off from taking as many AP classes as I probably could just because I wouldn't have had nearly enough time in a single day to complete all the work necessary. There's also not a whole lot of diversity, and there's some cliques as far as popular versus non-popular people. I've made some good friends here, though, and I'm grateful that I've made it all the way through high school.
