I am a senior at Maury High School and throughout my years at this school I can honestly say that Maury is an excellent schoolfor academics. Being a student here, I’ve grown a lot of close relationships with the staff and administrative team there! I love how Maury is determined to make sure that their students have the best learning experience there. There is always someone to help and Maury is by far the best high school in Norfolk, Virginia. Some changes that I can see that would greatly impact Maury is the renovation of the building because it is a very old and historical building. Overall, Maury High School is an amazing school and I’ve had an excellent experience so far being enrolled as a student here!

My experience at Maury High School has been great . I’ve grown to meet a lot of new people and I have experienced a lot of new things. I love how Maury wants their students to strive for academic excellence! The staff and administrators here at my school is excellent! Maury High School has a great reputation here in Norfolk! Some changes that I’d hope to see is more activities with the students and some different programs that can actually be beneficial to the students such as job programs. Another change that I’d hope to see is the renovation of the building because it’s a very old building, but that doesn’t take away how excellent the school itself is !
I have been at Maury for 2 years and am in love with the sports teams here. I have participated in 2 sports (volleyball and softball) where volleyball remained 2nd best team in the district. Most teachers are more than willing to work with students; however, many do not prepare correctly for college. There is a wide variety of student life, so nobody gets left out. Overall, it’s a great school!
