Mays High School Reviews
I started my education career in a predominantly black elementary school. After completing elementary I shifted towards a predominantly white school. I was then lead to Benjamin Elijah Mays where I completed my final years. Id say that although I face much adversity Mays helped me develop a sense of culture. The predominantly white middle school I went to had a positive and negative impact on me in a manner that I wasn't able to love myself. I faced racism and toughed decisions. Thankfully, I was able to regain focus on myself and remain true to who I initially was by attending Mays High-school.
Considering the area the school was in, it was pretty good school. It had regular problems any other high school would have, but it was five times worst. Teachers are inappropriate to students and vice versa, drug problems and fighting as well. Sports programs are great, fine arts programs ignored along with JROTC. Known as, "The best school APS has to offer."
Mays High School is a great school to go to if you are a lover of the arts, sports, and your community. I am a senior at Mays who is getting prepared to graduate. They make sure that you are well taken care of ,and that you are on top of things as far as school and life. They prepare you for the real world step-by-step. I'm glad to be apart of Mays. It is where I faced challenges, defeated my fears, and had the best times of my life!
