My experience at Memorial Early College High School (MECHS) has been amazing! The students, teachers, and staff are all dedicated and strive to support each other in every way possible. I have received ample support from the staff here throughout my high school experience. We are a STEM, New Tech, and PBL school. There are many clubs and organizations that I have participated in during my time here. This is a small school, so one on one help with teachers is constantly an option! I wouldn't have changed anything about this experience, because every experience has helped me grow as a student and as a person.

Applying to this school was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I would consider the faculty and student body definitely more of a family than a community. Here at MECHS, us as students our pushed to the best of our abilities to succeed. What keeps me and the rest of my peers motivated is the Associates Degree we will be receiving our senior year from St.Phillip’s College. I’ve learned so far by attending this school is that with hard work anything is possible!
MECHS is like a family, but closer. You build great relationships with all of the teachers regardless of if you take their classes or not. The staff all care deeply about your academic success and well being. Your teachers push you to do your best and encourage you to produce innovative and intriguing products in their Project Based Learning style. In projects, you have an incredible amount of control in your groups and can even fire teammate that are just looking to ride your coat tales. The entire school is tailored to your success and will do everything in its power to help you graduate with an Associates degree (sixty college credit hours)
