Memorial High School Reviews

Since the start of the high school, I have heard negative things being said about the students, the education, and the teachers, which amazes me. Memorial is not a bad school district, it is a small one. Now that being said, you are going to experience the problems of a small school district. From my observation and experience, Memorial has been great overall. Memorial is a school, and like any school, or any other experience in life, you only get as much out of it as you put in. Yes there are going to be some bad experiences, but that is the high school experience. Nobody has a perfect time in high school, and yeah, if you only focus on the bad then the experience as a whole is going to seem bad. If you put in work and try to have a good time, then Meorial will be a great school.

Overall, I’ve had a relatively pleasant experience at Memorial. Most of the teachers are dedicated and friendly, and the environment for the most part feels supportive and safe. However, there seems to be an emphasis on sports with regards to administration and funding, whereas the arts get sometimes overlooked.
The diversity overall at memorial high school is fairly okay except that there isn't much other ethnicities that attend the school, in other words it's mostly majority that attend memorial and participate in sports. The school is also somewhat accepting for an example they accept sexual orientation but the school has rather a difficulty in accepting minorities that had not grown up with them since childhood or have been adopted or have one majority parent. The school does overall focus too much money which reflects on how the kids accept each other into their group of friends.
