Memorial High School Reviews

Edmond Memorial is a good opportunity for students everywhere and a new way to have a great four years in high school. There are many new people to meet every day to get to know. Everyone is a friend which makes our high school a family. Also, the teachers are friendly, but they need to work on how some of their teachers teach students. Most students are not easily taught. I believe making school more entertaining will help students to want to learn and to want to become more educated. Keeping students wanting to learn would change more of the learning atmosphere and make them want to go to school. Overall, Memorial Highschool is a great school, but there are certain learning aspects that could be improved.

I love the family atmosphere at Edmond Memorial. Every event feels like a family event. Every activity is well attended by the student body and parents alike. The arts are very well supported. The teachers are incredible, and genuinely care about their students education. So many teachers pour in so many extra hours for their students, and they don't get anything for it. They just do it because they love what they do and they care. The student body annually raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for a charity that the student council has very carefully selected. Tons of alumni come back every year for the final assembly where we reveal the amount of money raised, and it is so fun to see how many people still love EMHS, even so many years later. There are even many teachers who are EMHS alumni! I love Memorial, and I am so incredibly thankful to go to the school that I do.
It feels like every year half of the graduating class from Memorial comes out with a sense of pride and the other half comes out with shame and regret of not taking online classes. I was part of the half that walked out of those halls with shame. During my years at Edmond Memorial, I was consistently bullied, I did not learn much, and I came out feeling worse than when I went in as a naive 8th grader. If I learned anything from my four years at Memorial, it was tolerance. I learned to just tolerate when a teacher is not teaching you and to teach yourself. I learned to just tolerate the people who are physically bullying you because administration did not want to intervene. I learned to tolerate and that is about it.
