Memorial High School Reviews

Personally I believe that Memorial does a fantastic job preparing student for life out side of high school. Teachers often take time out of their day to make sure you fully understand the materiel. They really want you to succeed and show general concern if you get a bad grade. The social aspect of the school is admirable the diversity at first glance seem lacking but there is a concerable hispanic and asian population. Yes, it is a little click-y and their are a few pretentious students but besides that the student body is enthusiastic and high-spirited and practically everyone is willing to help!

Throughout my recent years at Memorial HS, I was shaped into the person I am today. This is one of the few schools in Texas that prepares you for a university education. Memorial is a vibrant school full of opportunities where you will be taught by the best educators and meet people of different backgrounds! We take pride in who we are during school hours and also, beyond graduation. Here I was taught to type an essay efficiently like if it was a simple walk in the park. I learned integrity and honesty that I carry with me everywhere I go. Memorial is highly talked about because of its generations of students within families that roam the halls. Academically challenging at times but definitely worth it because now as a college student I do not struggle as much as others due to the education I endured. I recommend Memorial HS to all people who qualify because the reward for yourself and your future is there.
Although an older school with updated modifications, the school district is a great support as well as the Booster Club and PTA. Lots of programs to get involved with and the sports teams are very competitive. GPA is based on a weighted grading system so above a 4.0. You can choose from academic classes or AP classes which boost your GPA and class rank. You will be prepared for college. MHS is one of the strongest academic schools with the Spring Branch Independent School District. The counselors offer great resources for college as well as a wellness counselor. The parents are very involved in this school.
