MHS is revamping its campus! The school is quite old and has outgrown its buildings. I despised walking across the street to temporary trailer classrooms. Also, the lack of security is worrisome. Construction has begun, so the campus will be more modern and cohesive in the future. Socially, there are still cliques, but not as extreme as the movies. A seemingly great majority of the students are Caucasian and wealthy. MHS administration is good, but not exceptional. A+ for having wellness counselors to promote mental health awareness. There's plenty of clubs and activities for students to be involved in. There are dozens of AP classes, and that is where the competitive students are.
School spirit is very present here, which is good to most but not as much to some. The academics focus on challenging students, though with these great academics comes a major downside. The surrounding area composes of wealthy families who are able to afford being zoned in these neighborhoods, which unfortunately means a large lack of diversity in culture and politics. The student body is mostly right-leaning but it isn't hard to find clubs & places to fit in. Thanks to it being student-led, there are a variety of organizations here (take the Republican club or the Mental Health Ambassadors, who both influenced politicians through community involvement and rallies). The arts, however, are often heavily overshadowed by the athletics, but they are high achieving in what they do. The athletics are also high achieving in most areas and the school rallies up each game with its amazing sense of school spirit in this culture. Memorial is an energetic place with lots of tradition and spirit!
After being homeschooled for the first 3 years of high school, I was ecstatic to go to an accredited big public school like Memorial High School for my senior year. The application process was easy and it was done in a day. The administration and staff were really helpful and very welcoming. As someone with pretty severe anxiety, I have trouble opening up and taking that first step to make a friend. The students were very welcoming. Everyone was really nice and the students were really about helping each other. Overall it was an awesome experience and amazing opportunity to get my feet wet before heading off to college the next year. I felt somewhat unprepared for all that all at once, but I didn't let myself drown in all that anxiety. I figured things out myself like an independent adult. So I guess you could say Memorial High School taught me to be more independent and figure things out for myself!
