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.
Memorial has amazing staff, teachers & students. The teachers strive to help you by being there before and after school everyday and even communicate with you on weekends for anything you need for your assignments. I really appreciate this as a student. I went to a different school and district my freshman year and my teachers were not as helpful and on top of things as my teachers in the spring branch school district. What a difference they have made. The district also is sooooo involved with their student and parents. My mom gets emails almost everyday from my school about updates on programs & the school. Spring branch truly focuses on their students 110%. The district and my school are always having meetings about college prepareness, anti bullying, anti drugs ect. I’m so appreciative of my school and all it does for us students. Thanks MHS
