The school is average. Okay funding, okay teachers. The teachers are sometimes disorganized and teach according to no visible curriculum, but it is a good school. The kids enjoy learning and are enthusiastic! Not an extremely challenging school though. Great sports programs! Also, it is very diverse there.
Review Memorial High School
I would choose this school again, just because of the experience that I'm getting. I'm only a sophomore, but I have many upper class-men, and freshman friends, and they make high school easy to fit along in. The teachers are great! They help you understand what they are teaching, and they always give us the times and places we can find them if we need help with work, or we just don't understand what we are learning. Everyone at James Madison Memorial High School are there to help us learn, and help us get a good education.
I love this school, first I went to memorial as an exchange student and I was very well accepted, every security or counselor or teacher will help you if you need. All the teachers are nice and inspiring, we have a lot of chances to experience real-life situations or experiments that relate to classes. The students are all very nice too, everyone is very open and acceptive of different races and genders, the school also gives a lot of opportunities to get involved in clubs and meet new people. I would totally choose this school again and take all the same classes, I had a great experience so far!
