Memorial High School has a vibrant environment. It is filled with bright students and athletes that are competitive, out-going, and intellectual. Most teachers go out of their way to help you with extra advice and tutoring. Something that can change is having a better facilitated working environment. The school is run-down and compact. The people would be working at a more efficient rate.

becoming a mustang was one of the best decisions of my life. Being on the memorial swim team really rounded me as a human being. Not only did being on a team teach me how to work hard for the things that I really want in order to achieve them, it taught me how with team work, nothing is impossible. Over the past four years that I have been affiliated with the memorial swim team, I have established and created memories that no one else will be able to be apart of except for those on the team. With being on the team, not only did I make friendships that will last a lifetime, I made incredible bonds with people I would have never thought I would become great friends with. I am glad to consider my teammates my best friends and overall, I give memorial high school five stars.
I liked the overall environment McAllen Memorial High School provided me for my four years as a student. Everything was made easy and quick to access such as tutoring, events, opportunities, and much more. I’m glad I was able to attend this school because I truly liked going, to see the same teachers back, my friends around me, the principal and assistant principals greeting us each and every morning. It was a great feeling to be wanted at a school, it made me want to learn in the classroom each and every day and become better than the day before.
