If you put your mind to it than anything is possible! My experience was overall okay. To be honest, it was like we were in a prison with all the cages around the stairs so students wouldn’t skip class. I say it was okay because at least my friends made it more fun and the teachers made us do projects which for me were really fun and took your mind off things.

Memorial is a wonderful High school campus. That allows you the opportunity for college readiness. Though out my four years of attending Memorial high school it has been the best high school experience for me, with our amazing team of administrators, intelligent teachers and I can’t forget our amazing student body. Memorial is everything you need to succeed in high school with the exception of diversity. Through all our amazing pros the one con I think that sticks out he most is our lack in diversity. I feel as though Port Arthur as a whole and even Texas as a whole is very diverse. So for us to have over half a percentage of one race against another just doesn’t give us very much to work with to become open minded individuals as well as many other problems .
I been at Memorial High School for about 3 years ago. The school was good and I really enjoy my life at Memorial High School. My favorite experience at the school was that I like eating lunch, talk to my friends, and be on my phone without no classwork assignments. My goal at my high school is to make some good grades. For example I always make a A&B on a progress and a report card. I do my work whenever I was given an assignment from my teachers. That’s how I made good grades to be in the A&B Honor Roll. Right now my high school journey is over because I just graduated last month on June 6, 2020. I am planning on going to college at Lamar Insititute of Technology and I will missed my old high school. I will also missed my teachers and
adults of who I know.
