Memorial High School Reviews

Memorial High School can truly be considered the pride of the west side of San Antonio, Texas. Throughout the years as a student, I have seen many changes in the school and I know it will not be the same after I graduate. Memorial strives for academic and athletic excellence in their students and their band is small but united and caring. Memorial offers a variety of endorsements and college programs for their students, such as the early college program and Alamo Academies program, both with the Alamo Colleges District in San Antonio. Memorial also has many extracurricular clubs and organizations to help their students get involved in their community and make memories during their time at Memorial. Although it is a school mainly populated with Hispanics, the student body is very diverse. Additionally, Memorial has supportive counselors and teachers that do their best every morning to spread positivity and understand their students. Go Minutemen!

Currently a Junior in High School at Memorial High School and so far i love the experience. With obstacles from the Early College program and the awesome marching band program, I’m going to love looking back years from now!
At Memorial High School, my experience so far has been decent. I have met many new friends since in my district, there are only 3 high schools. I am very shy, but I have still managed to meet new people. I have worked hard all throughout my entire years here and so in terms of academics, I am satisfied with how I am doing. Not many teachers are actually that encouraging to the students, but they do say other pathways for a student after high school besides college, which I appreciate. Most students are Hispanic, so there is not much diversity, but I like this because I can relate to them. Overall, I have enjoyed my time at this high school though.
