Memorial has good teachers but the students don’t feel motivated to work. Most students don’t want to be at school and prefer to be at home sleeping. I believe that by motivating students through incentives and rewards, the students would work with the teachers to achieve better grades and enhance scholarly skills in order to be successful in college.

Truthfully, memorial high school is your stereo typical inner city school. Students were never really engaged, teachers show lack of enthusiasm and willingness to give 100% to teach students no matter the cost. When attending a school such as Memorial high school, one has to be self-motivated because resources are limited, instructors are not very helpful at times, and overall moral is woeful.
Being a student at memorial high school has its advantages and disadvantages. Most teachers are willing to help any students that need the help . Some are even willing to help students that aren't even in their class. Food here has gotten better over the years but still isn't great. Most students get along but then there are those students that think they are better than everyone else and just don't care about school. Administrators are always on the look out to make sure everyone is in class and not skipping. Teachers are very respectful and get along well with students. Although that is true, students don't always do the same. Many try to be a class clown and just end up getting in trouble. The education is great but the students are not so much.
