Overall, the four years in Memorial High School were great! The school may look old and rusty however, you can not judge a book by its cover. The faculty and teachers were always prepared, they all worked well as a team when preparing big events and always showed a postive attitude. Memorial High School is known for the student’s pride as a whole, whether in the football games or special events, we all came together as a school to support each other and have a great time. I’m proud of being a Memorial Tiger!

As an incoming senior at Memorial High School, I reminisce about the first time I ever stepped a foot in the school. My experience has been full of extravagant memories and opportunities. Memorial High School is a school full of diversity and that is what I love about it. The opportunity of being exposed to various different people and cultures enables me as a person to build character and be able to understand what everything each person and their culture have to offer to the world. Although I am beyond grateful with the school I currently attend, schools are not perfect. I would like to see my school incorporate more access to computers as well as inform us more about colleges and scholarship opportunities.
I entered Memorial High School in September 2014. I had graduated 8th grade from a Catholic school in a nearby town. At first, I had not been exposed to so many different ethnicities and backgrounds. I had culture shock, even though I came from another town. I was in a school with no more than 500 students enrolled, we all knew each other's names and we were all friends. The amazing thing about Memorial High was the sense of family. My teachers had a huge impact on my academic career. I entered high school with some problems at home, and school was the one thing I would look forward to every morning. I was never a straight "A" student prior to my high school career. I entered Memorial High School, and I immediately excelled. All of my teachers saw a potential in me and when I saw my Final Grades for freshman year- I started believing it too. My four years at Memorial High School have mentally and physically prepared me for college and my future endeavors.
