This school is filled with such amazing and caring teachers, I will truly never forget them and am so grateful to have encountered such special people. However, EPMHS needs to bring back more electives, sports and clubs for students to take. I admire that they have clubs for religions, and sexual orientations, etc. However, they should make their sports more inclusive, such as having a football team for females or bringing back culinary classes. Clubs and activities are what makes high school bearable to be honest, so having a wider selection of them would be so much better. In addition, i believe that the school focuses way too much on the dress code, a student's education for the day should not be sacrificed because they are wearing a crew neck with a logo, or not wearing a polo! They need to do better with that! Overall, i enjoyed my experience at this school.
I've only been at Memorial Senior High School for the past 6 months since I am a high school freshman, however since the middle school and high school are in the same building, I have known the school for three years. I am currently in the Academy program, which I am so grateful that my school offers it because it places me in the best classes to prepare for college! However, I wish my school had more programs for their students. For example, a visual/performing art program, or a business program that is took all throughout high school, not only junior & senior year. I wish there was a way to fit in an elective freshman & sophomore year too, while still taking all the required courses.
This HS needs to reevaluate the purpose of schooling and the priorities of the community. The biggest problem at the school is the lack of accountability for teachers/administration/staff treating students poorly. The amount of times I or my peers felt unsafe regarding racial and social issues is a shame. Students concerns are never taken seriously and all faculty will go to extremes to defend the inappropriate behavior of their colleagues. The school did the bare minimum in preparing us for college and the "normal" track for the average student doesn't even include what many colleges require/strongly recommend for acceptance. I was never able to take all of the courses I wanted/was supposed to because of scheduling conflicts. However, what I am most grateful for is the few teachers/faculty who were genuine, passionate about teaching or their field, never judgmental and taught me lessons applicable to the "real world." These amazing faculty should have more influence.
