Memorial Senior High School Reviews

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.
I enjoyed my high school experience. The teachers that I had were always willing to lend me a helping hand. There was never a time that I could not go in for extra help. They made sure that I was fully equipped with the knowledge I needed. The atmosphere here is good. The school spirit could be much better though! Overall, I have had a great time here.
