I really love Memphis Academy of Health Science high school; the amount of support is great and really convenient for us as students because we always have someone to turn to when times get difficult. On top of that, MAHS focuses on health studies which is very important to some students because someday they hope to start a career in the health sciences field. Overall MAHS is a great school and I highly recommend it to others.

My experience at MAHS was not the best. At first, it was a church, but the space was too small for a lot of students. The staff and students made some changes by reconstructing but it wasn't safe for the students. I will give credit to the school for taking the students on college tours, but the preparation wasn't good. I think the teachers act like they're professors like they'll still get paid if they actually taught them or not. The school needs improvement on education for the most part.
I have attended Memphis Academy of Health Sciences since the sixth grade, and I just recently graduated Valedictorian of the class of 2018. I feel this school has helped me to become the successful, determined, and outgoing person I am today. Attending this school I not only gained an education, but also gained a family and support system for the rest of my life.
