MUS wants you to succeed. From my time here, I’m sure of it. I’ve had 26 teachers, and all of them have wanted to better me as a student and as an individual. (Some of them have won national awards). And it has paid off: a 32 on the ACT as a Freshman is all the proof you should need to know that MUS is the place to go. Student life is excellent, as we have about 630 students, 14 sports, and about 70 clubs (some of them have also won national awards). They don’t call it a college preparatory school for nothing. If I could go anywhere for high school, it would be MUS.
Memphis University School is the best school in the Mid-South area that can prepare you for college. The teachers are always willing to help and love to see you succeed. Facilities are amazing and the food is the best! The community is very welcoming and full of tradition.
