Menchville is a high school where it is SUPER easy to get involved. I’m a high school senior who has been involved all 4 years and being involved makes time go by so much faster and makes time enjoyable! However, it’s kind of sad when the end is near because life at menchville is so fun and the whole faculty is very inclusive and get to know you personally! I feel lucky to have had the chance to go there:)

My school, Menchvile is a wonderful place to learn, meet with other people, and prepare for college. However, there are many fights during the school year, and that is a distracting factor in the school. The security gaurds sometimes do their jobs and sometimes do not do it well. The majority of the school is clean, but the restrooms usually aren't. I have been attending this school for almost two years and can attest to this fact. There are some teachers who do not teach well, and some who do, depending on how they teach. Some teachers treat some students better than others, but some treat the class with equality. The school is a diverse place, and it is easy to meet new people of other backgrounds and cultures. Some teams are good when it comes to sports, and others need more practice, but overall they do their best.
I love the faculty and staff at menchville. I have had very few teachers over my four year that I have found to be rude or Unwilling to help. Most of my teachers are always willing to stay after with me and help me understand the material. Menchvilles AP classes are complex and challenging yet manageable. The AP teachers at menchville not only prepare the AP students for the AP exam but they also prepare students for college. The only thing that need to change at menachville is that there should be a magnet program. The students at menchville are exceptional and bright. Some prehighscool students choose to not to attend menchville solely on the fact that there is no magnet program. It’s crazy to me that the school with the highest pass rate for AP exams, highest grade point averages, and that has been fully accredited all four years that I have attended has no magnet program.
