These past 4 years at Menchville High School have been the best years of my life. I’ve met my closest friends, seen myself grow in academics, and got involved in several different activities. Menchville is one big family that i’m so proud to be apart of, its bittersweet that i’m going to have to say goodbye in June and start a new chapter of my life. I’m grateful for all the opportunities that Menchville has given me. I’m SCA President at Menchville and it was the best decision i’ve ever made, despite the stress, i️ have been able to meet so many people and plan the best week of the school year, homecoming week.

My experience at Menchville has been a very positive one. We have an awesome staff here as well as the culture in our school. The majority of our sports most definitely stand out. I know that if I need help with a class, I can always find the extra help that I need from my teachers. Our test scores stand above the rest in our area including the awards for AP. I know that I would not have wanted to go anywhere else for high school. Go Monarchs!
Menchville has the best teachers. They truly care about their students and bend over backwards to help them every way they can. They offer a variety of classes that may not be offered at other schools. I would love to see Menchville receive a magnet program since they are the only high school in Newport News that hasn’t been given a special program. Regardless, the school offers a lot of opportunities that are not available at even the magnet schools.
