Myers Park High School is a great place for students of all diversities. There is a wide range of academic programs offered: IB, AP, honors... The sports are incredible, especially the football team which is nationally ranked in the top 100 teams. The administrators are very passionate about school safety, especially with this being such a large campus. Whether you are into sports, academics, or another club/program, Myers Park is the school for you!

As a student in Myers Park IB the courses are quality and include many of the most engaging teachers, but also has its fair share of infamous and disliked teachers. The academic atmosphere among the IB kids has a bad habit of comparing who has it worse workload-wise and much bonding happens through commiseration. The general school atmosphere is very friendly, and staff are eager to help students who speak up. Students who don't seek out help however, will easily fall through the cracks. The theater program is incredibly dedicated and passionate, putting on two large hit shows a year and several smaller performances. The chorus program is a wonderful experience for students who are already talented singers, and caters strongly towards their development. Clubs are many and varied, most all of them student run, with very little teacher input. There is a clear divide in the quality of old and new buildings, and many mobile classrooms. Overall a very good school with a beautiful campus.
Myers Park High School is a phenomenal public high school. The staff is great and even though it is a very large campus, the staff works hard to make sure the needs of all students are met no matter the income or class rank. Just like any school, you have to do the work to make sure you are meeting goals but if you reach out, they are always there to help. MPHS is diverse in its offerings and really prepares students for college. They offer a wide variety of clubs, sports and activities. There is truly a place for everyone at "the Park"!
