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"!
Myers Park is a great school when considering all of the classes and extracurriculars offered. There is a wide variety, which really allows a student to do what they really want to. There are many electives available, many AP courses offered, as well as a well-reviewed IB program. There are a large number of clubs available for all students as well as many sports to play at both the varsity and junior varsity level. While the campus is very large, there are so many students that there is always someone to be friends with. I have never felt alone as far a being a student as the counseling staff is very helpful as well. Myers Park also has a great PTA, which allows our school to get many perks like new technology and classroom upgrades. Sporting events are always a blast because the Mustang spirit is shown through, not only the students but the parents as well. I am proud to be a Mustang for life.
