Myrtle Beach High School has been my home away from home for the past four years of my life. The staff is extremely welcoming and make learning fun to be a part of! I was always surrounded by school spirit everywhere I went. People truly take pride in knowing they've graduated from Myrtle Beach High School and I am going to be one of them. While I did love the environment, we often underwent changes to our schedule. As the new principal is still trying to figure out the best way to run the school, our start times and class lengths would vary from year to year. Hopefully this will change in the near future so they can have set schedule for students to follow.
