Myrtle Beach is just like any other school but what make it more than average is the teachers, the teachers strive to help all students prepare themselves for college and to try to get them in advanced classes. My time in Myrtle Beach taught me leadership and responsibility over my grades anf because even though teacher try to get you in advance classes but they can’t force you so I had to realize that if I wanted to be something in life I had to focus on my books and not worry about what my friends wanted to do but it was hard because there was many things that would get in my way and I’ll use focus for awhile. Overall Myrtle Beach is a great school if you can stay focus.

Had a wonderful two years at this school- the sports program was phenomenal and very accommodating. A large majority of the teachers are there to help and work with the students on making their education worth while. As a personal preference I have never seen a school with so much freedom when it came to their arts program. The walls of the art rooms are painted head to toe in the students art, a truly amazing art program.
During my time at Myrtle Beach High School, I've learned new personal strategies on how to study and review notes to help me school work and manage my time better. The school has a good diverse set of students which makes time in the classroom more lively. As of right now, I'm in my senior year and every time I walk into class, there's a fun new activity awaiting my classmates and me.
