My experience at Pelham Memorial High School has been one of great prestige. Not only have I grown as an individual and young adult, but I have adapted many skills that consist of interacting with people, especially my teachers. Attending Pelham Memorial High School is more than getting a high school degree, as the staff there is truly dedicated with providing students, such as myself, with the best experience possible.
The educational system at Pelham Memorial High School is excellent in my opinion. Most of the teachers are really knowledgeable, genuine and helpful. The work load can be attainable based on the classes you are enrolled in, however the cirrculum in this school requires more work ethic based on how the teachers determine the difficulty of the tests, quizzes and based on how much work load they want their students to handle. Another factor that contributes to the school curriculum at Pelham Memorial High School is how competitive it can be and how much involvement the parents within the community have in the school.
