    "Most teachers will do whatever they can to help you, but I did encounter those that were not as helpful. Most really cared about their students' success, but others did not. Overall I got lucky with teachers and always had good ones. But I was forced to switch out of a few teacher's classes because of their lack of availability/ helpfulness."

    "A wide variety of courses are offered at school, but teachers were not always the best at teaching them. Scheduling classes that you needed was the worst, depending on your counselor. Mine was bad and assumed I was stupid and put me in average classes and I had to switch out of all of them. Workload was manageable even with 4 AP classes, sports, and activities. Popular classes were determined by the teacher and how easy they were."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "The students at Menchville are either involved or they are not. There is no in between. Most students are either black or white, and friend groups are made accordingly. There are very few outsiders of these two groups, so I would say diversity is quite lacking, but that is because there was little diversity in the whole city. A few gay and lesbian students, but not many."

    "I loved Menchville. As a sophomore in college now, I sometimes want to go back. I had an awesome experience and met so many new friends. I was really involved in school and loved to compete with my cross country team. I would do high school over in a heartbeat."

    "I have been able to go to a very successful school with a wide variety of activities. I was able to get involved in whatever I felt like getting involved in. I had a lot of help from my administration and counseling offices when I was dealing with social situations. That being said, the only thing that I didn't like about high school was the kids, but that wasn't avoidable. I think Menchville is unique because all of the teachers and staff want you to succeed, even the janitors I became close to. Our principal, Mr. Surry, is the best principal I have been able to have in my education so far. He goes above and beyond the goals and expectations to push Menchville to be the best in the city."
