    "I have been robbed several times due to the high crime area surrounding the school. Girls have been continually harassed here trying to make it home. The teachers don't care about education. Kids are suspended every other day and they don't offer many AP classes. I'm a junior and I can't wait to get out."

    "Memorial is an excellent school. im a current student, at the beginning i didn't want to go to memorial. now i love it. it becomes your 2nd home, thats if you become involved in activities. the language clubs even offer your children to go with a group of students and parents and visit france, spain, or italy. the teachers are great! its true, they aren't just teachers, they become your friends. they try to help you in every way possible. there is a large list of extra activities. from film to video production to art and wayyy many more. if you send your child here, i would recommend it."

    "I am a sophmore at MHS and if your thinking of sending your child to this school i think you should first see how unorganized this school is. Theres classes that are always full. The halls are just to crowded. Moreover, theres no air conditioner so its very difficult to concentrate with the hot air. They also had all summer to prepare for the schedules and students had like 3 classes and you couldnt even talk to your counciler. It is an unorganized school!"

    "Memorial H.S. has always been an excellent school. I graduated from that school in 89 and now my daughters attend this school. The academic curriculum is excellent, my daughters are honors students and the classes are challenging to the. The school is what you make of it. If you want to learn, you'll learn, if you want to hang out and be left behind, then you do that. Parents blame the schools and teachers, it is not the school staff, its the parents, you need to become more involved in your child's education. You children learn what they see at home."

    "MHS is an amazing place to learn and grow. They offer countless extracurricular programs in a wide range of interests, from band, to athletics, to television production. It is unfortunate that the student body seems to have an apathetic attitude towards the opportunities being offered. The teachers are phenomenal. They form friendships with the students and do everything in their power give to students the knowledge they need to successfully graduate. Unfortunately, MHS focuses entirely too much on discipline. Students are constantly removed from class to deal with detention/suspension issues. MHS does not prepare students for college. It doesn't really prepare them for anything post-high school. There are no programs that teach them about using resources, researching methods, preparing for exams, and how to prepare for college life (including dorming)."
