On Food: I personally choose not to eat the food at school, so I don't have an honest review. From the times that I've had food in the cafeteria though (times that I can count on my fingers), I've had a fifty/fifty chance with the food tasting either good, or like cardboard. Tastier fruit would be nice, instead of the horrid Red Delicious apples that they have. They have good vegetarian options I'd say, but I'm not sure about anything else.

On Overall Experience: My experience at this school has been terrific. All of my teachers, despite some not being the best at teaching, have taken a sincere interest in my well being and understanding of the course. The rest of the faculty cares about the students of the school as well. The whole environment of the school feels safe and welcoming, and I like that. If I had to do high school over again, I would most definitely wish to attend Memorial again, hands down.

On Teachers: Sometimes I feel like some of the teachers have no idea what they're doing in class. Particularly some of the math teachers, but some of them are very dedicated. The English department and the Science department are really great.

On Sports & Fitness: The fields for a lot of the sports are torn up. I've heard that the pool has an unbelievably high amount of chlorine in it, but that's not too bad. More the field fact is hurting the rating.

On Extracurriculars: At school there are so many different clubs to choose from that are made just for fun, like Gaming Club, all the way to Environmental Club. It's terrific!
