On Resources & Facilities: Since Myers Park high school is really old, some of the facilities are out dated or broken. Overall the facilities are usable, and I am sure after this huge renovation it will get better.

On Extracurriculars: Myers park high school is a super good high school, which provides students variety of course choices, clubs and extracurricular activities. The teachers and counselors are really helpful and care about our students. I would say, without Myers Park High School, I would not have been admitted by the Cooper Union.

On Teachers: Almost all teachers are fantastic. Yes, there are a few who are there only because of tenure, which is unfortunate for those who have them, but most teachers are highly qualified and love what they do.
