I just went to my son's 8th grade graduation from this school. Mr Schupp, the Principal, is such a caring, wonderful man. He gave a beautiful speech about what he expects from the children and how much he cares for them. I was almost moved to tears. Memorial is very lucky to have a principal like ...  Read more

Had to transfer my daughter out of this GHETTO school!! The poor teachers in this school are not equipped to deal with the bullying, cussing and just plain disrespect of the students. My child had to WAIT 10 min after the bell rang EACH DAY for their teachers to get control of the class in order for ...  Read more

I only went to this school two years and it was living torture. The teachers are nice but even they are scared. The students have taken over the school and cuss and talk back to the teachers. Even when I got straight A's, it wasn't challenging. This could probably be from the students not letting the ...  Read more

I am a parent new to Lansing. I have a child at Memorial Junior High. Memorial's teachers and administration are very understanding and attentive anytime I have sent an email or phone call they have all been returned. All conference requests were honored and the children behave pretty much as you expect ...  Read more

This school is one of the worst schools my children have been to and I am putting 6 kids through school. The teachers are so willing to share any of your childrens imformation with anyone they choose. I could go on and on but believe me dont send your children there you will be sorry

It's nice looking now with the new building, but it is not run very well. The kids are un-informed, because the teachers are unwilling to help. Some of the teachers are nice, but shouldn't be teaching 7th graders.

I admit Memorial is not the best school, but you can't be too picky in Lansing. Im in high school now and looking back, im glad I moved from Cal City and went to memorial. I think parents are too harsh. Mr. Zimbleman is a great principal. Yea, there may be a lot of detentions and suspensions, but when ...  Read more
