13 Parent Reviews for Memorial High School

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 ...  Read more

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.

Memorial High School is a great school to send your kids. The school offers a variety of activities and classes to prepare you for college. Its a great place to learn not only academically, but also socially. West New York would not be the same without a MHS. Go Tigers!

I don't think Memorial is the worst school, but I also do not think it fully prepare students for college. They do offer a wide variety of sports, activities, and classes. However, I think they offer far too many 'cake' classes designed to get barely literate students out of the school in four years. ...  Read more

I totally disagree with the person who said that there are no extra curricular activities. There are plenty of extra curricular activities at Memorial, now if you have decided to live your life as a hermit, that is something else. Memorial may not be the best school there is, but if you make something ...  Read more

Memorial High School is a wonderful school for students who want to take advantage of the many activities that the school has to offer. I have to confess, at the beggining I was reluctant to send my children to Memorial, but now I am glad I did. Memorial High School teachers and Mr. Sinisi did a great ...  Read more
