    I have a problem that seems to be happening at almost every school I thought about sending my child. Schools are more and more starting to look like prison. Bars cameras cops with guns or sticks dogs tire blowout chains and parking bars. My son would have went to Memorial but I honestly couldn't send him to jail. I see that nearby small school Jones has an on duty guard and swipe badges for students to be let in doors. I can't abide by that either. I looked for and found the most open free thinking progressive school i could find. Perhaps it's this way because it doesn't have the funding Edmond has. Perhaps I'm wishing for a 1950's school that doesn't exist anymore. My son made A's at Will Rogers & Central. I just don't care for this level of 'control'. Anyway Will Rogers was fine Central was as well but I just couldn't tolerate the control drug testing guilty until proven innocent. sigh............

    I student taught here in Vocal Music and Memorial is known state-wide as being one of the best high schools in the state for their music programs including band and orchestra. I can't speak for the classes but I can speak about the students I came into contact with everyday. They came from all walks of life behaved appropriately had great attitudes and a sincere desire to succeed. Granted that was in choir a class that they chose to take but I can imagine it would carry over to their core curriculum classes.

    Most of the teachers are very involved in the learning process of my child. Most are wonderful! Principal assistant principal very nice and helpful. Lots of skills offered and most teachers are excited about teaching and try hard to get to know the teens they teach. They only offer l photographer to take pictures we need a choice on this. Lunches are good.

    Im not a parent I am a former student. Memorial was a great school. Lots of AP classes highest average ACT score in the state and lots of great sports. By far the best school in Edmond and the state.

    I have one daughter who graduated from Memorial and a son who is presently a junior. Opportunities abound at this school. There is something for everyone from academics to sports to performing arts. I must admit that I am a little biased because I teach at Memorial but as a parent I could not be more pleased about my own children's education here.

    Great high school. 2 kids through there. Active participation by teachers and counsellors for kids to succeed. Lots of resources for academic sports and the arts. Fantastic music drama and performance program to enhance the sholastic life. Allows for concurrent college enrollment if the student works through the AP course offerings. Dynamic environment with new teachers and administrators moving through and being promoted. Remodelled buildings are up to date. #1 in the State in many categories. Highest average SAT scores. Minimal or no disruptive gang or bad elements to contend with.
