I graduated from MHS back in 2008 and let me first say that I was so happy to finally be out of that school. No one accepts you especially if your not from Maryville. They only accept students who have the RIGHT last name, are rich, christian, and straight. There is constant bullying and no one does anything about it. I was bullied and harassed constantly and no one did anything about it, the harassment was so bad that even my house got vandalized. This is a small school so pretty much everyone knows everything about everyone at lightning speed. Stuff transfers from the high school to the middle school pretty fast that I was even getting bullied by middle schoolers. If you are going to move here to Maryville I highly suggest you find somewhere else to live cause you will be highly disappointed. I'm not surprised that this school have so many students that drop out or just end up stop coming to class.

Maryville high school does an injustice to many students in the district. Many students who have more talent in academics and/or athletics are held back to make sure that students with the 'right' last name are at the top. It is very systematic throughout the community. Parents and teachers start the process when students are in the elementary grades and by the time they get to high school, many talented students have been discouraged and are robbed of their potential.

This is a great school if you're a straight, Christian, white, athletic, rich person. Many of the students are close-minded to new things, yet many of them aren't. The arts are severly underfunded, and the sports are extremely over-funded. Academically, as long as students listen and pay attention, they should be quite capable of making good grades.

Ditto to the above comment.-Doesn't prepare kids for the real world outside of Maryville. It's all about 'who' their parent is. Even then, there is a backward way of deciding the 'who's who' among parents. What do they base it on? Many kids with as much talent, personality and desire as others get left out and become discouraged about succeeding in academics and sports in this district.

I attendend MHS and feel that this school is very insufficient if you want your child to truly evolve and be educated. They are very self-absorbed with who you are or who your parents are. Look at some recent statistics and this school falls way before the college entrance exams 'norm.' Someone needs to correct this otherwise our children will learn nothing except for a select few.
