MCHS is definitely a school for academically focused students. While I know that this is a great school, I feel that the disciplinary actions taking by administrators are a bit to much. At the current MCHS, If a student does not complete his/her not only will they receive a 0/F for the assignment. They could also receive a detention and/or an infraction. To me this is like double or triple punishment for one action. When I think of this policy, I think of 1=2. The 1 represents the action taken by the student and the 2 represents the consequence given ( either good or bad). Excluding that, MCHS is a great small school.

MCHS is indeed the greatest high school in the city of Memphis, hand down! Mrs. Michelle Brantley-Patterson (pricipal) & Mrs. Rhonda Black ( asst. principal) make the greatest team of high school administrators. I love the dedication that I see in the staff and faculty. I have one daughter who has graduated from there and two sons who still attend and they have done a great job in preparing my kids for college and endeavors beyond. Long after my kids hsall have left MCHS, I will continue to be a supporting source for this school. I highly recommend it. Minister Odis L. Jones, Sr.

As a Class of 1993 Alumnus, I rate MCHS as an excellent school for the students that it serves. The school has changed some from my time there but the mission is the same...educate young people so that they may be productive members of society.

This school is the Greastest! Ms. Mitchell and her teaching staff really care about what happens to the children and families the serve. Other high school should learn from their positive examples. Hope they keep up the execellent work. God Bless them all and thanks!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
