Because of the innovation, research, and development of our innovative learning model, Memorial Private School provides an exceptional opportunity for students who want to uncover — in recent vernacular — their “superpower.” This is a place for families who want to celebrate their child’s uniqueness, and at the same, interact with diverse students from different cultural, religious, ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
To ensure students feel safe, we create a calm learning environment where students and faculty are friendly, supportive, respectful and compassionate towards one another. We realize that in today’s society, students are experiencing heightened levels of anxiety and depression, and Memorial is a safe haven due to the low stress environment we create. For this reason, spirituality plays an important role at Memorial, where we go to chapel to center ourselves on our values and what matters most.
We also truly respect our students and their visions for the future. Every child is different and we help them ease up on themselves, so they can truly find their areas of interest and genius. Our graduates matriculate to Harvard University, St. Edward’s University, Texas Tech, University of St. Thomas, Texas A&M, University of Texas, and many other top private and public colleges and universities. In addition and equally as important, students also make excellent choices to go to community colleges, trade schools, take a gap year, or do an internship or apprenticeship.
As part of our commitment to diversity and appreciation of various learning styles, Memorial Private School is helpful to a broad spectrum of students, from those with learning differences to the gifted and talented. We firmly believe there are many myths about learning differences and firmly believe that students with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, or those experiencing medical issues should have an equal opportunity to reach their full potential. At Memorial Private School, we believe school should be a haven to lower stress and anxiety, and this alone attracts a diverse student body.
Chapel is an activity that I enjoy. I get to hear about stories of people helping each other and learn how I can be a better person. — Amy, Student
