Memorial Day School is proud to be celebrating our 50th year of educating students in the Savannah area. We are even prouder of keeping to our mission of education in a Christian environment and with a family atmosphere.
Our students are loved. They "matter" as our mantra says. Our teachers believe in teaching students and not just subjects. Every student is treated as an individual, and individuals learn in different ways.
We are fortunate to have a fine staff of educators and administrators who care about our school and our students. Over 1,300 alumni have received their diplomas from Memorial Day School and have moved on in their lives. Our alumni have gone on to live their own lives in as diversified manner as they are individuals.
Memorial Day School can brag about our alumni who are now educators themselves, from school principals to classroom instructors. Among our alumni, we have doctors, attorneys, and other professionals, but, we also have store owners, and employees. We have graduates working important jobs at the Port of Savannah, Gulfstream, JCB and other local corporations. Our graduates have gone on to live successful lives in their chosen profession... A diversified group that we continue to love and respect because they matter.
So as we move into our 2nd quarter of our 2021-2022 school year, we need to look back to when it all started in August of 1971, 50 years ago.
Memorial Day School is still here. Some of the paint colors have changed, we have some new floors and lighting, there are televisions and computers now, the office has moved into the original cafeteria. There have been many changes and advancements made to the physical plant, but the heart of Memorial Day hasn't changed.
We will continue to educate the only way we know how: one student at a time. We will continue to work with individuals to help them achieve their academic success. We will love our students and their families because THEY MATTER.
