The bathrooms are never cleaned, the trash is never taken, the roof is constantly leaking, there is mold growing out the vents in the classrooms, and all around just not taken care of.

Myrtle Beach is a great school the only thing I don't like is how the girls' varsity basketball coach always down grading the team. Yes, everyone thinks she is nice but behind close doors she is very rude. She talks the girls down saying they will never win a championship and that she's ready for this season to be over. Those girls love basketball but you can see it in their faces they are not happy. Those girls need a coach that will love them and lift their spirits up whether they winning or losing. They just need to get a whole new coach for next year.

The staff who answer the phone don't provide his/her name. As a parent, I'm treated as if I'm not welcome at the school and I'm not to speak unless spoken to. I have to call the school numerous times to request the same information. Before the beginning of the school year, I called numerous times to find out ahead of time, when meet the teacher night was and was told they didn't have a date set yet. I found out about the date the day before. It's no surprise there is such a poor turn out for meet the teachers.
