There are some great opportunities at this school but it would be beneficial if the students were provided with more course options. I feel that the quality of the staff varies, there are some very well organized teachers and some who I feel need to take a step back and redo some of their planning. My favorite opportunity is the art programs, honestly it provides a sort of relief from the other academics.
I love Cato-Meridian. The teachers are great at their jobs and just are for the most part great at reaching out to the students. There is so much spirit and opportunities there!
