As a running start student, I was Highly displeased on with the administration at Meridian High School. When I was a sophomore the admin had a running start student come in and parents. This particle running start student had failed out of the program and discussed why running start would be a bad design. The administration did not bring in some who for supporting running start. As a student, I found that not fair to the student who would thrive in the program. On the flip side, however, the teachers were extremely supportive and respectful of the decisions that a student would make.

I was involved with Meridian Public School District since the 1st grade. I’ve always loved school. I think the teachers are friendly and most of them will work with you to make sure that you get the help you need. I am now a Senior at Meridian High School. I have enjoyed our senior activities. I like that we have the graduation at Ray stadium every year, and I hope that they keep this tradition alive. I feel safe while I’m at school because they keep the doors locked. I do think that Meridian High’s campus is too open though. There are many ways to enter the campus without anyone knowing. They should put up gates or something and keep them locked.
The experience at Meridian High is decent it could be better but, to me is alright enough to stay. The things they could improve are teaching skills to students and being organized on certain events and activities
