Meridian was the perfect melting pot of all the different cultures and personalities Whatcom Washington has to offer. While many school contain one specific type of person, Meridian was diverse, and most importantly, everyone got along. The teachers were great, the involvement was great, everything was great.

One of the many things I liked about Meridian School District was the encouragement from the wonderful teachers and staff members. Their continuous support helped me overcome many barriers, along with obtaining many academic achievements. When I walk out of this high school, I will always treasure and carry along the memories I shared with the teachers -- they will always be my motivators and the bridge to my success.
