Merrill Community Schools Reviews

3 reviews
Merrill is a small school, and that makes it possible for students to get personalized help when they're struggling in a class. The curriculum covers the requirements, but there are no AP classes for more advanced students. A dual enrollment program is offered instead. Because the school is small, it has to cater to the average student, and there should be more college prep. I've always felt safe at Merrill, and despite what some students say, the lunches aren't half bad. The teachers are supportive, interesting events are held, and our sports teams have endless encouragement.

One of the best things about Merrill Community Schools was that it was a part pf a small community. This allowed for a very close connection with everyone around. No matter, there was very little diversity in this school due to its location. This is something i believe that Merrill schould try to fix. Once out in the real world the students of Merrill are going to need their eyes opened. Ideally this should start in the school.
The Dual Enrollment program is extremely important and can help a lot with college readiness. The administration genuinely cares about how well the student body is doing, and it shows. With being a small school everyone is very close knit.
