My experience with Merrillville school has been very well. I like how each student is able to express themselves,their beliefs, opinions ,and skills without getting looked down upon. Each student is uplifted by someone or is uplifting someone else. I would like to see a change in the number of students passing their math courses each year. I believe with more time and dedication invested into the failing children of this course students will be able to reach the level of success they desire. Merrillville does offer tutoring in this course however many students don’t take advantage of this opportunity. So if a student is failing I believe they should automatically be forced to go to these tutoring courses.

My overall experience at Merrillville was decent. I has good relationships with some teachers and administrators. Merrillville is was very diverse school. The teachers here can vary from loving there job to dreading. For example, a distinct few of teachers here, just plainly mono teach. There's no enthusiasm or interest in there teaching. How do you expect to catch the students interest in learning without it. Next,I feel as if some teachers only focus on disciplining students than actually teaching. Disciplining students should be a must but not when your interfering with other students learning. Another, is the school safety here needs to change here. I feel as if our school resource office can be nonchalant about certain things and serious with other.
I have traveled to almost every state in the country and Merrillville High School is the most diverse school I have ever been to with probably almost if not every ethnicity and culture there. There are plenty of clubs, sports, arts, and after school programs for everyone to find something to get involved in. The teachers really care about the students education and often make time or opportunities for out of classroom assistance even though they do not get paid to do so on their own time. It is a very safe school with many protocols set in place and there are not many issues with violence. I would like to see more funding in the
technology and computer labs as well as a little more funding in the math department.
