I am a homeschool student, which may have some disadvantages when it comes to participating in sports. However the Merrimack school district has made it possibly for me to participate in my local highschool sports such as swimming!

The Merrimack School District provides students with opportunities to succeed if they choose to make their path. The community cares and most of the teachers are their to cultivate a safe and productive environment so that kids can learn and families can be cared for. The school has programs for both STEM and art students or anyone looking to experience both and the teachers care deeply about what they are doing for the most part. The facilities are good for a high school besides for the lack of fields for some sports, but the town and school do what they can to provide the full experience.
In general, Merrimack High School has the ability to be great. However, as a student I was dissatisfied with the allocation of the schools resources between sports, clubs, and classes. Though the school administration was always well intentioned they often made decisions that were vague and left the majority of the student body confused. Though vague rules were implied with seemingly unnecessarily harsh punishments, they were not enforced by the majority of the adults in the school. Another grievance that myself and many of my classmates would agree with it the feeling of unpreparedness in regards to college. Our guidance counselors are often spread too thin and cannot generally meet all of our individual needs and concerns.
