Merrimack School District Reviews
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.
Merrimack School District is your average school district. Facilities, money, and academics are all sufficient, but not exemplary. The strengths of Merrimack, specifically the high school, is its teachers and extracurriculars. I have found an abundance of dedicated, engaged, and highly qualified teachers at Merrimack High. These teachers created an incredible variety of extracurricular activities. The academic, service, and community clubs at the school are diverse and active. The only issue is the student body. The student body is, in my opinion, cliquey, harsh, and unmotivated. In all grades, there are those students who put in the effort and dedication to accomplish great things. However, the bulk of the students at Merrimack find little motivation to engage with each other or with the school activities. Overall, Merrimack High School has all the resources to create an exemplary high school. However, the largely unmotivated student body holds the school back from greatness.
Great School! Not to big or small. Has some amazing classes that give students great opportunities such as the voc programs. The student council does a fantastic job of keeping all the students involved throughout the year.
