I like how the teacher's are available to help you when you don't understand something or need help preparing for tests, exams, presentations, or reports. The CRTC program at Concord High School, that is available for MVHS students to apply to, has been been an amazing opportunity. I have learned so much about the nursing field and I believe it is giving me a head start to my classes that I will be taking at the college level. The athletic programs have great team spirit and sportsmanship.

Merrimack Valley School District encompasses a positive community and environment. It hosts a great learning experience, where everyone is encouraged to reach their highest potential. The administrators are very friendly and get to know the students on a personal level. The technology is up-to-date and will hand out laptops to everyone in the future. Overall, Merrimack Valley School District is a great district to send students to.
It is an overall fairly decent school, with a tight-knit community and good community values. The faculty and administration make attempts to connect to the student body and get them to engage, but more often miss than hit.
