I have been attending Meridian High School for four years and I would not prefer any other place! Everyday I am politely greeted by all administration. It happens everywhere. In the halls on my way to class, after school, and even when I am just doing homework in the library! It really gives me a sense of welcoming and openness. It allows me to be my true self, without worrying about any risk of judgement or criticism. In addition, the teaching staff is ever-so quick to help when needed, to all students. They take so much time out of their day to ensure that each one of their students are maintaining the grades they wish to keep. And even aid in improving them further! The West Ada School District has treated me with the utmost respect and are very skilled in exercising bettering their students.

The West Ada School District has provided me with a quality academic and athletic experience. The administration and policies help keep me, and the students around me, safe and protected. The building continuously receives cosmetic and safety improvements that make our school a nice, and safe place to spend the year. The teaching staff is very knowledgeable and deal with the students well, providing a fun and open learning environment. They are free all hours of the day to answer questions, or help with problems. I've been involved in West Ada Athletics for all 4 years of my high school career which has taught me countless lessons about competition, teamwork, and overcoming adversity.
The West Ada School District is one of the best school districts around. The teachers attempt to be involved with their classes, giving students an opportunity to actually get something from their classes. The school spirit is thriving and the sports teams crushing everything. They are phenomenal!
