I have loved attending Meridian Early College High School. The school encourages students to go off campus and take college courses at a local college during their junior and senior year. They pay for the classes and assist their students in any way they can. This is a great opportunity for students and I have loved taking part in it. They also help push students into learning about new tech programs which is very helpful in preparing students for their futures!

My experience at Meridian has been great the past four years! Although I'm a bit nervous about graduating and leaving, I know that the teachers and staff here have helped prepare me for these upcoming years of my life.
I attended this high school for 5 years. The first normal 4 years were good, I never failed a class. The extra year was an extended program they had just started. The 5th year program is amazing, it allows you to take a year at Delta college for free if you decide to. The school has many ways to prepare you for your college years. You're able to duel enroll at either Bay-Arenac career center or Delta college in your Junior and senior years to help get you started in college or career work. Some of my class mates graduated high school with an associate degree as well. I didn't take advantage of these programs because I felt I was not ready. I would recommend trying anyways. I did the 5th year program and got my first two semesters of community college done with almost nothing out of my own or my family's pocket.
