The students are either great or horrible. Community opinion takes precedent over student well-being. Most staff is very understanding and seems to work towards a better school in the future.

I've grown up here. Gone to Meridian my entire life. The atmosphere is absolutely amazing and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.
We have a few clubs and organizations you can join. Most are fun and do a good job at getting students involved. There are different sports to join and its easy to join if you want to. We have a lot of support for these organizations whether its from faculty, students, and parents.
