Overall, Meridian High School has been the best schooling experience thus far in my life! Qualified teachers, friendly staff, and strong student leaders all combine together to create a wonderful learning environment! Time in the classroom is always spent well, and the teachers take pride in their abilities and knowledge; this allows for enlightenment to take place in the minds of students! On top of this, Meridian High School is known for it's school spirit! As the MHS Warriors, we believe in sticking together like a tribe and making sure everyone feels at home in the walls of our school. Overall MHS is a fantastic school!

Meridian High is very special because of the student community and their school spirit. The High School is an amazing place for students to join clubs, explore career paths and grow to become active members of society. Most of the staff and teachers are amazing and very easy to work with and learn from. They also care very much about their students in every aspect. One thing I wish was better about Meridian High would be increased opportunities for clubs who are denied the permission to do certain things. I will forever cherish my days at Meridian High School as well as everything I learned and the friends I made there.
I had a great experience with athletics and social sphere but the academics just didn't feel as focused on as they should have been, even taking as many AP and concurrent courses I could, however with Idaho being ranked so low in education, I understand, still had lot's of amazing teachers!
