It honestly was not too good but not so bad. When I got there, not very many people reached out to me which I guess is fine but when I tried to reach out, they were one and done. They all had their friends and didn't care for anyone else really. The teachers only really care about themselves and not the kids, and the sports are terrible! As for clubs we have quite a bit but I never heard about them, and they have lots of diversity there! And stuco was not very good and announcing spirit week or anything important. I didn't even know who the senior class president was until graduation.

All four of my children attended Meridian High School, and I cannot say enough good things about our experiences! From the administrative staff to the janitors, the employees were professional and welcoming. The principal took personal interest in our family, knew everyone by name, and always stopped to talk to my kids in the hall or at sporting events. Two of my children were involved in Varsity sports, and two were involved in Special Education. No matter at what level a child performed, they were made to feel no different, and everyone was treated equally. I never worried about my children's safety, or their emotional well being. They were prepared to enter into adulthood and post-high school education with confidence and drive. Our third graduate is now attending college, and still speaks highly of her four years at MHS, crediting that time for much of her personal success. We all give MHS the highest marks, and are thankful for such a well-rounded educational experience.
School spirit is rather special here, and the students are pretty easy to get along with. Seniors talk to freshmen, and vice versa. Everyone is a warrior here, and that's all that matters to us. There are alright honors and AP teachers here, some ARE really good though. However all teachers seem to want to be your friend, along with admin. Overall the vibe that you get here is unlike anything else
