Meridian High School has been a very accepting school and great place to be at. The teachers are friendly, the students are respectful, and the faculty is very helpful and nice. I started here as a freshman and loved it ever since. I found a nice group of friends who have supported me through all my endeavors. Coaches have supported me and molded me into the person I am today. I love this school and i always will. Go Jackets!

Meridian HS has been an awesome experience for me. I have enjoyed my teachers, my classmates and my principal is amazing! She really cares about our school!
It is very small. There are not very many academic opportunities such as AP/IB or clubs/societies. The food is more often than not gross. There is not very much diversity when it comes to race/religion/politics, as most around Meridian are middle-class white conservatives. Some of the teachers are amazing and really care about you, but others have been there so long, they really don't try anymore. If you are boy, the sports program is great! For girls, not so much. The same could be said about the relationship between Varsity/Junior varsity players.
